RealTracks Artist Bio: Glen Duncan

Although best known as a fiddler, award-winning Bluegrass player Glen Duncan started out on guitar and lap guitar at the age of seven. While still a youth, he heard a recording of Earl Scruggs′ "Foggy Mountain Breakdown" that inspired him to take up the banjo and launched him on his Bluegrass career. In these RealTracks recordings, Glen shows that he could just as easily have won fame as a banjo player.

During his teenage years Glen branched out into Rock ′n′ Roll as a piano and organ. His was lured away from R&R when he heard Bill Monroe′s fiddler, Kenny Baker, and saw Vassar Clements on television around the same time. The young prodigy picked up the fiddle and has never looked back.

Glen won the 2001 Best Country Instrumental Grammy for his recording of Foggy Mountain Breakdown with Earl Scruggs, and the list of other artists he has played with includes Bill Monroe, Shania Twain, John Denver, George Strait, Mark Knopfler, Reba McEntire, George Jones, Faith Hill, Merle Haggard, Loretta Lynn, Randy Travis, Dolly Parton, Tim McGraw, The Statler Brothers, The Oak Ridge Boys, Jimmy Davis, Hank Snow, Kenny Chesney, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Vince Gill, Patty Loveless, and literally scores of others. On television, he has been featured on all of the major late-night talk shows, has had hundreds of appearances on The Grand Ole Opry, and many more on Austin City Limits.

As well as receiving a Grammy, Glen has been nominated for two other Grammy awards, has been the SPGMA Fiddler of the Year four times, and was nominated as CMA Musician of the Year award in 2002. He has won Song of the Year twice at the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA)Awards, won the IBMA Recorded Event of the Year twice and the SPGMA Album of the Year.
