Tune of the Day: Miss Lyall

Traditional Scottish strathspey

Popular both in Scotland and in Ireland, this strathspey started appearing in music collections in the early 19th century. One of its earliest appearances is in John Hall's A Selection of Strathspeys Reels, Waltzes & Irish Jigs, dated circa 1818.

In County Donegal, Ireland, the tune is set as a highland and known as “The Cat that Kittled in Jamie's Wig”. This title, referring to a cat that had a litter of kittens in someone's wig, appears to have been an anti-Jacobite reference.
