Adam Rennie Tunes

I’ve just found a tape which I recorded many years ago from Adam Rennie 78s, and it contains some tunes which I have attributed to him:

Kemnay House
Rev Peter Fenton
Kinclaven Bridge
Gan Ainm
Miss Monair of Bruad
Jean Kirkpatrick’s Fancy
Golden Pheasant
Sir Torquil Monro
Elizabeth Donald
Mrs Grace Bowie

Of these only the untitled tune and The Goloden Pheasant isn’t on the list at the page given above. Also, I have a feeling that I found The Golden Pheasant as an earlier jig anyway, but I can’t rmember any details of that. Hang on - I’ve found it in one of the RSCDS books as a dancde, with an accompanying tune under the same name; ther dance is taken from ‘Button and Whittaker 1813’ which long predates Adam Rennie, so scratch that one off the list.

Just looked up my database for Adam Rennie tunes, and there’s one called "Bill Sutherland" (not the same one as composd by J Murdoch Henderson) credited to Rennie on several records in my collection.
