World Class Musican, Singer,
Writer, and Inventor of
Duncan Wickel is -
in the words of The Boston Globe:
“A considerable talent…as persuasive
in a traditional ballad as he is
country fiddling or ripping through cascading classical flourishes or atonal double stops”.
In 2016, Duncan performed on two consecutive episodes of CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He has toured and recorded with major Folk Aritists including Rising Appalachia, Molly Tuttle, The Duhks, John Doyle, Karan Casey, Ruth Moody, Rushad Eggleston, and many others. Edge Boston wrote:
"[He] proves to be the standout
performer, exploring his instrument
more in-depth than one might have
guessed one could with a fiddle. He
is doing exactly what artists do best,
stretching the boundaries of his sound
through experimentation and play."
Duncan's music has echoed off the walls of Carnagie Hall, The Lincoln and Kennedy Center(S), the Grand Ole Opry and the famed Biblioteca Alexandria in Egypt. he has performed and taught in over 22 countries spanning Every Continent on Earth that is normally inhabited by humans (sorry, Antarctica).
Duncan is currently recording his Debut solo record, Scheduled for release in Winter 2018-2019. He currentley tours with Rising Appalachia, Molly Tuttle, The Stash! Band, and as himself.
“With bowing, plucking, rubbing
and tickling, he could turn the violin
into a whole orchestra.”
