The Bob Wi’ The One Horn

A version of “The Marquis of Huntly” by William Marshall (see Kerr’s Merry Melodies Bk.1p13).

I believe The Marquis of Huntly is a strathspey. Sean Keane recorded it on “Contentment is Wealth.”

The Marquis of Huntly

Yes, Hiro, Marshall’s “The Marquis of Huntly” is a strathspey (see Kerr’s Merry Melodies Bk.1p13). There are a few tunes with that title; I’m not familiar with Sean Keane’s recording, so I can’t say whether it’s the same.

“The Marquis Of Huntley” ~ a duplication? ~ brought back to here…

Just in case, and because this is more the way I know this melody ~ swung…

I would do the lead-in notes so:
A-part ~ |: G>F |
B-part ~ G>d | ~ both ending with G2 rather than G2 G…

The above ‘duplication’ still exists on site…the link is active…
