HORNPIPE [65]. Irish, Hornpipe (?) (whole time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. This untitled tune is contained in Book 3 of the large c. 1883 music manuscript collection of County Leitrim fiddler and piper biography:Stephen Grier (c. 1824-1984). Grier usually labelled his untitled hornpipes as "Hornpipe", and this tune was not so labelled; it may not be a hornpipe although it is structured like one.
