PIPE MAJOR J(OHN) STEWART. Scottish, March (2/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB’CCDD’. Composed by revered piper George S. MacLennan (1883-1927). Christine Martin (2002) says this Highland pipe march has crept into the North East fiddle tradition, albeit rendered with different bowings and style to West Coast Scottish playing.

Printed sources: Martin (Traditional Scottish Fiddling), 2002; p. 119.
