'Chisholm is a master at reflecting landscapes and geographical features in compositions, both original and borrowed, and his fiddle playing, melodically true with an almost tangible Highland soulfulness, conveys not only a sense of topography but the emotions these places stir in him.'  4**** stars THE HERALD

 

'Chisholm is a master of the pictorial and his playing, with its oaky lower-range tone and keening upper register, consistently conveys a sense of place.' 4**** stars SONGLINES
