Duncan Chisholm Live

Watch this space for live performance information for 2019 to be announced very soon!

Eden Court Theatre Performance:  An Treas Suaile (The Third Wave)

On 27 January 2019, Eden Court Theatre, Inverness will host ‘An Treas Suaile’ (The Third Wave) which Duncan was commissioned to write with fellow musician Julie Fowlis.

Late on New Year’s Eve 1918, HMY Iolaire set sail from Kyle of Lochalsh carrying nearly 300 seamen home to the Isle of Lewis after the war.  The ship was lost at the entrance to Stornoway Harbour and 201 servicemen perished in one of the worst maritime disasters in modern British history.

Written to commemorate 100 years since the disaster, this is a deeply reflective audio-visual piece which has taken 12 months of research and writing.  It will feature newly composed music, traditional material and archive  recordings with onstage visuals and projected images.  The title and central concept refers to John Finlay MacLeod, who leapt overboard from the stricken Iolaire with a rope, and whose bravery saved many lives.

Full box office details are available on our Live page, here.
