SHADDIE, THE. AKA – “Shaddle,” “Miss Ray.” English, Jig (6/8 time). F Major (Skillern & Challoner): D Major (Cahusac). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody (in the key of B flat) is given as “Shaddie,” with “Miss Ray” as an alternate title, in the 1820 music manuscript collection of Frank Johnson, inscribed “Presented to Mrs. A. Rush, by Frank Johnson, a Black Musician” [Historical Society of Philadelphia]. The same title and alternate title appear with dance figures in dancing master Thomas Wilson’s Treasures of the Terpsichore, or Companion for the Ballroom (London, 1809).
