25 Years of Superlative Scottish music.
Scottish fiddler Chris Duncan and pianist Catherine
Strutt have been exploring and performing the traditional fiddle music of Scotland
since 1990 together. Specialising in the Scottish music idiom, the ARIA and multi award winning, Newcastle
based duo, have performed internationally and nationally at festivals,
concerts, private functions, and countless Scottish Country dances and Balls. In recent years as ceilidhs have become more and more popular, they have established for themselves a strong reputation as Australia's leading Scottish Wedding ceilidh "band" and are the preferred choice for Scottish Wedding Ceilidhs.
Their first album Fyvie’s Embrace recorded and produced by ABC Classics has sold over fourteen thousand copies and when
first released was received with much critical acclaim earning them the Best World Music Album ARIA in
2000. Their much anticipated second album with ABC Classics, The Red House was released September
2006 and was awarded the National Film
and Sound Archive Best Folk
Recording for 2007. In 2015, their Silver Anniversary year, they released their third recording, Carriages at Midnight, a collection of dance music for Scottish Country Dance.
Chris and Catherine’s superlative
musicianship bring to life the sensitive slow airs, the swing of the jig and
groove of the reel, leaving audiences and dancers alike captivated, earning them much respect as Australia’s
foremost Scottish music duo.
