LUCY CAMPBELL . AKA and see "Ball na Grandach" "Grant's Ball (The)," "Miss Lucia Campbell's Strathspey," "Miss Lucy Campbell's Delight." Scottish, Strathspey. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABCD (McGlashan): ABCDEF (Gow). The tune appears earliest in Neil Stewart's 1761 collection, according to John Glen (as a two part tune in A Major), and somewhat later in McGlashan's collection (1780) as "Miss Lucy Campbell's Delight" (in D Major). Cape Breton editor, composer and fiddler Paul Cranford finds that "Lucy Campbell" is a bagpipe setting of an F Major strathspey called "Lady Mary Menzie's Reel (2)" and a D Major strathspey entitled "Pudding Maggie," both of which appear in Bremner's 1757 collection. "Lady Loudon/Lady Louden's Strathspey" is a tune which piper Hamish Moore finds similar to "Lucy Campbell." Cape Breton strathspey versions are similar, but tend to be played in the key of 'A' (see "Lucy Campbell (4)").
