Gordon Duncan, from Pitlochry in Perthshire, a piper, folk musician and composer, died in December 2005 aged 41. He was widely regarded as one of the most skilled and innovative traditional music performers and composers of modern times. While steeped in the art of traditional Highland piping, his approach to his music was always imaginative, fresh and at times radical, to the extent that his influence can be heard within an entire generation of younger musicians across Scotland and well beyond.

The Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust was set up by a group of family members and friends, with the purpose of promoting piping and other forms of traditional music in Scotland, with a particular emphasis on young musicians. On Saturday 29th September 2007, the Trust presented a Concert in the Perth Concert Hall to raise funds for the Trust. The concert was an unqualified success with the capacity audience being treated to a galaxy of talent from the piping and traditional music scenes, gathered together in Gordon’s native Perthshire to celebrate his music, his influence and immense contribution to Scotland’s musical landscape.

The concert was arranged and stage-managed by Ross Ainslie and the musical director was Brian McAlpine of Session A9, both friends of Gordon. It was hosted jointly by Fiona Ritchie of Thistle And Shamrock fame and Gary West, Trust member and presenter of BBC Radio Scotland’s Pipeline. The concert was described by many as ‘a hugely emotional and yet a very happy occasion’ – during the finale there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

Many of the artists were accompanied by The Concert Band, which consisted of Session A9 and other concert musicians, and not forgetting the percussion of ‘young’ Gordon Duncan. 

Profits from this CD will go to The Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust.
