Tune of the Day: Dumfries House

Traditional Scottish jig

This jig was composed by John Riddell (1718–95), a blind amateur fiddle-composer of Ayr, and first published in his c. 1776 A Collection of Scots Reels, Minuets, etc.. Riddell was the composer of several popular airs, and an excellent fiddle player in his day, so much so that he was never without a pupil or an apprentice.
