Phil Cunningham Returns to Celtic Colours Festival
Just how much fun did Phil Cunningham have at the Celtic Colours festival?

In my last blog I mentioned that the Celtic Colours International Festival will be bringing back some favourite performers from previous years. One of those is the brilliant Scottish accordion player & composer, Phil Cunningham, who first appeared at the festival in 2001.
Phil is well known for his days with the legendary band, Silly Wizard. However, his career since those days has seen him travel the world as a musician and television presenter. The body of his work has been honoured with an Honorary Doctorate Degree from the University of Sterling and he was named a Member of the Order of the British Empire.
