HIGHLAND JIGGE, A. Scottish, Slip Jig (9/8 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears in the music manuscript collection (No. 51) of piper Robert Miller (1789-1861), born in Perth, who enlisted as a drummer boy in the Breadalbane Fencibles at age nine to begin a long military career. In 1821 he began to compile his "Highland Manuscript" of Scottish pipe music. Miller also was a pipe-maker and made improvements to the design of the instrument.
