Watch the Fingers Move

I was YouTubing earlier this evening and I stumbled across a video I saw first a few month ago.  The tunes in the video aren’t among the best Scottish tunes but the musicianship is of absolutely the highest order.

Enjoy the late Johnny Cunningham (fiddle) and his younger brother Phil on the box.  I’m sure Phil Cunningham will make my Sunday Morning Coffee show but for tonight sit back and try to follow the fingers.



  1. Wow! indeed, very skillful. Thanks for sharing that one :-)

  2. WOW! I'm truly impressed.Sometimes I wish I could play this type of music instead of J.S.Bach. It's so colourful, and requires so much dexterity. A fast tempo, it was!

  3. CP and Claudia

    I wish I could play ANY music.

    Phil is well-known in his own right as a fiddler, whistler-player and composer but also for his shows with the Shetland fiddler Aly Bain.

    I have written words to two of Phil's tunes but they're my private writings. At some point I might try to get them published and recorded if they were any good ... which, of course, they won't be.
