CLARK'S HORNPIPE [1] (Crannciuil ui Cleireac). AKA and see "Jim Clark's Hornpipe," "Ivy Leaf Hornpipe" (American), "Morpeth's Hornpipe." American, Irish(?), Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The first strain is the same as "Morpeth Rant (1)." The title appears in a list of traditional Ozarks Mountains fiddle tunes compiled by folklorist/musicologist Vance Randolph, published in 1954, and it appears the tune had some currency in the Midwest. The melody is un-attributed in O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903), and it appears likely he copied the tune from Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883) or the even earlier Elias Howe Musician's Companion (1843). See note for "Jim Clark's Hornpipe"— Clark was a sometime minstrel, banjoist and banjo manufacturer.
