Based in the “bluegrass country” region around Nashville, Tennessee, Craig Duncan & Friends present an entertaining program of traditional Tennessee and authentic bluegrass music for audiences of all ages. 


The group, which features Duncan on fiddle and mandolin, Billy Smith and Kris Ballinger on guitars, Mark Barnett on banjo and Dale Ballinger on bass, is based on years of friendship and making music together in a variety of overlapping configurations.

 

Bandleader Craig Duncan, a member of the North American Fiddler’s Hall of Fame and Who’s Who in Music & Musicians, has been the featured instrumentalist on more than 70 albums with sales in excess of $5 million. His music has been heard on television shows like Malcolm in the Middle and The Oprah Winfrey Show, as well as on A&E, Biography, BET, PBS, History and other cable networks.
Recognized internationally as the author of instructional books for Mel Bay Publications, Craig has produced numerous recordings for the gift shop market in various musical styles. He doesn’t just play a song; he energetically delivers the heart and soul of bluegrass music in all its hard-driving glory to spellbound audiences with unique flair and pizzazz.


In addition to the books and a successful series of hammer dulcimer-based instrumental recordings, Craig now fronts bluegrass, country, jazz, Celtic and classical ensembles for a variety of events—locally and abroad.

 

This may be the last trip that the band will make to the UK.  Only one performance is scheduled at the Nairn Community Hall on the 23rd July at 8pm as the band are booked up throughout Scotland.
