The very least one could say about STUART DUNCAN is that he is the apotheosis of fiddling; the greatest, most creative bluegrass fiddle player ever. Stuart is able to improvise perfect and utterly new ideas that are exactly what the musical moment requires, and he is able to do this at the frighteningly fast tempos required in today’s contemporary bluegrass, with perfect tone and intonation. This combination of perfection and inspiration has not gone unnoticed, and so Stuart has performed on thousands of recording sessions, featuring all of Nashville’s finest players and singers. In addition to his extensive recording and performing career as a fiddler, Stuart also sings, writes songs, and plays mandolin, guitar, and banjo.
Stuart is a two-time Grammy-winner as a member of the Nashville Bluegrass Band, a 1999 Academy of Country Music award winner for “Fiddle Player of the Year,” and a winner of the International Bluegrass Music Association’s “Fiddle Player of the Year” award for seven consecutive years.
