SANDY SKINNER. Scottish, Reel (2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. Composed by fiddler-composer and dancing master J. Scott Skinner (1843-1927). The reel is named after his older brother, Alexander Skinner, also a fiddle player and dancing master of renown in Aberdeenshire. Sandy taught James to play, and the two were frequent playing partners. He won the Purse of Sovereigns at Edinburgh in 1856 as well as subsequent prizes and also sponsored his own competitions.
