MISS HAY’S REEL . AKA and see "Miss Jessy Stewart's Reel," "Mr. John Shaw Stewart’s (1)." Scottish, Reel. G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The tune has been attributed to Kirkmichael, Perthshire, fiddler and composer Robert Petrie.

However, Niel Gow and Malcolm MacDonald have earlier claims (see alternate titles).
