JAMES KERR'S HORNPIPE. Scottish, Hornpipe. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. Kerr was a publisher of several influential collections beginning about 1875, which are still available today. This hornpipe appeared as an untitled tune in one of the collections and appeared as "Kerr's Hornpipe" on Winston Fitzgerald's LP. It was given the name "James Kerr's Hornpipe" by Paul Cranford to distinguish it from other "Kerr's Hornpipe's."
