DEVIL'S DREAM [2]. AKA and see "Hornpipe (86)." Scottish, Hornpipe. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AA'BB'. The tune seems to have acquired its "Devil's Dream" title due to the first few bars of the second strain (repeated in the 5th and 6th measures) that are similar to measures in "Devil's Dream (1)". Manchester, England, musician John Roose's mid-19th century untitled "Hornpipe (86)" is a version of the hornpipe in Kerr. The melody appears as "Gillespie's Hornpipe" in O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903). Compare also with O'Neill's "Leinster Hornpipe (The)."
