PETER MILNE. Scottish, Strathspey (whole time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by fiddler-composer and dancing master J. Scott Skinner (1843-1927) in honor of his mentor and playing partner, Peter Milne (1804-1908),

"The Tarland Minstrel", also a fiddler-composer.
Peter Milne
Skinner's strathspey is charming in its evocation of Milne stroking and talking to his cat.
