Green Linnet was a small independent record label which specialized in celtic music. While the layman may consider this to be just Irish music, it is actually a broader term which encompasses music of many traditions transmitted with the migration of Bronze Age Central Europeans across western Europe and into the British Isles. So beyond Scotland and Wales, there are the Bretons of northern France and the Galicians of northwestern Spain.
Eventually Green Linnet expanded beyond the British Isles into world music with the Xenophile label (the opposite of xenophobe). From there, the possibilities for different kinds of illustration and photography expanded — which then transformed the packaging of celtic music.
Green Linnet was sold in 2006 to the Digital Music Group. In retrospect, the influence of this small and independent label on the modern perception of celtic music is still felt today.
