The Duchess Of Hamilton

A strathspey written by John Bowie. I found it in the Cape Breton Fiddlers Collection book from Cranford Publications and I liked this tune so much, I decided to share it here. It says in the book that John Bowie had it with no F naturals, but Cape Bretoners have made it to be that way.
