Scottish, Strathspey (whole time). G Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The tune has been attributed (under to the "Mr. John Shaw Stewart's" title) to Niel Gow, however it has also been claimed by Malcolm MacDonald (1788) as "Miss Jessy Stewart's Reel" and Robert Petrie as ""Miss Hay's Reel (2)." However, the earliest claim to the tune is by John Riddell of Ayr, who published his version called "Mrs. Crawfurd of Donside" in his Collection of Scots Reels, Minuets & c. for the Violin (1766, p. 25). For more information see "annotation:Sir John Shaw Stewart's Strathspey."
