"Miss Maria Stewart’s Jig"

Also played in the key of F (b)…Good ol’ Jimmy Shand used to squeeze this one out for the dancers…and some have attributed this tune to his inspiration… Here’s one of his jig sets with it in it:

4.) The Stone Court / Mrs. Jimmy Shand’s Fancy / Miss Maria Stewart

From the CD: "Jimmy Shand and His Band: 20 Golden Tracks"

The other two jigs listed above are not yet on site…

Re: Miss Maria Stewart

The first part is practically identical to the first part of "Leith Assembly" (Hamilton’s Universal Tune-Book, Volume 1, page 165)
