The long-anticipated Book Two of the legendary piper Gordon Duncan‘s tune collection of marches, polkas, jigs, piobaireachd, slow airs, dances and reels.

Featuring the infamous and ever-popular arrangement of AC/DC‘s Thunderstruck amongst the collection, this is a must have for all pipers. The book brings the last of Gordon’s compositions together, and some of his more iconic arrangements of other traditional tunes Gordon made his own.

The Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust was set up in 2007 to promote and support traditional music. Book One of Gordon’s compositions was released then and has sold more than 5000 copies since launch. The Trust decided a second collection of Gordon’s missing tunes had to follow.

“Gordon Duncan composed book lines worthy of the best songwriters in history, improvised as well as any jazz musician, played piobaireachd like a classical soloist and grounded all his work firmly on a centuries-old canon of traditional music he loved. We will benefit from that work for years to come…”
(Tony McManus, virtuoso Celtic guitarist)

“We hope you’ll enjoy this collection of tunes and continue to celebrate Gordon’s music for many years to come…”
(Ian Duncan - Chairman, The Gordon Duncan Memorial Trust)

Gordon Duncan’s Tunes Book One is also available.
