Pre-order Duncan’s brand new album ‘Live at Celtic Connections‘ now!
Copperfish Records are proud to present Duncan’s first live album, recorded at the iconic Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow during the premier world music festival, Celtic Connections. Interweaving material from the Strathglass Trilogy, embodying Duncan’s personal artistic odyssey through the Highland landscapes where his family roots run seven centuries deep. This performance saw Duncan leading a six-piece traditional band, backed by a 20-strong strings and brass ensemble. The impact was such that the crowd couldn’t wait till the end to deliver its first standing ovation, but leapt to their feet halfway through, impelled by an especially thrilling set of reels. Duncan’s traditional accompanists on this live album; Jarlath Henderson (uilleann pipes / whistles), Matheu Watson (guitar), Allan Henderson (piano / fiddle), Martin O’Neill (bodhran) and Ross Hamilton (bass) represent the cream of today’s Scottish folk scene, while the massed strings and brass are led by renowned genre-busting violinist Greg Lawson (BBC SSO / Moishe’s Bagel).

The Strathglass Trilogy
Hear Duncan talk about some of his inspiration for, and the making of The Strathglass Trilogy. Recorded for a feature on BBC Radio 3's Late Junction programme. You will also hear some samples of music from The Trilogy included in this clip .
The culmination of six years work, The Strathglass Trilogy - Farrar, Canaich and Affric, is Duncan’s musical representation of the ancient Chisholm Clan lands.
With such a personal interest in and connection to these Highland glens, Duncan has worked hard to instill great pride and passion into three individual but very much connected musical masterpieces.
This unique and inspired idea of producing a suite of fiddle music recordings, influenced by one of the most beautiful wilderness areas of Scotland, gives a solid representation of Duncan’s ability to get right to the heart of a tune, and communicate the emotion behind it, in what seems a totally natural way.
