Info for Black Cuillin
The brand new album from Duncan Chisholm – ‘Black Cuillin’ draws its inspiration from the mountain wilderness on the Isle of Skye. Richly evocative, ‘Black Cuillin’ tells of a dream journey through this landscape over a day and a night. This is truly the music of the high mountains, the music of the skies and the stars.’
is one of Scotland’s most recognised and accomplished fiddle players and composers; Duncan’s music contains the rarest of chemistries, a glorious combination of invention, tenderness and passion. 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.
Winner of the 2018 Scots Trad Music Awards ‘Album of the Year’ for his album Sandwood, Duncan creates music which is sumptuously layered and awash with dazzling colours, textures and rhythms. It is music that requires no introductions or programme notes to carry you on its journey. The sound may be traditional but this is 21st Century traditional music which is sophisticated, exhilarating and meltingly beautiful.
Duncan’s well-established musical career has taken him throughout the UK, Europe and the USA, both through his solo work and while playing with other musicians and bands.
With such a personal interest in and connection to the Highland landscape that so deeply inspires him, Duncan has worked hard to instil great pride and passion into recording musical masterpieces influenced by Scotland’s wild places.
“My creative world widens with each passing year and the possibilities for self-expression are limitless. Enjoy the music.” (Duncan Chisholm)
