Greentrax Newsletter - June 2016
Celebrating 30 years of sending Scottish music worldwide
The Edinburgh City Police Pipe Band was one of the most universally recognised and successful pipe bands of all time. In its 130-year history it won virtually every competition award and accolade available.
This album represents Pipe Major Iain McLeod's personal selection of tracks from the Band's five albums under his leadership. It illustrates that the quality of the Band's performances has stood the test of time over more than half a century, despite considerable advances in recording equipment and instrument technology.
We should be able to despatch this pre-order title to you in advance of the official release date of 5th July.
2016 is the 30th Anniversary of Greentrax Recordings Ltd. This double CD has been selected from the "special projects" of the past 30 years and celebrates this milestone.
This selection includes tracks from albums which were later featured in sell-out concerts at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, as well as other albums which were actually recorded live at Celtic Connections and other venues.

The oral tradition of the Hebridean island of Tiree began to be recorded by The School of Scottish Studies soon after its inception in 1951. Its first full-time collector and researcher, Calum MacLean visited in 1953 and his recordings are the earliest from the island in the Sound Archive. He was followed by Dr Hamish Henderson and several others.
