MISS JANE STEWART('S STRATHSPEY--PITTYVAICH) [1]. AKA and see "Johnny Pringle" (Gow's title), "Miss Jane Campbell's Strathspey," "Miss Burnet's Reel." Scottish, Strathspey. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Biography:William Marshall complained in his 1822 collection: "Mr. Gow and others have Published this tune, but have not mentioned Mr. Marshall as the Composer, and also changed its original name to Johnny Pringle (Marshall)." The strathspey was published by Nathaniel Gow as "Johnny Pringle" in his Repository, Part Third, 1806; by fiddler-composer John Pringle himself as "Miss Jane Campbell's Strathspey" about 1801; and originally by Marshall as "Miss Burnet's Reel" in his First Collection of 1781 (it was later reprinted and re-titled by him as "Miss Jane Stewart's Pittyvaich" in his 1822 collection). Miss Jane was one of the large family of Stewarts on Pittyvaich Farm, according to Moyra Cowie (The Life and Times of William Marshall), who had vacated the Farm at Keithmore, which the Marshall family then moved into. A long friendship developed between the families.
