This is a Scottish reel composed by James Walker which is popular in Cape Breton. It is the third tune in Winston “Scotty” Fitzgerald’s famous set “Miss Hutton / The Braes of Tullimet / Miss Johnson of Pitworth”. The tune often appears in conjunction with “Miss Hutton” in other sets as well. Versions of this reel differ slightly, but I have based my transcription on Fitzgerald’s version, which I assume to be the basis for most subsequent recorded versions.
