About Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham

What more can you say about these two stellar musicians, now embarking on their 31st year of working together Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham have established themselves as the epitome of excellence in the world of traditional music.

With their musical magic and quick-witted humour they will pull your emotional strings one moment and have you falling off the seat with laughter the next.
2016 saw Aly and Phil mark many milestones. It was their 30th year of working together, Aly turned 70 (hard to believe!) in May and Phil also celebrated 40 years as a professional musician.

To celebrate they plan some surprises on their annual trip round Scotland including a nostalgic backdrop of images from all those years, and the release of a new album.

Two of Scotland’s most acclaimed traditional musicians, Aly & Phil have been delighting audiences across Scotland with their masterful, versatile and amusing performances and leading us in the dance on BBC’s live Hogmanay show for over two decades. Oct 2013 saw the legendary folk duo receive the The Sunday Mail Great Scot Award’s ‘Lifetime Achievement’ Award.

They have become a national institution with their incomparable mastery of fiddle and accordion, bringing excellence in traditional music to venues across the country. Individually they pursue other ventures in performance, television and education. It is when they tour together that they truly shine with over quarter of a century of well-honed skills and hilarious banter delighting audiences everywhere.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
