PEACEMAKER('S HORNPIPE), THE {An Siocantaide/Siotadoir}. AKA and see "Pibddawns Rhif Wyth," "Ryth/Rhif Wyth." English, Irish; Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Peter Kennedy (1951) gave the tune the alternate title "Ryth Wyth," the title used by Welsh triple-harpist Nancy Richards (1888-1979), whom Kennedy recorded in the 1950's and early 1960's. On Richards' albums (Folktrax FTX-353 and Folktrax FTX-053) the hornpipe is identified as Welsh, and the title variously spelled "Rhif Wyth" and "Rhyf Wyth."
