"...a man who devoted a lifetime to the art and who, by his magnificent playing, inspired so many others who play the fiddle in the Scottish style." Ron Gonella.
"Surely this man Hector must be one of the most beloved of men, for he spoke with the voice of his people. He brought alive their heritage, their feelings and their experiences - all of these he represents - and to me ofcourse, he was the voice of Scotland. I met this man and heard him play, I knew I was in the presence of Scottish history." Yehudi Menuhin.
"Everything he played he played with feeling. After I heard him playing 'Auld Robin Gray' I never played it again! his music will live forever." Willie Hunter.
