Furness Tradition Presents

Duncan Chisholm

8pm Saturday 2 June 2018

In the Coronation Hall, Ulverston

Admission £14

 

Duncan Chisholm is one of Scotland’s most recognised and accomplished fiddle players and composers. He is accompanied at this concert by Jarlath Henderson (uillean pipes, whistles) Hamish Napier (keys, flute) and guitar player Ali Hutton.

Duncan Chisholm’s playing is a joy to the ear – expressive and nuanced. He can be heart-breakingly tender and moving but equally well stride out with superbly uplifting, up-beat tunes. One of the most accomplished and authentic interpreters of traditional Highland music, his music is elegant, trancelike and tender, laced with strokes of genius. The correlation between music and the natural world lies at the heart of what inspires Duncan.

Duncan plays regularly with Gaelic singing sensation Julie Fowlis, sets the heather on fire with his folk rock band Wolfstone and is much sought after as a composer and accompanist.

Review: Sandwood
March 2018 (Issue 417)

With joyously surging melodies that revel in the transcendent wonder of nature, Chisholm conjures an inspirational vision of something greater than ourselves…… This is spiritual music which empathises deeply with humanity’s continuing search for transcendental beauty and enduring truth.

Review: Sandwood
April / May 2018 (Issue 123)

Surely the smoothest of Scottish fiddlers, Duncan Chisholm has won more awards than most and released a range of recordings…..
Little is straight-forward here – arrangements include a dozen instruments and layer upon layer of harmonies – yet Duncan’s music speaks clearly through the complexity, communicating the special nature of Sandwood.
