On Sunday 28 November, Ciaran Dorris’ special guest ‘castaway’ is Ian Green, managing director of Scotland’s favourite record company, Greentrax Recordings.
Ian Green’s autobiography ‘From Fuzz To Folk – Trax Of My Life’ is now completed and will be published in November 2010 by the respected Edinburgh publisher Luath Press. The official release date will be January 2011 which is also the 25th anniversary of Greentrax Recordings. Ian says, ‘I found it not only cathartic but also a fascinating journey of rediscovery’.
Many awards have been bestowed on Greentrax Recordings and Ian himself, including the Hamish Henderson Award For Services To Traditional Music, plus entry into The Hall of Fame at the Scots Trad Awards culminating with an Honorary Doctorate from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Ian and the work of Greentrax was also the subject of an STV documentary.
