JENNY LATIN. Scottish, Reel (cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (McGlashan): AAB (Davies): AABB' (Kerr). Alexander McGlashan (c. 1786) was the first to attribute the composition of this tune to the Scottish fiddler and composer William Marshall, however, it does not appear in any of Marshall's own collections. Later crediting of the tune to Marshall appear to be copies of McGlashan's attribution. The title "Jenny Latin" probably derives from the tune's vague resemblance to "Jackie Layton/Jack Lattin."
