WHITESIDE’S HORNPIPE. Irish, Hornpipe (whole time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. O’Neill (1922) says of his source: “James Whiteside, the ‘Bard of Bray’, County Wicklow, was a genius—scholar, poet, musician, composer. Born in County Monaghan in 1844, he retired after 40 years service as a schoolteacher at Bray. His playing of the violin won two first honors at two Feiseanna. An interesting sketch of his life appears on pages 384-7, {O’Neill’s} Irish Minstrels and Musicians.”
