Kevin Duggan

I read music at Bath University and the Royal College of Music in London, and was taught by Dudley Holroyd, David Ponsford, George Odam, Richard Popplewell and Nicolas Kynaston. Further inspiration came from participating in masterclasses and international competions, and since then I have then followed a career path as a church musician. Time spent living and working in rural surroundings in Norway, Denmark and Great Britain have inspired many of my own compositions, for example Watersmeet, Hymne til Ærø, Kontaktion for Bornholm and The Rock of Strivelyn.  

I have performed widely, in venues ranging from large cathedrals and concerts halls to small village churches, always building a programme to suit the instrument and audience. During the last few years, I have given organ recitals in Scotland, Denmark, Italy, Australasia and the USA. For many years I worked on the Danish island of Bornholm, where I recorded Notes from a Small Island on the Frobenius/Christensen organ in Rønne, and was the driving force behind Skt. Nicolai International Music Summer.

Since 2015, I have been Director of Music of Dunblane Cathedral in Scotland. I am currently Musical Director of Dunblane Cathedral, Organist for RSCM Scottish Voices and an examiner for ABRSM. My recent CD recording, Hymne til Ærø comproses Danish music performed on the superb Flentrop organ in Dunblane Cathedral. Produced by Odradek Records, this recording has received favourable reviews in Choir and Organ, RSCM Church Music Quarterly and in the Danish press. It is available online.
