Description

In August 2017 the painting 'Scotland's Voices' by Alexander ('Sandy') Moffat, MBE, was unveiled in the Saltire Society Rooms, Edinburgh. The painting imagines some of the influential singers, players and tradition bearers of the Scottish folk revival, assembled round the poet, folk song collector and pivotal figure of that revival, Hamish Henderson, deploying his trusty tape recorder.

Freelance writer Jim Gilchrist, in an article on the painting in the Scotsman Magazine, wrote "..there's a case for a companion 'Scotland's Voices' compilation recording a challenge perhaps, for a label such as Greentrax". The challenge was accepted by Greentrax and Jim Gilchrist agreed to help select the tracks and write the sleeve notes for such a compilation, while Sandy Moffat generously agreed to allow an image of the painting to be used as the front cover of the CD booklet.

The co-operation and enthusiasm of several record labels resulted in the inclusion of all the singers, musicians and poet Hugh MacDiarmid, surrounding Hamish Henderson in the painting, plus tracks by two singers not in the painting but who were contemporaries of those portrayed. Sixteen tracks are included on this outstanding Greentrax compilation.
