Marquis of Huntley Reel | Bowing Down Home

About this tune

The Gordon family (who held the title Marquis of Huntley for several generations) were great patrons of Scottish fiddlers and their music. In the Scottish peerage, a "marquis" (pronounced "MAR-kwiss") holds a rank between an earl and a duke. Composer Peter Milne (1824-1908) was a mentor of fiddling great James "Scott" Skinner.

Notation for the version of this tune played here by "Old Peter" Chaisson is in The Fiddle Music of Prince Edward Island.
