REETH Memorial Hall in Swaledale will host Scottish fiddle player and composer Duncan Chisholm on Thursday, August 14.

Recently seen performing to a worldwide audience of several billion as he accompanied Julie Fowlis at the opening ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games, Mr Chisholm's Reeth appearance will feature music from his award-winning Strathglass Trilogy.

Considered one of the most beautiful wilderness areas in Europe, Strathglass is home to the ancient Clan Chisholm and was of great inspiration to Mr Chisholm as he embarked on producing his trilogy of albums.

His musical journey - over a six year period - came to a close with him being nominated in the Musician of the Year category at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2013, and the concluding part of the Strathglass Trilogy, Affric, being included in world music magazine Songlines' Top Ten Best Albums of 2012.

Mr Chisholm will be accompanied by award-winning multi-instrumentalist Matheu Watson.

The concert begins at 8pm, doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets are £12.50 in advance, £14 on the door, under 16s half price and the profits for the refurbishment of the Memorial Hall. Contact John Little 01748-884759 or email: memorialhall@swaledale.org
