TRUMPET HORNPIPE  (Crannciuil Earglain). AKA – “Trumpet Reel.” AKA and see “Captain Pugwash,” “Hasils’,” "Reel du courrier," "Thunder Hornpipe (1)." Irish, Scottish, English; Hornpipe. England; Shropshire, Lancashire. G Major (Ashman, Craig, Hunter, Kerr, Martin, O'Neill, Sweet): E Flat Major (Cranford, Honeyman, Skinner): B Flat Major (Doyle). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Skinner): AAB (Hunter): ABB (Honeyman): AABB (Ashman, Craig, Doyle, Kerr, Martin, O'Neill/1850): AA'BB (Cranford, Sweet): AA'BB' (O'Neill). A hornpipe (occasionally set as a reel) of unknown provenance, although it was contained in a number of English musicians' manuscript collections of the first half of the 19th century. According to editor Gordon Ashman, "Today no one can play this tune without the words 'Captain Pugwash' coming to mind." Captian Pugwash is a children’s show for which the “Trumpet Hornpipe” is used as a theme, and so strong is the association that “Captain Pugwash” is used as an alternate title. The tune appears to have been extremely popular from the mid-19t century, given its appearance in musician’s manuscript collections of that era, although in modern times it is sometimes considered somewhat of a beginner’s tune at English sessions. In the Joseph Kershaw manuscript (c. 1820 onwards) the tune appears as “Hasils’”, from North West England. See also the American variant "Thunder Hornpipe (1)" (found in Ryan's Mammoth Collection, 1883) and Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard's (1873-1947) version as "Reel du courrier."
