VIRGINIA HORNPIPE [3]. American (?), Hornpipe (2/4 time). D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Versions of the melody appear in the 19th century music manuscript collections of County Cork Church of Ireland cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman and County Leitrim piper and fiddler Stephen Grier (c. 1824-1894); the former as "Virginia Hornpipe" and the latter as an untitled tune. Grier researchers Fr. John Quinn and Conor Ward find a cognate version in one of the James S. Kerr publications (Glasgow) as "Negro Melody."
