January 2016 marks just over a decade since Gordon Duncan’s tragic passing, but his inspirational influence still reverberates throughout the Celtic world. Although his instrument was the bagpipes, together with the whistle, and it was in that arena, from pipe bands to solo competition, that his revolutionary impact was first felt, Duncan’s peerless, prolific compositions and arrangements have shared his gifts far more widely. Both these dimensions of his unique legacy, and more, are abundantly exemplified in this commemorative and celebratory line-up, anchored by Duncan’s very first teacher on the chanter, elder brother Ian, and son Gordon Jr.

Appearing tonight are the The Tannahill Weavers who count the man himself among past members, while Galicia’s Susana Seivane reflects his pioneering embrace of wider Celtic traditions. Other featured keepers of the flame include Ross Ainslie, Ali Hutton, Jarlath Henderson, Angus McColl, Allan MacDonald, Stewart Liddell, Duncan Chisholm, Julie Fowlis and the National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland.
