MACKENZIE FRASER. Scottish, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. Composed by wikipedia:James_Scott_Skinner (1843-1927) in honor of William MacKenzie Fraser, one time Honorary Treasurer of the London Inverness-shire Association. Skinner recorded the tune in a medley with his "Miller o' Hirn (The)" and "Auld Wheel" in London in 1905. "MacKenzie Fraser" was listed as "trad." on the record label. He recorded it again in London in 1914 (played in a medley with "Auld Wheel," "Spinning Wheel (1) (The)," "Bride's Reel (1) (The)," and "Fairy Dance"). The medley (minus "Fairy Dance") was transformed by County Donegal fiddler John Doherty (1900-1980) into his multi-part reel "Flood on the Holm."
