SLINGSBY'S HORNPIPE [1]. AKA - "Slingby's Hornpipe." American (?), Hornpipe (2/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody appears as "Slingby's Hornpipe" on the last page of Uri Hill's A Number of Original Airs, Duetto's and Trio's (c. 1803; p. 20), published by Andrew Wright in Northampton (Mass.). Boston music publisher Elias Howe reprinted it later in the century (adding an 's' in the title), apparently having accessed a copy of Hill's small (20 pages) volume.
