I couldn’t find it listed under this title, nor did it appear when I searched on the first bar.
Relative of The Keel Row don’t you think?
I’m not sure they are related. I’m thinking they just have titles that sound alike, i.e., the ‘new’ row and the ‘keel’ row- perhaps a reference to a particular street or area of a city or town?

The Keel Row (strathspey)
Jenny Will You Marry Me? (reel)
Both sometimes known as ‘The Devil’s Highland Fling’!
Just wondered if it was a distant relative of Keel Row. It was the second part put me in mind of it a bit.
Never mind. I’m sure Ceolachan will be along shortly to help with identification.
I see what you mean, but not sure.
