GUEST,David Owen Hand - biographical information? (10) Owen Hand 12 Jan 10

Just been listening to Dick Gaughan singing the Owen Hand song 'My Donald'. Its a stunning performance of an immensely moving song. Does anyone know anything about Owen Hand? He appears to have shone brightly for a short period at the end of the 60s and then vanished

'My Donald' is a song about the men who hunted whales - and I read somewhere, that Hand, as a young man, was a member of one of the last whaling fleets to operate out of Scotland. Don't know if that is correct. Anyone know any thing more about Owen Hand??
