DONCASTER RACES . Scottish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by Scottish dancing master and musician Duncan MacIntyre (c. 1767-1807), who established a practice in Edinburgh, but who moved to London in the 1790's. It was in the English city that he published his 1794 collection, dedicated to Lady Charlotte Campbell. MacIntosh included another tune in his collection called "Poney Race (1) (The)," which may also be a reference to the Doncaster races, or that he perhaps enjoyed the pastime of horse-racing.
