MISS SHEPHERD'S HORNPIPE. AKA and see "Cairding O't (The)", "Salt Fish and Dumplings," "Scotch Hornpipe (6)," Shepherd's Hornpipe." Scottish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune appears in the 1835-41 music manuscript collection of Wyresdale, Lancashire, musician James Winder as "Scotch Hornpipe." O'Neill's title seems to have derived from "Shepherd's Hornpipe," which is the title in piper O'Farrell's very early 19th century collection. There is nothing particularly characteristic of Irishness or Scottishness about the melody, but it does have a long history in Scotland as the vehicle for the song "Cairding O't (The)" and as the hornpipe "Salt Fish and Dumplings."
