Scotland's Voices (CD)

Ref: CDTRAX400

The album includes tracks by the monumental Jeannie Robertson MBE (MacCrimmon’s Lament and The Battle of Harlaw); matriarch of The Stewarts of Blair, Belle Stewart MBE (The Berryfields of Blair and The Queen Among The Heather); bearing a wealth of Gaelic song and originally from Lewis, Dolina MacLennan (Tha Mi Duillich); the Border Shepherd, Willie Scott (Jamie Telfer of The Fair Dodheid and The Kielder Hunt); King of the Cornkisters, Jimmy MacBeath (Come All Ye Tramps and Hawkers and Drumdelgie); the internationally renowned revivalist Jean Redpath MBE (Auld Lang Syne); Shetland’s ambassador for the fiddle, Aly Bain MBE (Hector The Hero); and one of the three piping MacDonald brothers of Glenuig, Allan MacDonald (Thogail nam Bó).

We also thought it appropriate to include a self-penned track by Hamish Henderson (The Freedom Come All Ye) and a short poem from a key figure in the painting, Hugh MacDiarmid (The Watergaw). We’ve also included tracks by two singers not in the painting but who were approximate contemporaries of those portrayed: the internationally renowned exponent of Gaelic song, Flora MacNeil (A Mhic Iain Ic Sheumais) and the irrepressible Davie The Galoot Stewart (McGinty’s Meal and Ale).

Interestingly, the Jeannie Robertson track The Battle of Harlaw, from The School of Scottish Studies archives, was recorded by Hamish Henderson at one of his famous ceilidhs - live recordings do of course have their own challenges. Davie Stewart’s track McGinty’s Meal and Ale was recorded by the American collector, Alan Lomax.

Reclaimed - Lowland And Border Pipers' Society (CD)

Reclaimed - Lowland And Border Pipers' Society (CD)

Ref: CDTRAX390

The Lowland and Border Pipers' Society was formed in in 1983 at a time when when Lowland and Border piping had been more or less lost. Since those early days the Society has gone from strength to strength and is not only an international organisation but also has effected the biggest changes in Scottish piping culture since the introduction of piping competitions and the raising of the Highland regiments by the British Army at the end of the 18th century. With this album, The Lowland and Border Piperss' Society has set out to explore Border repertoire of tunes and songs with strong Border resonances, many of which have not previously been recorded, Each track features a different player or combination of players/musicians many of whom have been leading lights in the revival of the Border pipes, Scottish smallpipes and as members of well known bands since the 80's.

A Tribute In Music And Song To John Bellany (CD)

Ref: CDTRAX386

The late John Bellany was born and brought up in Port Seton, East Lothian, Scotland, and went on to become an artist of international renown.

His father was a boat builder in Port Seton and many of John’s paintings reflect his connection with fishing and the sea. John also had a great love of music and in fact had a ceilidh band named The Blue Bonnets in his early years.

This collection of music and songs is released as a tribute to the great man and many were John’s favourites, chosen by his wife Helen and other family members. Some items were specially written for the album in honour of John Bellany.

The front cover is Port Seton Harbour and a fine example of the artist’s work. The album royalty will go to The John Bellany Day Centre, Port Seton, which cares for the elderly in the community on a daily basis.

For Freedom Alone - The Wars Of Independence (CD)

For Freedom Alone - The Wars Of Independence (CD)

Ref: CDTRAX1314

2014 is the 700th Anniversary of The Battle of Bannockburn and Greentrax marks this important event with this compilation of songs, music and a poem by many of Scotland’s finest artists. 2014 is also the year of The Scottish Referendum and the album recognises this historical event. The title of the album For Freedom Alone is taken from The Declaration Of Arbroath, a portion of which is included on the album.

There are a total of eighteen tracks on the album, sixteen of which relate to the relevant historical period, plus two bonus tracks. Eight tracks are licensed from other companies, nine were specially recorded for the album and only three items are from the Greentrax/Culburnie labels. Fifteen tracks feature the Wars Of Independence and the exploits of William Wallace and Robert The Bruce. Wallace’s famous victory at Stirling Brig and his overwhelming defeat at Falkirk are the subjects of two songs, and of course The Battle of Bannockburn features in several.

Tracks include contributions from The Corries (the adopted National Anthem of Scotland Flower of Scotland and The Black Douglas), The McCalmans (The Lion Wallace Saw), Alastair McDonald (The Battle of Stirling Brig from an old Nevis recording and William Wallace, Knight Of Elderslie of more recent origin), Alasdair Fraser with Skyedance (Bannockburn) and Arthur Johnstone (the classic Burns song Scots Wha Hae).

Also specially recorded: Sylvia Barnes & Sandy Stanage (Lament For Wallace After The Battle of Falkirk and The Field of Bannockburn), Alex Hodgson (The Sword of Bannockburn and an Ian McCalman original written specially for this album, titled New Day), Robin Laing (Bruce at Bannockburn, dealing with the killing of Henry De Bohun by Robert the Bruce before the battle proper), Ian Bruce (De Bruce, De Bruce - a poem put to music by Ian McCalman) and George Archibald (Bruce’s Address To His Captains, part of John Barbour’s epic poem put to music by Ian McCalman).

