Silly Wizard

Generally considered the world's finest performers of traditional and contemporary Scottish music -- and with good reason. Silly Wizard's music is at once driving and sensitive, powerful and poignant, at times hypnotic, often humorous, with sensitive group interplay and virtuoso-level musicianship, particularly from brothers Phil (accordion, keyboards, whistles, guitar, vocals) and Johnny (fiddle) Cunningham. Their repertoire includes centuries-old instrumental dance music along with traditional and contemporary narrative ballads: tales of joy and woe, of men and women, of time and travel, of love and loss. Silly Wizard is not just another folk music group; they rank with the greatest creators and performers from any country from any time.

Several members of the group, particularly the Cunningham brothers and vocalist Andy Stewart, have made solo and duo recordings and have performed and recorded with other artists, primarily Scottish traditionalists. These recordings are also well worth investigating, but get the Silly Wizard stuff first. ~ Niles J. Frantz, Rovi

Loch Tay Boat Song simple absolute beauty!
The Fishermen's Song is haunting. I hear it and it stays with me for days. I find myself singing it or humming it at the oddest times. Very powerful indeed!
brilliance in a dull land. Blackbird is so forlorn like the digging up of old yew
These lads were regulars featured on The Thistle and Shamrock, an NPR radio show of music from the Celtic lands hosted by Fiona Ritchie. I was blown away by the astonishing performances of the brothers Cunningham. I howled with laughter when I first heard them just to know that human beings were capable of such virtuosity and spirit. My hair stood on end and shivers ran down my spine. Aye mates, twas a fine thing it twas, keeps these old Irish eyes a smilin'.
I also have been a fan for over 25 years and was greatly saddened by Johnny's passing. His solo albums are amazing as well. however, my favorite album by him is one he did with his brother called Against the Storm. it is hard to find now, but definitely worth the search.
I've been a fan of theirs for over 25 years. I was privileged to see them in concert twice. I also was able to see Johnny Cunningham in a solo concert before he passed away.
They are still the best and the most capable of bring tear to mine eyes.
While there's breath in my body...they' r e the ones I love still...

I discovered Silly Wizard from the cd collection at my local public library over 10 years ago. I still love them!

I agree with michaels450- i'd like to have some bothy band on pandora
Also include "Battlefield Band"
Definitely need more music by Silly Wizard, Andy M. Stewart, and the Cunningham Bros.
i agree the best is not here. Also how about a few other close companions like planxty and the Bothy Band both missing from Pandora

We definitely need a larger selection of this group's music

Why didn't Silly Wizard's music come up when I searched for Andy Stewart or The Queen of Argylle? You chose Tom Petty and Stone Cold! Definitely not the Cetic music for which I was in the mood.
Get more of their albums! They have so many powerful songs, like Donald McGillavry or The Queen of Argyll. And get Andy Stewarts solo album, "at it again", especially the song "Haughs of Cromdale".
