JULIA CLIFFORD'S HORNPIPE. AKA and see "Freddy Kimmel's," "Second Star Hornpipe," "Star of the East." Irish, Hornpipe (whole time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCC. "Julia Clifford's Hornpipe" is quite similar in the first two strains to "Star of the East" published in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883) and "Second Star Hornpipe" published around the same time in Kohler's Violin Repository Book 2. A third part has been added to the older tunes. Billy Clifford remembered his father calling the tune "Freddy Kimmel's," but a musician by that name has not been identified and it may be a mishearing of "John Kimmel," an American accordion player of the early 78 RPM era.

Additional notes

Printed sources : - Topic 12T211/Ossian, John & Julia Clifford - "The Humours of Lisheen" (learned from Sliabh Luachra fiddler Padraig O'Keeffe. The title on the record, "Freddy Kimmel's", according to Alan Ward, probably refers to Brooklyn accordion player John Kimmel, who recorded in the early 20th century, though the tune does not appear on any extent recording of his).
