Duncan Chisholm
Duncan Chisholm is one of Scotland’s most recognised and accomplished fiddle players and composers. Winner of the MG Alba Scots Trad Music Awards Composer of the Year and Album of the Year 2018, Duncan’s latest album Sandwood has been widely appreciated. The natural elements that make the Highlands of Scotland such a unique canvas are the force and motivation behind his music. Inspirational wild places and the correlation between music and the natural world drives Duncan to craft beautiful soundscapes full of light and colour. This is new music which is true to its tradition.

With tour dates scheduled in Denmark and Australia in Spring 2019, Duncan is delighted to return to home soil and perform as part of the HebCelt programme 2019.


Hamish Napier, Innes Watson and Conal McDonagh will join Duncan for this concert.

Penguin Eggs: “….. the indisputable eminent fiddle composer of his generation.”
