Gordon Duncans Tunes "Book Two"

We plan on creating and releasing the second collection of the late great Gordon Duncans compostions, as well as some hidden gems, we are adding traditional compositions that Gordon made his own, this includes Scottish, Irish and Breton compositions.  All proceeds go to the Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust.

About the project

The Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust was set up in 2007 to promote and support traditional music.  We released "Book One" of Gordons compositions in 2007 and have sold more than 5000 copies since launch.  We are looking to launch "Book Two", which will include original compostions and arrangements of traditional compositions that Gordon Duncan made his own.  This includes the full written score for one of his most influencital arrangements, none other than AC/DCs "Thunderstruck".

All proceeds will go to creating and publishing the book and the various limited edition t-shirts and hoodys that we have available,  more information will be added in due course.  We are looking to launch the book official at Celtic Connections January 2016, however we aim to have the books distributed by November 2015.

 

Virtuoso Celtic guitarist, Tony McManus said "Gordon Duncan composed hook lines worthy of the best songwriters in history, improvised as well as any jazz musician, played piobaireachd like a classical soloist- and grounded all his work firmly on a centuries old canon of traditional music he loved. We will benefit from that work for years to come"
