Sandwood, the much-anticipated new album from Duncan Chisholm will
go on general release on Friday 27 April 2018
Subsequent to the success of his exquisite Strathglass Trilogy Duncan Chisholm has extensively performed and toured his music in venues and festivals throughout the U.K, Europe and North America. Having spent several years sharing his artistic representation of these majestic Highland Glens to the wider world, Duncan has embarked on a new journey, a pilgrimage in search of the next inspirational wild
Deeply moved and motivated by the experience of trekking wild in the North West Highlands, Duncan Chisholm has crafted beautiful soundscapes inspired by the light and colour of the changing seasons. In this music you hear the sound of nature and the sound of the magnificent land around him, musical portraits of a world untouched by human hand.
Sandwood, the new album, chronicles Duncan’s solivagant journey through Sutherland to this bay on the edge of the Atlantic. Two years of imagining, writing and production have resulted in Duncan capturing this wild place musically. In doing so Duncan has created an epic multi-layered cinematic masterpiece with an imagined narrative that joyously revels in the transcendent wonder of nature.
This is new music, which is true to its tradition. Track arrangements include an array of instruments and layer upon layer of harmonies, yet still Duncan’s musical voice is clear.
Duncan Chisholm is one of the most accomplished and authentic interpreters of traditional Highland fiddle music. His music is elegant, trancelike and tender, laced with strokes of genius. The natural elements that make the Highlands of Scotland such a unique canvas are the force and motivation behind his music
