The ever-popular musical duo, Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham, have embarked on Scottish tour this summer and will perform in Wick on August 3.

Aly Bain is regarded by many as Scotland’s supreme traditional-style fiddler. His playing is unique – driving, impassioned and pure – with a vibrant, unmistakable tone that has earned him a following of ardent fans throughout the world.

Event organiser Peter Ferguson from the Beautiful Events Group said: “Having produced the event with Aly and Phil for many years, it’s always a great joy to invite them both back to the area to perform such a fantastic evening’s entertainment.

“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 storytelling. This year’s event is expected to be yet another sell-out.”

Their career over the years has been a whirlwind for them both with endless gigs throughout the world, entertaining audiences for over 30 years.
