The advance orders on Fraser Bruce’s album Every Song’s A Story have been amazing. The first pressing is due for delivery from the factory on 29th October and pre-orders from this website will be despatched then.

Dick Gaughan’s Harvard Tapes continues to be a top seller.

Elaine (our accounts and toyalties person) has worked her socks off throughout 2020 adapting a new royalty accounting system to replace the old and outdated one. All recordings have now been dealt with but there are still some publishing issues to be completed. Good news for artists - album royalties will be paid in January/February 2021.

Brian McNeill has occupied himself during the coronavirus lockdown by furiously writing new books. What a talent - singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter, record producer and author, among other talents. On his April release No Silence, Brian unsurprisingly plays all the instruments!

Stevie Palmer’s recent album We Become The Sunshine has been “album of the week” on a number of radio programmes since its September release.

Radio Regentrude in Germany have made Greentrax Recordings their Featured Label Partner Of The Week commencing 28th September. Additionally, Greentrax song tracks were also part of their Song Of The Week. Greentrax Recordings will be presented on Sunday October 4th between 4pm and 6pm.

After many months of lockdown, Greentrax is again operating out of the office at Cockenzie on a full-time basis. Elaine has returned to the office with her computer, after running Greentrax almost single handed (and doing a brilliant job) throughout the lockdown period, while Ian was in isolation at home! Both are enjoying the return to working in the office – and near normality.

We are hearing of many radio plays for the Stevie Palmer album We Become The Sunshine. We believe this album should have very wide interest.

The Dick Gaughan album The Harvard Tapes - Definitive Gaughan Concert From 1982 continues to be a bestseller. A large royalty is going to Dick from these sales.

With the lockdown behind us, new projects are getting underway again and include A Tribute To Hamish Henderson Volume 2 - being produced by Dr Fred Freeman with singer John Morran and others - and two solo piping albums, by the hugely talented Eddie Seaman and Kyle Warren.

Also in the pipeline is an album by Fraser Bruce. This is Fraser’s first solo venture for a long, long time and after his more recent collaboration with brother Ian Bruce.

Brian McNeill’s album No Silence is now in stock and orders placed through this website are being despatched. The album will be officially released on 1st April. Brian will launch the album with an extensive European tour.

Stevie Palmer’s new album (untitled as yet) is now being mastered, and the mixes make it quite something, with different sounds from track to track. Stevie sang his song Black Is The Sun at the Far, Far From Ypres stage shows and his performance received much praise.

Scottish piper Eddie Seaman will record his debut album for Greentrax in the Summer. Eddie studied at The Royal Conservatoire Of Scotland and already has wide experience as a soloist and as a member of several bands.

Dr Fred Freeman is currently preparing for and will be producing a Hamish Henderson Tribute Album vol 2 for release later in the year. It will include songs by Hamish, as well as other singers with their interpretations of his songs, including John Morran (Deaf Shepherd). The first Hamish Henderson tribute album A’ The Bairns O’ Adam was released on Greentrax in 2003.
