MISS BROWN'S REEL [1]. AKA and see “Donegal Reel (1),” "Hero (The)," “Una Bhain Ni Chuinneagain,” "Wagoner (1)." American? Scottish?, Reel. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB: AABB (most versions). The tune appears under this title in mid-nineteenth century publications, beginning with Elias Howe's Musician's Companion (1842). It also was copied into the c. 1840’s music manuscript copybook of Setauket, Long Island, painter and fiddler William Sidney Mount [1] (1807-1868), as were other Scottish dance tunes, and it appears in the 1904 music manuscript collection of New Sumner, Maine, fiddler Clinton W. Bisbee (which may have been copied from an 1864 manuscript by Frank Richardson, Mt. Vernon, Maine). Boston publisher Elias Howe (1867) prints dance instructions and includes the melody in his section of Contra Dances. Alan Jabbour notes that the American tune “Wagoner” seems derivative.
