CANTY JEANIE MUNROE. AKA - "Canty Jeanie Munro." Scottish, Strathspey. B Flat Major (Cranford/Fitzgerlad): B Major (Skinner). Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by the great Scottish fiddler and composer J. Scott Skinner (1841-1927), who originally set it in the key of B Major (but who gave the direction that it could also be played in B Flat, "but the general effect would be lessened"). Canty means jolly or happy in Scottish dialect, and it was composed in honor of a violinist, Jeanie Thompson. Ms. Thompson married, and Skinner changed the title accordingly, to "Canty Jeanie Munro" [1].
