Celebrated Scottish musicians Phil Cunningham and Aly Bain will be showing off their mercurial talents in Oldmeldrum later this year.

The duo will appear at Meldrum Academy on Saturday, September 6 in a concert organised by the Meldrum Academy Parent Council.

This intimate concert will give you the opportunity to understand the talent that has earned them the title of “Simply the best traditional musicians you are ever likely to hear”.

Aly Bain is Scotland’s supreme traditional style fiddler.

His playing is unique - driving, impassioned and pure - with vibrant, unmistakable tone that has earned him a following of ardent fans throughout the world.

Phil Cunningham is a world famous innovative accordionist, with not simply the fastest fingers in the West but some of the most sensitive ones, too!

He is the man who, in Scotland at least, made the accordion respectable again.

Individually they are masters of what they do, together they are unsurpassed.

With over 25 years of experience performing together their musicality, storytelling and humour make any performance a memorable evening out.

Some school pupils will also be performing on the night.

Tickets for the evening are priced at £15 and the show will start at 7.30pm.

This is Phil Cunningham and Aly Bain’s only concert in Aberdeenshire in September so make sure you don’t miss it and order your tickets now to avoid disappointment.

You can order tickets by calling into the school office, by phoning the school on 01651 871300 or e-mail tickets@meldrumacademy.aberdeenshire.sch.uk.
