About Greentrax

Greentrax Recordings Ltd has established itself as Scotland's leading traditional music recording company, with a well-earned worldwide reputation. The company was launched in 1986 by former police inspector Ian Green, and 2011 marked our 25th anniversary. During this period Greentrax has released some 500 albums, and the current catalogue features approximately 450 items - a remarkable achievement which Ian Green is extremely proud of! The Greentrax Recordings catalogue includes the Greentrax, G2 and Celtic Collections labels, plus Grian Music Publishing.

While the press has always been generous in its praise of Greentrax, Scottish Televison also featured Ian and the company's achievements in their Artery series. In 2005 Ian was presented with The Hamish Henderson Award for Services to Scottish Traditional Music at the Scots Trad Awards, which automatically placed him in The Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame. In 2006 Ian was very proud to accept an Honorary Doctorate from the Royal Scottish Academy Of Music & Drama (Glasgow), also for services to Scottish traditional music. Various other awards have been bestowed on Greentrax, and each year Greentrax artists feature prominently in the Scots Trad Music Awards.

Visitors to the Greentrax office are amazed at the incredible mix of Scottish music the company has released. The CD booklets adorn three of the office walls. This amazing array of talent includes folk singers and groups, Gaelic singers, singers & songwriters, ceilidh bands, pipe bands, solo pipers and various other instrumental music, both traditional and contemporary.

The Scottish Tradition Series from the archives of the School Of Scottish Studies are amongst the finest of their kind, and the range continues to expand annually. The G2 label allowed further diversification and resulted in the unique Keltik Elektrik and Salsa Celtica releases, more recently Jiggin' The Blues featuring Frankie Gavin, plus other unusual albums. The Celtic Collections Series is a mid-price range of albums, culled mainly from the Greentrax back catalogue but including such original gems as Sandy Bell's Ceilidh. There are some very strong sellers in this series, which provides excellent value for money and are quality albums.
