Composed by John Lowe

Re: Sir David Davidson Of Cantray

Who is John Lowe? This is a cracking tune. Did he write any more?

Re: Sir David Davidson Of Cantray

"John Lowe, born in Kincardineshire, about 1765. Dancing master at Marykirk. Violin and composer of considerable local repute. His reel "Rachel Rae", in Mr. Troup’s opinion, is his best"
