Featuring 19 favorites spanning their 20-year career as one of Scotland’s favorite folk music duos.
Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham have been performing together for the past 2 decades. These purveyors of traditional Scottish music started playing as a duo after Phil made a visit to Aly’s TV show. Since that historic meeting, the two have toured together every year, bringing the music of Scotland to people around the world and never forgetting to bring it to the Highlands and Islands it originated from.
On The Best of Aly & Phil, they’ve chosen their favorites and even thrown in a few nostalgia-laden tracks from those first few performances together on Aly’s TV show. The Best of Aly & Phil showcases Aly’s limber fiddle playing and Phil’s creative accordion with all the energy and charisma associated with their live performances.
"Aly and Phil weave around each other, pushing the tunes to their limits but never putting a finger wrong. Brilliant stuff." - The Living Tradition Magazine
"An elegant take on traditional tunes." - GLOBAL RHYTHM
