CHARLIE MULVIHILL'S (HORNPIPE) . AKA and see "Paddy Sullivan's." Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Irish sources seem to trace the tune to Munster fiddler Paddy O'Sullivan, through Maire O'Keeffe of Tralee. Patty Furlong states on the notes to her album that she believes the tune was written by Charlie Mulvihill (1917-1975), a Bronx, New York, born concertina and accordion player who learned much of his music from his father, a concertina player from County Limerick.
