‘Sandwood’ Duncan Chisholm – CMR’s Album of The Week 17th March 2018

‘Sandwood’ Duncan Chisholm – CMR’s Album of The Week 17 March 2018


Duncan Chisholm is one of Scotland’s most recognised and accomplished fiddle players and composers.  Born and brought up near Inverness in the Highlands of Scotland, Duncan has spent most of his life developing his unique musical voice.  Fiddle playing at its best, Duncan’s feather-light handling of dynamics and ornamentation, allied with his pure-distilled tone, lend his characteristic spine-tingling magic to his music.
From his solo career, in Scotland super group Wolfstone, to collaborations with Julie Fowlis and Ivan Dreaver to guest appearances on CD’s with – Donnie Munro / Runrig/ Coast and Beth Neilsen Chapman to name but a few!
Award winner with Album of The year in 2008 with Farrar and 2014 with Live at Celtic Connections as well as musician of the year 2012

“My creative world widens with each passing year and the possibilities for self-expression are limitless.  Enjoy the music.”  Duncan Chisholm.”
