CENTENNIAL HORNPIPE [1]. American, Hornpipe (whole time). B Flat major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB: AA'BB' (Craig). The title presumably refers to the United States Centennial of 1876. "As performed by R. Tyson," notes Ryan. "Can be used as a Clog." The tune appears as the fifth of a series of hornpipes set in a medley and recorded first by Charles D'Almaine in 1904, with the same medley recorded again in 1920 by violinist Percy Scott. The medley was transcribed in Québec musician J.A. Boucher's rare 1933 printed collection Le Repertoire du Violoneux."
