In 1988, two members from two of Scotland’s leading bands, “The Boys of The Lough” and “Silly Wizard”, came together to work on a television series.
You could say “the rest is history”.
Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham enjoyed performing together so much that they decided to have a small tour that year. That was beginning of a remarkable working relationship and friendship that has endured and continued to thrive taking them all over the world. 30 years on, they are filling not only small village halls, but all of our major performance venues. In these years their dedication to their music has earned them both the title of Dr and the honour of an MBE.
As Aly & Phil have been performing together now for 30 years, they are taking to the road to celebrate the occasion with their special 30th anniversary tour and also to celebrate Aly’s 70th Birthday! Join us at a venue near you for what is set to be a fine evening of enchanting music, hysterical tales and anecdotes and an night of sheer pleasure!
Any Aly & Phil show is one not to be missed
