The fifth concert boasted a fantastic lineup of Scottish talent: folk-rockers Wolfstone closed the show in honour of their former bandmate; Gaelic singerJulie Fowlis made a long-awaited return to Perth with her full band in tow; Capercaillie/Session A9 fiddler Charlie McKerron teamed up with Gordon Duncan protégé Ross Ainslie on pipes and whistles, Tim Edey on guitar and melodeon and guitarist Marc Clement; one of the all-time great Highland pipers, Pipe Major Gordon Walker made a rare Perthshire appearance; the brilliant mandolin and guitar duo Wingin' It performed new music inspired by Gordon Duncan; and BBC Radio Scotland Young Traditional Musician 2011, Orcadian fiddler Kristan Harvey and the world-class ScottishPower Pipe Band completed the mouthwatering musical menu.
As many of you will know Gordon Duncan played with the band for many years and pictured below is a photograph of him in the ScottishPower uniform. It was a great honour for the band to be asked to play at the concert and a fitting tribute to an ex band member of such high regard.
