Jessie Hislop


Jessie Hislop, Mintlaw, was one of the sweetest fiddlers I ever heard, and possessed of a marvellous enthusiasm for life and music. Even in her last year or two, she was studying for graded music exam. Ever modest, she nevertheless competed and performed in public in the 60s and 70s, and latterly in the 90s with her brother Jimmy.
