Lively Shetland duo, Aly and Phil – Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham, will be performing in a concert once more sponsored by Capital Document Solutions.
On Saturday 25th November, the fiddle and accordion/keyboard players will be taking to the stage to lead a wee party for St Andrew’s Day. The concert will be held at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and promises to be a vibrant night.
The pair have toured and recorded together since 1988 and to date they have recorded four albums, released on Aly’s own record label Whirlie Records.
The Royal Scottish National Orchestra (RSNO) event will also feature conductor (and accomplished accordion player) John Logan. The National Youth Pipe Band of Scotland, a non-competing cutting edge performance pipe band for 10-25 year olds in Scotland, will also perform.
Tom Flockhart, Founder & Managing Director of Capital said:
“Phil and Aly are two of Scotland’s most recognisable musicians. They have brought joy to many celebrations over the years. We’re thrilled to continue to have the opportunity to support the RSNO. It’s a partnership which has continued to benefit both parties over the years.”
Recognised formally as The Scottish Opera, the RSNO is now one of Europe’s leading symphony orchestras. Formed in 1891, the company became the Scottish National Orchestra in 1950, and was awarded Royal Patronage in 1991.
Throughout its 126 years, the orchestra has played an important part in Scotland’s musical life. This includes performing at the opening ceremony of the Scottish Parliament building in 2004.
So raise a dram for St Andrew’s Days, and get ready for a night of jigs, reels, jokes and japes!
