Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham

Scotland Unwrapped

Having toured together since 1986 to packed concert halls all over the world, legendary Scottish folk duo 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 at the heartstrings, and joyous reels and melodies that have feet tapping along at their ever-popular concerts. The pair have recorded many highly acclaimed albums in their thirty years together including two ‘Best of’ collections and have won the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards – BEST DUO Award and been nominated in the Scottish Traditional Music Awards for ’Live Act of the Year’

Aly was a founder member of the ‘Boys of the Lough’ and his passionate fiddle playing has also found its way onto recordings by the likes of Eddi Reader and Richard Thompson. He was responsible for launching The Transatlantic Sessions TV series in which both he and Phil continue to feature. Accordion player Phil has been named as one of Scotland’s 25 most influential people and his mastery of the instrument has led to him working with the likes of Mark Knopfler, James Taylor, Rosanne Cash and Midge Ure. In March 2023 they recorded along with the Transatlantic Sessions with Eric Clapton at Abbey Road Studios.
