BINNY'S JIG(G). AKA and see "Dusty Miller [6]," "Hey the Dusty Miller." Scottish, Jig. C Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. From the Blaikie Manuscript (usually dated 1692), and from the time before the rise in popularity of the reel and strathspey, when "the English thought of the jig as being the most representative type of Scottish music" (Alburger, 1983). Andrew Blaikie was an engraver from Paisley who had a manuscript of tablature for the viol de gamba. "Binny's Jig" resembles "Dusty Miller" only in the first strain. The English collector Chappell sometimes referred to the tune as "Benny's Jig."
