CUTTY'S WEDDING [2]. Scottish, Irish; Strathspey or Reel. A Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB (Milne): AABB (Galwey). Honoria Galway (correctly) thought the tune's provenance might have been Scotch ("Scotch Reel?"). The melody is a simplified version of "Cutty's Wedding (1)."

Printed sources: Galwey (Old Irish Croonauns), 1910; No. 2, p. 1. Milne (Middleton’s Selection of Strathspeys, Reels &c. for the Violin), 1870; p. 4.
