Dubbed ‘the new sound of traditional Scotland’, fiddle player Duncan Chisholm plays authentic Highland music accompanied by a selection of Scottish artists.
Born in Inverness, Duncan Chisholm is widely considered one of the most authentic interpreters of traditional Highland music, with fiddle-playing inspired by Scotland’s dramatic landscapes and weather. He has released several solo albums, including the stunning Sandwood in 2018, named after a remote bay in Sutherland on Scotland’s far northwest coast. His 2012 album Affric was longlisted for the Scottish Album of the Year Award and took its influence from the majestic wilderness of Glen Affric, near Loch Ness.
Richly toned and unashamedly heart-tugging slow airs, frequently imbued with a powerful sense of place
