Hamish Henderson Tribute vol 2 - Ballad Of The Banffies cover image

Hamish Henderson Tribute vol 2 - Ballad Of The Banffies

In 2003 Greentrax Recordings released the Hamish Henderson Tribute Album - A’ The Bairns O Adam. The album was produced by Dr Fred Freeman and comprised 16 tracks of songs and poems, all written by Hamish Henderson - poet, singer-songwriter, folklorist and socialist. It received wide critical acclaim and work began almost immediately on this Tribute volume 2, with most of the songs specially recorded. The principal singers are Fiona Hunter (of Malinky), John Morran (of Deaf Shepherd) and young singer Cameron Nixon. Musicians include Marc Duff (whistles), Frank MacLaughlin (guitar), Euan MacLaughlin (fiddle, banjo) and Angus Lyon (accordion, keyboards).

Ian Green recently heard the finished master of this album before it went off to the factory, and is delighted with Dr Fred Freeman’s production work. The singing throughout is stunning, with sensitive instrumental backing. The pressing is due from the factory any day and the advance orders, of which there are many, will be immediately posted out.

Ian Green’s Pick Of The Month

Ceolbeg Collected

Greentrax Managing Director Ian Green’s Pick Of The Month - £6.00 during October 2021 for this 16-track CD album. Ian writes:

“Both the band and myself are very proud of what this mainly part-time band achieved over the years. They were arguably one of the best and most exciting instrumental and vocal bands to join Greentrax - some of Scotland’s finest musicians have been members of Ceolbeg. In all Greentrax released five Ceolbeg albums, all to wide critical acclaim, and several tracks from their album An Unfair Dance were used in a David Bellamy TV series. The tracks here on Collected (released in 2013) were carefully chosen by band members and myself from the five albums. A stunning collection!”
