Dusty Miller

Tune Title

Only a few of the many fiddlers I have known could play this tune. The version here is fairly close to "The Dusty Miller" that was played live occasionally over WSM, Nashville, Tennessee, years ago. One of the Howe books contains a tune of the same title, with a footnote that it is from a collection of Scottish music published in 1709. Howe's tune is 6/4 tempo, in the key of G, and bears no resemblance to the tune given here. Recorded by Bob Walters in April, 1950
