MISS SUSAN ELLIOT. AKA - "Miss Susan Elliot's Reel." Scottish, Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed by Scottish dancing master and musician Duncan MacIntyre (c. 1767-1807), who established a practice in Edinburgh, but who moved to London in the 1790's. It was in the English city that he published his 1794 collection, dedicated to Lady Charlotte Campbell. The title honors possibly the same person as another in MacIntyre's collection, “Miss Elliot’s Favourite”.
