Happy Birthday Aly Bain

The great Shetland fiddle player Aly Bain is 64 today. Here he plays the beautiful slow air Violet Tulloch – Queen of Lerwick, a tribute to another top Shetland musician composed by accordion player Phil Cunningham.

She is said to have remarked, “Well, that’s fine. Now when are you going to write me a bonny tune?”
