Duncan McFarlane (solo)

'Duncan has an obvious feel for the tradition and a deep-rooted belief that it has a place in the current folk scene, aspects which he puts across with lively showmanship. His own songs show a canny grasp of, and response to, the tradition, while his intrinsic seriousness of intent and approach is often laced with a healthy irreverence
that happens to be hugely entertaining.
(Living Tradition)
Classy English Folk Guitar, eminently listenable vocals and great songs, both traditional and contemporary. (Mike Raven)
Duncan's a punchy guitarist in the 'English folk' style and offers a set about equally split between his own songs, other people's and traditional. (fRoots)
Stylistically, Duncan's guitar technique falls very much within the Carthy/Nic Jones school, with a strong rhythmic impetus that's infectious in the extreme. His singing has real character too
. (Traditional Music Maker)

The Duncan McFarlane Band (electric)
‘Absolutely great; really powerful playing and singing.’ – Mike Harding
The world can always use more good English folk-rock and this is loud, fast music, based on the rhythms of
English country dance music with sharp-edged electric guitar leads, electric fiddle, and gutsy, gritty singing.
Essentially solid, energetic English electric folk, full of pumping riffs and loads of energy. It’s nice to find a
folk-rock band that understands both folk AND rock and knows how to draw on one without diluting the other.
'Robust folk-rock - reels, jigs and stout songs, well-executed and infectiously lively.'

(quotes from fRoots; Yorkshire Evening Post; Dirty Linen (USA); Shreds & Patches; Tykes News; Stirrings)

The Duncan McFarlane Band (Duo or Trio)
Classy English Folk, eminently listenable vocals and great songs, both traditional and contemporary with a strong rhythmic impetus that's infectious in the extreme. Duncan's a punchy guitarist in the 'English folk' style and offers a set about equally split between his own songs, other people's and traditional.
Duncan has an obvious feel for the tradition and a deep-rooted belief that it has a place in the current folk scene, aspects which he puts across with lively showmanship. His own songs show a canny grasp of, and response to, the tradition, while his intrinsic seriousness of intent and approach is often laced with a healthy irreverence that happens to be hugely entertaining.
His acoustic duo features Anne Brivonese on fiddle and trio also includes Steve Fairholme on melodeon.
