SAILOR'S HORNPIPE  (Crannciuil an Mairnealaig). AKA and see “Manchester Hornpipe (1),” "Quadrille de Berthier 3ème partie," "Rickett's Hornpipe." “Yarmouth Hornpipe (1).” English, Scottish, American, Shetland, Irish; Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody is a variant of the widely popular “Manchester Hornpipe," also known by several other names. It probably acquired the name "Sailor's Hornpipe" through association with hornpipes danced on the stage by performers in nautical costume, as there are several tunes called "Sailor's Hornpipe." A version of the melody also under the “Sailor’s Hornpipe” title appears in the music manuscript copybooks of fiddler John Burks, dated 1821, and the c. 1883 collection of County Leitrim piper and fiddler Stephen Grier. Unfortunately, nothing is known of Burks although he may have been from the north of England.
