It’s evening in Canada as I write this. I’m sitting at my desk overlooking the park as the sun sets, a candle burning in the window, listening to Duncan Chisholm‘s CD ‘Live at Celtic Connections’ and specifically to his tune The Farley Bridge.
If I remember correctly, the first time I heard him perform this tune was at Caputh Church in Perthshire during Dougie MacLean‘s Perthshire Amber Festival in 2016.
I can’t begin to describe how magical a performance it was – the music, setting and location were sublime.
During the early months of Covid, Duncan Chisholm posted a tune every day on his Twitter Feed. In a time of uncertainty, it was a wonderful way to start the day.
Please – please – check out his music. You won’t be disappointed. It is inspiring and truly – truly – beautiful.
