Almost a whole decade since his first visit, C Duncan returns to RMH for a special solo show on Thursday 21st March!

Born Christopher Duncan, he is a Scottish composer and multi-instrumentalist whose classical music upbringing seeps into his sophisticated, billowy indie pop creations. Emerging in 2015 with the Mercury Prize-nominated Architect, his lush bedroom pop became more expansive and elaborately produced on subsequent outings like Health (2019) and Alluvium (2022)…

“Introspective dreampop with outward-gazing pastoral indie… elegant, thought-provoking and comforting”The Quietus

Born and raised in Glasgow by two classical musicians, Chris Duncan studied piano and viola before taking up guitar, bass, and drums in his teens, eventually studying music composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. After graduating he began work on his first album, writing and recording everything from home. His Mercury nominated debut ‘Architect’ was released in 2015 and after a spell of touring the UK and Europe he returned to his home studio and began work on his Twilight Zone inspired second album ‘The Midnight Sun’ which was released in 2016 and shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year. He supported Elbow on their UK and North American tour which led him to record his third album ‘Health’ at their studio in Salford with Craig Potter, which was released in 2019 and also shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year. Now back in his “new and improved” home studio, Chris recorded and released his fourth album ‘Alluvium’ in May 2022 on Bella Union. He is also a keen artist, and paints all his own album artwork.
