Mrs. Mary Grant McInnes—Dandaleith
MRS. MARY GRANT McINNES--DANDALEITH. AKA and see "Highland Skip (1) (The)," "Honorable George Baillie's Strathspey." Scottish, Strathspey. F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by William Marshall (1748-1822). A Scottish fiddler and composer, Marshall is most famous for his many fine strathspeys. Marshall worked for much of his life for the Duke of Gordon as the Steward of his Household, and it is fortunate that the Duke was an enthusiastic supporter and patron of Marshall’s music. Niel Gow (1727-1806) printed the tune as "Honorable George Baillie's Strathspey" in his First Collection (1784) in which it is attributed to Gow. It was also earlier published (c. 1775) as "Highland Skip (1) (The)" by Daniel Dow.
