WORCESTER HORNPIPE. AKA - "Worcestershire Hornpipe (1)," "Worster Hornpipe." AKA and see “The Navy,” "Navvy (The)," “New Bridge Hornpipe," "Lakeside Road (The)," "Paddy Mack," "Prince of Wales' Hornpipe (1)," "Shippool Castle Hornpipe.” English, Hornpipe (whole or cut time). G Major (most versions): A Major (John Moore). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The melody was collected in 1907 by English folklorist Cecil Sharp (1859-1924) from fiddler John Mason (Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire). It appears in the music manuscripts of a few 19th century English musicians under several alternate titles, and as untitled hornpipes in Joshua Burnett's (South Yorkshire) c. 1835 ms. and John Nichol's (Northumberland) mid-19th century ms.. The tune migrated to the United States where versions entered the Irish music collections of Chief Francis O'Neill (Chicago) as "<incipit title="load:lakeside" width=850 link="https://tunearch.org/wiki/Lakeside Road (The)">Lakeside Road (The)</incipit>" and "<incipit title="load:paddy" width=850 link="https://tunearch.org/wiki/Paddy Mack">Paddy Mack</incipit>."
