Paterson's Manuscript Book

Original Strathspeys and Reels by James Skinner Paterson 1847 - 1906.

James Skinner Paterson, Schoolmaster at Rathven, Banffshire was a fine player and a composer of a number of dance tunes and airs for the fiddle. Many years after his death, his son, James Paterson Junior, presented a manuscript of his father's work to Henderson for publication, with a request that the tunes should be dedicated to fiddle player James Henry of Macduff.
