MISS WILLIAMSON'S REEL. Scottish (?), Reel. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune was also entered into the c. 1780-1804 music manuscript collection of musician John Fife, a fiddler and/or fifer who may have been from Perthshire, and who may have made entries at sea (there are references to battles in the Carribean and Mediteranean Seas in the mss.).
