A Scottish jig.

Davie’s Brae

I know this tune in F, and I believe it was composed by Jim Johnstone…beyond that, I don’t know any details (including anything about Jim Johnstone). Can anyone help out with more information? I’d like to be able to give credit to the composer, and know more about the tune…was it originally in F, or in D? Thanks!
