Fiddler on the hoof to Kirkcudbright

FANS of traditional music are in for a rare treat next month when Duncan Chisholm’s tour arrives in Kirkcudbright.

Duncan is scheduled to play Kirkcudbright Parish Church on Thursday, October 11.

One of Scotland’s finest fiddle players, Duncan’s new album, Affric, went out on general release September 3 ahead of his October tour.

The album is the concluding part of a unique and inspired idea of producing a trilogy of music recordings influenced by one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Scotland.

It’s a busy time for Duncan, with his new album and solo tour.

He won a Herald Angel for his work on the Edinburgh Fringe this year and is currently touring in England with Heidi Talbot.
