Sabhal Mòr Ostaig are very excited to welcome incredibly talented Duncan Chishom to their 2020 Summer Short Courses program!

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 handling of dynamics and ornamentation, allied with his pure-distilled tone, lend a  characteristic spine-tingling magic to his music.

Taught to play by the great Donald Riddell, few can match Duncan’s expressive feel for a Highland air.  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.  

Duncan plays regularly with Julie Fowlis and with his folk rock band Wolfstone.

During this week of tuition Duncan will be focusing on fiddle technique. He will aim to improve you as a player by working on ornamentation, dynamics and good bowing technique whilst working through a variety of different tunes. 

He will teach with music but players must memorise the tunes as the week continues.

Players should be high intermediate to advanced.
