D. MORRISON'S SEVEN THISTLES. Scottish, March (4/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). Composed by the great Scottish violinist/fiddler wikipedia:James_Scott_Skinner (1843-1927). Skinner was born in Banchory and made a career as a dancing master, composer and performer both throughout Britain in in American tours. He composed some 600 tunes and is especially noted for his strathspey compositions and playing (in a rather classical style), earning the sobriquet "The Strathspey King." He was also a keen gardener in his spare time, and was impressed by his gardener friend Dee Morrison's magnificent thistle display. Skinner remarked that he would compose a tune in honor of the display and call it "Dee Morrison's Seven Thistles." Sometimes 'D.' in the title is given as 'Dr.' but this is erroneous.
