While in Birmingham, he accompanied many recitals, one with Schubert's Die Schöne Müllerin and Finzi's Till Earth Outwears, another The Nailmaker, by Midlands-based composer Robin Grant, written for the heads of the vocal and keyboard departments at Birmingham Conservatoire.

Before moving to London, Duncan spent a year working in Edinburgh as an organist, and played cello in the Edinburgh University String Orchestra.
