Sargeant and celebrated cellist David Pereira met five years ago when they shared a room in Calvary hospital. Pereira was seriously ill at the time and had stopped playing cello. He says, “Duncan was practicing all the time – I got to listen a lot. It was clear to me that he was a true musician.

This laid-back musician could really play and tell a unique story at the same time.
This was music to entertain and enjoy. . .
When he let his music speak, he showed a relaxed command of his instrument. . .
A rapid, complex piece with dynamic fast and slow playing revealed a musician totally at home with his guitar.

- Testimonial: Nathan Harris: Mc of Concert "Don't Call Him Ed!" October 2018
Duncan was able to place and nurture the seeds of understanding for what it is like to be human, and in what it is to be human living with a mental health disorder. Duncan was able to master great skills of organisation, dedicating the evening to a respectful display of lived experiences of people with a mental health disorder. Duncan was a credit to himself and was appreciated by the audience members and other acts who had the pleasure of experiencing the night.
Simply put… I thought Duncan played fabulously and I really enjoyed his marvellous musicality.
