National treasures Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham bring their trademark blend of great music and good humour to The Hub.
Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham epitomise the best of traditional music, described by producer Mike Russell as ‘probably the best traditional musicians you are ever likely to hear’. Having toured together since 1986 performing to packed concert halls all over the world, the award-winning pair have both received MBEs for their service to music.
Aly Bain is the best-known fiddle player in the Celtic tradition. In 2013 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards. Bain also launched the popular BBC TV series Transatlantic Sessions, in which he and Cunningham appear. Accordion player and composer Phil Cunningham has been named as one of Scotland’s 25 most influential people and has worked with the likes of Mark Knopfler, James Taylor and Rosanne Cash.
so far as their audience was concerned, happiness was fiddle and accordion-shaped
