MISS HAY’S REEL . AKA and see "Miss Jessy Stewart's Reel," "Mr. John Shaw Stewart’s (1)," "Mrs. Crawfurd of Donside." Scottish, Reel (cut time). G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The tune has been attributed to Kirkmichael, Perthshire, fiddler and composer Robert Petrie, and appears in his Second Collection of Strathspey Reels and Country Dances (1796), a volume dedicated to his patron and employer, Mrs. Garden of Troup. Niel Gow and Malcolm MacDonald have earlier claims (see alternate titles), however, predating all these printings is John Riddlell of Ayr's Collection of Scots Reels, Minuets & c. for the Violin (1766, p. 25) where the reel can be found as "Mrs. Crawfurd of Donside."
See also the numerous Irish versions of the reel, note for which can be found under "Dublin Lasses (2)."
