Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham

Gulbenkian Theatre Canterbury

Friday 3 March 7.45pm

Aly and Phil are two of Scotland’s most loved and best known traditional musicians and they will be bringing their inimitable brand of virtuoso music and comic patter to the Gulbenkian Theatre Canterbury on Friday 3 March.

As one of the founder members of Boys of the Lough, Aly Bain is regarded as Scotland’s supreme traditional style fiddler and was awarded the MBE in recognition of his services to music.

Phil is no less a notable character having been named one of Scotland’s 25 most influential people and also honoured with an MBE. Apart from being a stunning accordion player, he is a sought after composer and musical director for TV, films and theatre.

Aly and Phil were the winners of the ‘Best Duo’ award at 2005 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and will undoubtedly present an evening of folk music not to be missed.
