Hebcelt Honour Adds Another String To Duncan’s Bow

Duncan Chisholm

Internationally-renowned fiddle player Duncan Chisholm has joined an illustrious line-up of musicians to be recognised by one of Scotland’s leading festivals.

The award-winning artist has been invited into the Hebridean Celtic Festival’s Hall of Fame and has agreed to become an ambassador for the event.

Chisholm, who was nominated as Musician of the Year in the 2013 Radio 2 Folk Awards, made his name in bands including Wolfstone and is now a highly acclaimed solo artist and sought-after composer and accompanist.

He performed at the first HebCelt in 1996 and has made six appearances since, notably with Julie Fowlis in 2010 and 2012.

For HebCelt 2014 Duncan performed as a solo artist, accompanied by musicians representing the cream of the Trad Folk scene – Jarlath Henderson (uilleann pipes/whistles, Tony Byrne (guitar), Davie Dunsmuir (electric guitar), Ross Hamilton (bass) and Martin O’Neill (bodhrán / drums).

Duncan said: “The Hebridean Celtic Festival is a jewel in the Scottish music calendar. I was lucky enough to play the first festival and over the years I have seen it grow into a major international event.

I am incredibly honoured to be invited into the Hall of Fame and will be delighted to represent this acclaimed festival as an ambassador.
