NUMBER ONE [1]. Irish, Hornpipe. E Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. The first strain of "Number One (2)" and "Duke's Retreat" both dating to the first decades of the 19th century, is cognate, as they are with "Charley's Farewell," "Few Bob (The)," "Five Roads (The)" and "Jenny's Dream (2)," among others. Brendan Breathnach collected it as an untitled hornpipe from County Antrim fiddler Alex Kerr, however the name "Number One" for the tune can be found in Frank Kidson's (1855-1926) Old English Country Dances (1890, p. 23).
