MRS. DINGWALL OF BROCKLY'S STRATHSPEY. Scottish, Strathspey. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The strathspey may have been composed by Robert Petrie (1767-1830), although he did not claim it (as he other tunes) in his Fourth Collection (c. 1805). The melody was recorded in 1936 on a 78 RPM disc (Celtic 006) by Cape Breton fiddler Dan J. Campbell, one of the first recordings of Cape Breton fiddlers. Paul Stewart Cranford remarks that Campbell’s setting differs somewhat from the Skye Collection setting, and was picked by older Cape Breton players. The first and third measures of the first strain are identical to William Hardie's "New Brig o' Methlick (2) (The)."
