SECOND STAR HORNPIPE, THE. AKA and see "Freddy Kimmel's," "Julia Clifford's Hornpipe," "Star Hornpipe (3) (The)," "Star of the East." Scottish (?), Hornpipe (cut time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABBCCDD. The composition is attributed to G. Tate in Laybourn's Köhler’s Violin Repository vol. 2 (1881-1885). Unfortunately, there is no information that has surfaced on the attributed composer. However, the hornpipe was previously published in American by Elias Howe as "Star Hornpipe (3) (The)" in his 1000 Jigs and Reels (c. 1967), and by Howe employee William Bradbury Ryan in Ryan's Mammoth Collection (1883) as "Star of the East," without mention of Tate.

A hornpipe called "Freddy Kimmel's" (AKA "Julia Clifford's Hornpipe") was recorded by John and Julia Clifford on their LP "The Humours of Lisheen" (Topic 12TS311, 1977) that is quite similar to "Second Star Hornpipe," with the addition of a third part. The title "Freddy Kimmel's" comes from Billy Clifford who recalled that was the name his father used, but no such individual is known. It may be a mishearing/misremembering of Brooklyn accordion player John J. Kimmel, a prolific early 78 RPM recording artist.
