Patrick Gillespie about Duncan Gillies MacLaurin’s poetry and songs: “His combined sense of meter, rhythm and phrase is powerful – and among the most accomplished of any poet currently writing traditional poetry. This acrostic form he’s created is a bravura show-piece. There are probably only a handful (meaning fingers on one hand) of poets who could manage it as slyly and insouciantly.”
