This is the final album in fiddler Duncan Chisholm’s Strathglass Trilogy, a musical journey through the glens of his ancestors. For the most part, this is a traditionally styled fiddle album (plenty airs, anyway), while elsewhere there are noticeably contemporary inflections. But who cares? It’s genuinely beautiful.
