Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham return to Glasgow in Spring 2019 !
What more can you say about these two stellar musicians, now embarking on their 33rd year of working together Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham have established themselves as the epitome of excellence in the world of traditional music. Mike Russell of the Glasgow Herald has described them as “probably the best traditional musicians you are ever likely to hear”.
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.
2017 for Aly and Phil marked many milestones. 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 with the release of a new album.
Two of Scotland’s most acclaimed traditional musicians 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.
