COOK HORNPIPE. AKA and see "Kirkgate Hornpipe (1)." English, Hornpipe. England, Yorkshire. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. No relation to the Shropshire- collected "Cook's Hornpipe." The tune appears in Kidson (1890) as "The Kirkgate Hornpipe ." Kidson notes the tune was very popluar in Leeds, Yorkshire, area in the early 19th century, where a small musical society used to hold its meetings in Kirkgate. Perhaps 'Cook' is a miss-hearing of Kirkgate?
