Song of the Green Linnet

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Emily King
When it comes to Celtic music labels, Green Linnet has always flaunted an immense assortment of riches. What better way, then, to mark its 25-year history than with this sparkling compilation of traditional and modern vocal recordings by the artists it has championed. From "old-timer" songsmiths such as June Tabor and Tommy Sands to more recent standouts like Altan, Capercaillie, and Niamh Parsons, Song of the Green Linnet resonates across the musical timeline of the Celtic world. The crew mostly comprises Irish and Scots balladeers, in the backing company of fellow Celts from Britanny and Galicia as well as their American cousins. Artists like Andy M. Stewart display the...

Barnes & Noble - Emily King
When it comes to Celtic music labels, Green Linnet has always flaunted an immense assortment of riches. What better way, then, to mark its 25-year history than with this sparkling compilation of traditional and modern vocal recordings by the artists it has championed. From "old-timer" songsmiths such as June Tabor and Tommy Sands to more recent standouts like Altan, Capercaillie, and Niamh Parsons, Song of the Green Linnet resonates across the musical timeline of the Celtic world. The crew mostly comprises Irish and Scots balladeers, in the backing company of fellow Celts from Britanny and Galicia as well as their American cousins. Artists like Andy M. Stewart display the range of modern Celtic singers, from rousing, centuries-old fight songs like "Gallant Murray" to the brilliantly funny "The Errant Apprentice." New divas are well represented too, in Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill and her "Gathering Pace," Máirín Fahy of Reeltime, and Altan's Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh. And Mick Moloney pops up just about everywhere: as producer and lead singer on Green Fields of America's serious drinking song "Stick to the Craythur," founder of Cherish the Ladies, and soloist on a proud Irish-American post-Civil War ballad called "Uncle Dan McGann." But then, Celtic music is a very old, very small world.
All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
No American label can boast a Celtic music catalog as rich and deep as Green Linnet's, and the company has demonstrated that over the years with a string of very fine compilations. This one focuses on vocal performances by such world-class solo artists as June Tabor, Niamh Parsons, and Andy M. Stewart, as well as ensembles as diverse as Celt-rockers Wolfstone, Scots harmony masters the Tannahill Weavers, and modern Scots supergroup Capercaillie. The highlights are many: Niamh Parsons is given two slots, which was a wise programming move, her renditions of "Bonny Woodhall" and "Kilnamartyra Exile" just about steal the show. The Green Fields of America deliver a rousing and hilarious ode to homemade whiskey, entitled "Stick to the Craythur," while June Tabor exhibits her growing tendency towards art song with an elaborately arranged medley consisting of "The Water is Wide," "St. Agnes," and "Jeannie and Jamie." Wolfstone turns in an uncharacteristically restrained performance on "Till I Sleep." There's hardly an item in the Green Linnet catalog that isn't worth picking up, and this compilation is a great place to start.
