John Pringle


Biographical info

Pringle was a fiddler and composer born c.1770, possibly in the Borders and possibly related to Thomas Pringle, with whom Alexander Campbell had dealings in connection with his Borders trip. This book contains 'Mr. Alexr. Campbell's Strathspey'. Henry Farmer notes in GB-Gu copy of the Second Collection that Pringle was an Edinburgh dancing master. Like many other compilers, Pringle often included other musicians' tunes in his collections, without ascription. (Alburger, 130-31)
