Perth Concert Hall - Horsecross Arts Ltd Perth
Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham are a real treat to see together and are heading for Perth Concert Hall!
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. Their first tour to 8 small venues across Scotland was a resounding success, and the beginning of a remarkable working relationship and friendship that has endured and continued to thrive taking them all over the world. 31 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.
In 2016 they celebrated their 30th anniversary. Attending an Aly and Phil show is an unforgettable experience. Not only have they been described as 'the best traditional musicians you are ever likely to hear' they also have a reputation for their irrepressible sense of fun and quick-witted story telling.
Tickets: £25; concessions £22.50 (inc £1.50 booking fee per ticket)