Iain Anderson reads the humorous The Spiders Legend Of Robert The Bruce and a shortened version of The Declaration Of Arbroath.

Bonus tracks: The Referendum by Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, and the classic Both Sides The Tweed by Dick Gaughan, which we felt was important to redress any perceived imbalance - with its lines “Let friendship and honour unite, and flourish on both sides the Tweed”.

The very informative historical sleeve notes are by Jim Paris and the artwork design is by John Slavin, both deserve special mention. Ian McCalman provided many ideas, in addition to his production and musical work, and he contributed immensely to the album. The inclusion of the reproduction of the painting of The Black Douglas is included by kind permission of Ronnie Browne and The Duke of Hamilton. Ronnie’s painting hangs in Lennoxlove House.

The Music And Songs Of The Great Tapestry Of Scotland (CDx2)

The Music And Songs Of The Great Tapestry Of Scotland (CDx2)

Ref: CDTRAX372

This album has been released by Greentrax Recordings in association with 'The Great Tapestry of Scotland', which is currently being stitched on panels by hundreds of volunteers. The panels have been designed by the artist Andrew Crummy, on behalf of the Tapestry Trustees: Alexander McCall Smith, Alistair Moffat, James Naughtie, Lesley Kerr and Hugh Andrew. The Tapestry will be launched in 2013, when it will be handed over to the Nation and thereafter go on exhibition. It will depict the history of Scotland and each panel will focus on a personality or important event. The Tapestry, which will be the longest in the world, has been given the stamp of approval by The Scottish Parliament.

This double album contains forty carefully selected tracks of music and song gleaned from the extensive Greentrax back-catalogue, others licensed from various labels, including EMI, and two recorded especially for the album. It is an eclectic collection but we feel the 40 panels selected have each been appropriately represented. A huge amount of research went into compiling this double album.

No Parasan!; Scots In The Spanish Civil War (CD)

Ref: CDTRAX3639

No Parasan! is a collection of songs and a poem principally about the many Scots In The Spanish Civil War who volunteered to fight in Spain on the side of the elected Republican Government against General Franco and the fascists. The Scots volunteers fought mainly with The International Brigade which included, as the name suggests, volunteers from many other countries of the world.

When research for songs with a mainly Scottish perspective was undertaken it became immediately apparent that some very fine songs existed, but as the project advanced songwriters came forward with new and quite excellent material. Eventually fifteen songs and a poem were selected.

1. The Peatbog Soldiers (The McCalmans)
2. Jamie Foyers (Dick Gaughan)
3. Jarama Valley / Bandiera Rosa (The Laggan)
4. Another Valley (Geordie McIntyre)
5. Si Me Quieres Escribir (If You Want To Write) (Christine Kydd)
6. These Hands (The Wakes)
7. Owt For Nowt (John Watt)
8. Viva La 15th Brigada / Viva Nicaragua (Carlos Arredondo)
9. Picasso Paints Guernica (Robin Laing)
10. Graves In Spain (Eileen Penman)
11. When The Call Comes (George Archibald & Ian McCalman)
12. Salud International Brigade (Jim Brown)
13. Viva Los Brigadistas (Alison McMorland & Geordie McIntyre)
14. Hasta Luego (Frank Rae)
15. ¡No Pasaran! (Gallo Rojo)
16. Hasta La Vista - Poem (Iain Anderson)


I am sitting listening to No Paseran with tears running down my cheeks. My father would have been so honoured, proud and touched that he and his comrades were being remembered in the way so long after the struggle and the pain.
Sheen Wellington.


moving from simplistic to subtle, pompous or passionate - it radiantly delivers an eternal human message.
Norman Chalmers, Scotland on Sunday.


No. 1 Album in the Top Ten in October - Albert Reguart, Catalunya Radio.


Moving, inspiring, often deeply personal…… It may not be an obvious purchase but it is one you will not regret, an album to which you will regularly return.
Nigel Scholfield, Living Tradition.


'This is no ordinary CD you hold in your hands. This is history, tribute and as you will hear love, affection, defiance and most importantly solidarity between Scotland and Spain and in memory of the contribution of the International Brigades defending Spain from fascism. Scots more than played their part in this noble struggle'.
Written by Cllr. Gordon Munro (Leith Ward Labour) in his piece for the CD.


'When Spain called, Scotland answered. Well over 500 Scottish men and women served in the Spanish Civil War. A third of them remain in the country, sleeping beneath the soil they volunteered to fend from fascism. As the last of that golden red generation dies away, our job is to remember, commemorate and oppose prejudice today. This album is then a souvenir, to be enjoyed and a clarion call to be heeded.'
From the album introduction by Daniel Gray, author of 'Homage to Caledonia', published by Luath Press.
