ISLE IN THE SKY. American, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Randy Miller believes Taggart's title refers to Scotland's Isle of Skye. Slowed down, the tune is more than reminiscent of O'Carolan's "George Brabazon (2)."

Source for notated version: the 1938 typewritten manuscript of New Hampshire musician John Taggart ("Recollections of a Busy Life", in the possession of the New Hampshire Historical Society, Concord, N.H.) [Miller].
