Having toured together since 1986, Aly and Phil continue to charm audiences with their stunning music, and on-stage charisma that defies description.
Witty and humorous banter sits alongside tunes that tug the heartstrings, and joyous reels and melodies that have feet tapping along. Aly and Phil have won numerous awards including the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – Best Duo Award, and have been nominated in the Scottish Traditional Music Awards for Live Act of the Year. Aly Bain is rightly regarded as Scotland's supreme fiddler - arguably the finest of all time. In 1994 he was awarded an MBE in recognition of his services to music, and in 1999 he received the degree of 'Doctor of Music' from the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. In 2013 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Phil Cunningham is a world famous accordion player and composer, and was nominated in 1996 by The Scotsman as one of 'Scotland's most influential people’. His Highlands and Islands Suite and other collaborations have been a highlight of Glasgow’s Celtic Connections Festivals. In 2002 Phil received an MBE for his contribution to Scottish music. Together they are simply the best traditional musicians you are ever likely to hear. Starts: 7.30pm Tickets: £20, Under 25's £5 Venue: The Apex, Bury St Edmunds This event is promoted by The Apex
