Back to Miss Campbell's Jig
MISS CAMPBELL'S JIG. Scottish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was also entered into the c. 1780-1804 music manuscript collection of John Fife, a fiddler or fifer perhaps from Perthshire who may also have made entries at sea (there are references to battles in the Caribbean and Mediterranean Seas). It is also contained in the large 1840 music manuscript collection of multi-instrumentalist John Rook, of Waverton, near Wigton, Cumbria.
