SMITH'S HORNPIPE [3]. American, Hornpipe (2/4 or whole time). B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was first published by Boston music publisher Elias Howe in his Musician's Omnibus No. 1(c. 1863, p. 47) on a page headed "Contra Dances," along with "Pretty Polly," "Jordan is a Hard Road," "Lamp-lighter's Hornpipe," "Arkansas Traveller" and others, all including dance instructions. "Smith's Hornpipe" was reprinted in the popularRyan's Mammoth Collection (1883) and found its way into the repertory of influential 20th century northwest Missouri-style fiddlers Bob Walters, Cyril Stinnet, and Casey Jones other regional fiddlers, probably via musically literate fiddlers who had a copy. It is still part of the core repertoire today.
