KELSO HOUSE. Scottish, Reel. G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The melody was composed by Abraham Macintosh (b. 1769), son of 'Red Rob' Macintosh, and appears in his Thirty New Strathspey Reels Etc. (Edinburgh, c. 1792). The second part of the melody is very similar to that of "Miss Clementina Stewart."
