‘Live at Celtic Connections‘, Duncan’s latest release, has been awarded the ‘Album of the Year 2014′ at a celebrated reception of the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards! Duncan is incredibly proud of this album, his only live release to date, which was recorded at the iconic Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow at a premiere event exclusive to the Celtic Connections festival.
Subsequent to receiving his award, Duncan commented; ”To receive recognition and appreciation for this album makes me deeply happy and receiving this Award is testament to the musicianship, skills and commitment displayed by those working on and off stage during the making of this recording. I am delighted to have received this ‘Album of the Year’ award, thank you.”
The annual awards ceremony, recognising all involved at the heart of Scotland’s rich traditional culture, enjoyed a fabulous presentation of music and song at the event hosted in Inverness. The event is orchestrated by Simon Thoumire and his team at ‘Hands up for Trad‘ who tirelessly work to bring Scotland’s wonderful traditional music in all its forms into the spotlight of media and public attention.
A marvellous honour for Duncan, as we near the end of 2014. Looking ahead – full box office details of Duncan’s forthcoming tour in Feb / March 2015 are available on the ‘Live‘ page of this website.
Enjoy the music….
