KILWINNING ARCHERS' STRATHSPEY. AKA and see "Hilligsburgh's Strathspey," "Madame Hillisberg's Reel," "Miss Marston's Strathspey," "Miss Norton of Norton's Strathspey." Scottish, Strathspey. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. See note for "Annotation:Kilwinning's Steeple" for an explanation of the title. A note with the tune in editor James Manson's Hamilton's Universal Tune Book, vol. 1 (1844) states "Now printed for the first time," however, this is untrue as the tune enjoyed earlier popularity as the vehicle for the dance Madame Hillisberg. Robert Petrie printed a version of the tune in the early 19th century under the title "Miss Norton of Norton's Strathspey," attributing the composition to James Boick.
