SUTTOR'S DAUGHTER (Nithian a ghreish). AKA - "Sutor's Dochter, The. AKA and see "Wilt Thou be My Dearie," "Shoemaker's Daughter (1)." Scottish, Strathspey (whole time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB (Gow): AABB (McGlashan). “A very Old Tune,” notes Gow, who directs it be played “Slow, with expression.” ‘Suttor’ may be a variant of the Scots word souter, meaning a shoemaker. John Glen (1891) finds the earliest printing of this tune in Alexander McGlashan's 1786 collection. Gow remarks that "Wilt thou be my dearie" is derived from this set.
