Scotch Mary


The Mary mentioned in the title of this tune could easily be Mary Stuart, aka Mary, Queen of Scots, cousin to Elizabeth I, and rival to the throne of England in the sixteenth century. Mary might also have been a local lass or lady who was known for making a fine bottle of whisky, and was immortalized with a tune by an appreciative fiddler or piper.
