PARKER'S FANCY. AKA and see "Jack O'Neill's Fancy," "Jim Coleman's (5)," "Morrison's Hornpipe," "Sweeney's Hornpipe (1)," "Sweep's Hornpipe (2) (The)." Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Recorded in New York by fiddler Hugh Gillespie (1906-1986), originally from near Ballybofey, County Donegal, Ireland. Gillespie named several of his tunes for Irish music-loving hosts whose houses were always open to musicians to gather and play; hosts such as Con Crowley, Paddy Finley and Dick Cosgrove (according to Tony Engle and Tony Russell's liner notes of Tppic 12T364). Perhaps Parker was one.
