The Green Linnet Legacy

Green_Linnet_Logo

I learned about Green Linnet through CD Review magazine in 1991 (Oh boy aren’t I old ?) I love the catalog and the bands featured. That’s where I also discovered Capercaillie,Andy Irvine and Altan.

Green Linnet was an American record label founded in 1973 by Lisa Null and Patrick Sky. It was the taking over of Wendy Newton when it eventually turned to Green Linnet. It’s the most popular label to exclusively release records on the Celtic genre.

Controversy about unpaid royalties eventually turned the label being sued. Thus it was later sold to Compass records. Before downloadable albums and digital music,  people turned to Green Linnet to see what’s hot and new in Celtic music.
