Aly Bain MBE (born 15 May 1946 in Lerwick, Shetland, Scotland) is a reknowned Shetland fiddler, learning his instrument from the old-time master Tom Anderson. Considered one of the finest fiddlers in the Scottish tradition, he became nationally prominent as a founding member of Boys of the Lough, with whom he played for 30 years. Aly teamed up with Mike quite soon after moving to the mainland from Shetland. Aly of course was the Shetland fiddler, steeped in that tradition, but also with a liking for other fiddling styles as well. Mike is one of the most versatile musicians ever from Scotland. His main thing would be called "Americana" these days - he’s one of the best blues-harp players on the planet - and his "one man band" sets, using vocals, blues-harp, guitar and drum, are astonishing.

The Boys of the Lough is a Scottish-Irish Celtic music band active since the 1970s. Their first album, called Boys of the Lough (1972) consisted of Aly Bain (fiddle), Cathal McConnell (flute), Dick Gaughan (vocals and guitar) and Robin Morton (bodhran and vocals). Since the 1960s the Forrest Hill Bar in Edinburgh had been a centre for folk singers and instrumentalists.

Aly Bain and Mike Whellans sang Fiddler's Green in 1971 on their Trailer album Aly Bain & Mike Whellans and in 1975 on the Trailer anthology Our Folk Music Heritage. The Clancy Brothers with Louis Killen sang Fiddler's Green in 1972 on their LP Show Me the Way. Archie Fisher and Barbara Dickson sang Fiddler's Green in 1971 on their Decca album Thro' the Recent Years. Filey Fishermen's Harmony Group sang Fiddler's Green on the 1985 anthology Sounds of Yorkshire: A Musical Souvenir of Yorkshire and Humberside
