CREIGHTON'S HORNPIPE. Old-Time, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune was learned by Lotus Dickey and his brother Cyprien from a volume called The Young Violinist's Favorite No. 1 by A.S. Bowman, printed in Chicago in 1891. The brothers bought the collection from a Sears catalog at the time they talked their father into buying them a fiddle. Albert Bowman, born around 1844, was a journeyman violinist, bandleader and composer in Philadelphia and southeastern Pennsylvania.
