T:Reavy's Grand Hornpipe
C:Ed Reavy
Z:Joe Reavy
N:As excellent as the other tunes are, some feel
N:that Ed's reputation will stand because of the high
N:quality of his hornpipes. If this dance form were
N:more fashionable today among the musicians, Ed would
N:certainly be much more widely acclaimed. No one has
N:written so many exquisite hornpipes, and the
N:Grand Hornpipe surely is a fitting example of
N:Ed's talent for this rhythmical dance form.
