The Treacherous Orchestra
Andy M Stewart Vale of Atholl Pipe Band
John McSherrt & Francise McIlduff
A National Treasure III once more brought musicians together from all over Scotland and well beyond to honour Gordon’s massive influence and to raise funds for the Trust set up in his name.
This year thehouse band was the brilliant young Treacherous Orchestra, with four of their members – fiddlers Innes Watson and Adam Sutherland, bassist Duncan Lyall and flute/whistles player Kevin O’Neill – premiering specially commissioned “Tunes For Gordon”.
We were immensely pleased to welcome two of Scotland’s greatest ever traditional singers as our special guests – Karen Matheson of Capercaillie and Perthshire’s own Andy M Stewart, of Silly Wizard fame.
The superb Vale Of Atholl Pipe Band joined us for the first time and the rest of the piping line-up comprises the incendiary Irish duo of John McSherry and Francis McIlduff; the Galician Gordon Duncan, Edelmiro Fernandez and Gordon’s nephew Alex Duncan.
