Alan Macpherson (amdmac [at] blueyonder.co.uk), devier of Miss Dow’s Strathspey, writes:

“The composer of the tune ‘Miss Dow’s Fancy’ was John Reid (1869–1942), a famous Angus “Dancie” from Newtyle. He taught step dancing at the early Summer Schools and his Newtyle Orchestra provided the music for the Younger Hall dances. ‘Miss Dow’s Fancy’ was first played by John Reid’s orchestra at a Dundee Branch dance in the Training College Hall on the 14th December, 1934”
