MISS PROUD. Scottish, Reel (2/4 time). G Major (Coes, Kerr, McGlashan): A Major (Cranford): D Major (McLachlan). Standard tuning (fiddle). ABCD (Cranford): AABBCCDD (Kerr, McGlashan): AABBCC'DD' (McLachlan). John Glen (1891) finds the earliest appearance of the tune in print in Neil Stewart's 1761 collection, printed in Edinburgh (p. 48). It is a popular pipe tune, reset in the key of ‘A’, on Cape Breton Island, where fiddlers obtained it from bagpipe collections. Winston Fitzgerald (1914-1987) recorded the melody on a 78 RPM recording.
