A Celebration of Duncan Johnstone and His Music

About A Celebration of Duncan Johnstone and His Music

The online concert will showcase Duncan’s music with performances from some of the most well-recognised pipers and musicians on the Scottish music scene.
As an extraordinary piper, teacher and composer, Duncan not only taught many of the top pipers of today, but his work also continues to capture the attention of many other musicians across the traditional music scene. This can be seen in the incredible line-up of performers, including Roddy MacLeod MBE, one of Duncan’s most well-known pupils, and John Dew, the last overall winner of the Duncan Johnstone Memorial Piping Competition in 2019.

The National Piping Centre’s Director of Piping Finlay MacDonald, who was also a pupil of Johnstone, has put together a band with award-winning fiddler Marie Fielding, founding member of Capercaillie and Director of Celtic Connections Donald Shaw and guitarist Steve Byrnes (Kate Rusby Band/Treacherous Orchestra). This top line-up will play an array of Duncan Johnstone’s best-loved tunes throughout the night, showcasing why his music continues to inspire future generations.

Dougie Pincock, former piper with the Battlefield Band and Director of The National Centre of Excellence in Traditional Music, will also perform from his home in Plockton, as well as discussing his years of tutelage with the great man himself.

Alongside the evening showcasing some fantastic music, viewers will also enjoy interviews with students of Duncan and fans of his music worldwide.

This event will premiere online at 7pm on Saturday 10th April, then will be available to watch back for one week, until Saturday 17th April 2021. Tickets can be bought here: www.thepipingcentre.co.uk

The event was recorded at The National Piping Centre in early March in strict adherence to all social distancing and COVID safe guidelines.
