Duncan’s 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).
