Captain Keller’s

Scottish Single Reel. Apparently the earliest printing of the tune is in Neil Stewart’s A Collection of the Newest and the Best Reels and Country Dances (1761). This setting is from the Kohler’s repository.

Captain Keller’s, X:2

Combined previous setting with the one from McGoun’s repository (1803).
