GALWAY HORNPIPE [1]. AKA and see "Baldheaded Bachelor (The)," "Dan Lowry's," "McDermott's Hornpipe (4)," "McDermott's No. 2," "McDanaugh's Clog," "McDonaugh's Clog." Irish, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (Allan, Bain, Cranitch, Mallinson): AABB' (Mulvihill). The tune appears as the first two parts of a four-part hornpipe recorded under the title "McDermott's" in New York in 1922 by County Sligo fiddler Michael Coleman (see "McDermott's No. 2" for the second two parts). Perhaps due to the influence of the Coleman recording, the hornpipe has been absorbed into contra dance and Cape Breton repertoire. Coleman recorded the tune for OKeh records, an unusual issue for the company who specialized in jazz and popular music (as well as early country music).

The second strain of "Galway Hornpipe [1]" is shared with Jimmy Lyons' "Inishmurray (The)" and Alex Sutherland's "Star Hornpipe (6)."
