Michael Coleman

This is the second hornpipe in an amalgamated tune (a pairing of "Galway Hornpipe (1) (The)" and "Sligo Fancy (The)") that was recorded by renowned County Sligo fiddler Michael Coleman [1] (1891-1945) on a 78 RPM recording in New York in 1922. The set was named by Coleman after Bunnanadden, County Sligo, fiddler and publican Peter James (P.J.) McDermott (b. 1874), who had a strong influence on Coleman when he was learning to play in Ireland. The provenance is unknown: the first strain is cognate with the Scottish "Marquis of Lorne (1)" printed by James S. Kerr in the 1880's.
