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.
