Duncan's fifth studio album, the superb concluding part of his award-winning Strathglass Trilogy, a culmination of 6 years' work.

Duncan has developed his own distinctive style and sound to great effect, and uses his skill and sensitivity to encapsulate the outstanding beauty and splendid isolation of Glen Affric, the ancient clan Chisholm lands in the Highlands of Scotland.

Part 1 of the Trilogy - Farrar - won Album Of The Year 2008 at the Scots Trad Music Awards. Part 2 - Canaich - was nominated in 2010 at the same awards.



Duncan Chisholm (fiddle) with Tony Byrne (acoustic guitar), Phil Cunningham (piano, accordion, whistle), Ross Hamilton (bass, electric guitar), Jarlath Henderson (uillean pipes), Ali Hutton (bodhran, acoustic guitar, whistle), Iain MacFarlane (accordion), Patsy Reid (fiddle, viola) and Allan MacDonald (reading of excerpt from 'To Exiles' by Neil Munro).

"It's journey's end for the outstanding Highland fiddler as he completes his musical peregrination through the landscapes of his homeland, and ancestry, in the final album of the Strathglass Trilogy. His great love and command of the fiddle's wide-ranging abilities carry the contrasting textures and rhythms, augmented by eight other instrumentalists, from the opening old slow air to an equivalent ending, by way of new dance tunes in old traditions, all set with palpable emotion. Carefully made, the album is powerful, modest and moving." Norman Chalmers, Scotland On Sunday.
