Issue 2174: John Pringle b 1770

John Pringle (Person)
Roger Malton –
Assigned to
Murrough Landon

Probably from the Borders but settled in Edinburgh. Fiddler and composer Published two collections of tunes 1801 and 1802

Some tunes used for SCD and some for step dance, eg Robinslaw, for Highland Ladies (Rene Fidler)

Information on John Pringle is fairly sparse - we dont even know when he died but presumably it was later than 1802, assuming he didn't employ a ghost writer!
