March 21, 2012
Violinist, composer and multi-instrumentalist Duncan Wickel is a “Considerable talent…[he] is as persuasive in a traditional Irish ballad as he is country fiddling or ripping through cascading classical flourishes or atonal double stops” –The Boston Globe. A former native of Asheville, NC, now living and working in the heart of Boston’s thriving music scene, Duncan’s reputation has been growing quickly on a national level as a wildly diverse and highly accomplished improviser, composer and technician on the violin. He is sought after for his stylistic mastery of Jazz, Irish, Old Time and Bluegrass music, captivating audiences and fellow musicians with his creativity as well as the subtle authenticity and chameleon-like ease in which he blends and changes styles.
