MARCHIONESS OF QUEENSBURY'S WALTZ. AKA - "Marchioness of Queensbery." Scottish, Waltz (3/8 time). C Major (Carlin): B Flat Major (Gow). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. "Marchioness of Queensbury's Waltz" was printed in fiddler-composer and bandleader Nathaniel Gow's Favorite Dances for 1812, the cover proclaiming: ”As Performed at his Annual Ball in George Street Assembly Rooms the 3rd of March.” The Assembly Rooms in George Street remained Edinburgh's premiere venue for dancing assemblies throughout the first half of the 19th century, although it regularly housed concerts as well.
