JAMES HARDIE. AKA and see "Jamie Hardie." Scottish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Composed by J. Scott Skinner (1843–1927) for the violin maker James Hardie, a contemporary, brother of Charles Hardie. It was written specifically to follow the strathspey "Miller o' Dervil (The)," although in his manuscript copy [1] Skinner notes that it should follow the reel "Bob Steele" (called "Johnie Steele" in Skinner's Harp and Claymore collection).
