JENNY BOWSER. Scottish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. "Jenny Bowser" was composed by James Scott Skinner (1843-1927). The title was named by Skinner's daughter, Jenny, and his nephew, John Skinner Dalgrano. The tune has currency among Cape Breton musicians, having been recorded in by the Five MacDonald Fiddlers and popularized by fiddler Winston Fitzgerald (1914–1987).
