CROOKED HORNPIPE. New England, Hornpipe (2/4 or cut time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The composition has been credited to Ralph Page (1903-1985), a New Hampshire born and raised (he was based in Keene for much of his life) dance caller and musician. Page's dance and musical career spanned some fifty-five years and he became the leading authority of his era on New England country dancing, internationally recognized for his accomplishments. Although the melody is included in Page's book as "Crooked Hornpipe", it is an exact copy of "A Favorite Hornpipe" published in Boston by Elias Howe in his First Part of the Musician's Companion (1842).
