BRISK BOB. Scottish, Strathspey (cut tiem). B Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'B. Attributed to Duncan Mackintyre, or Macintyre (c1767-c1807), by Gow. MacIntyre was a dancing master, fiddler and composer who published his own collection in 1794 in London, where he had moved his practice. Several of his tunes were published by the Gows, although whether he had Perthshire origins and thus was acquainted with the family, or whether he cultivated Niel's sons in London (Andrew, John) or Edinburgh (William, Nathaniel) is unknown.
