Tune of the Day: Grey Eagle

Traditional English/American hornpipe

This is one of the most well known fiddle tunes in the Midwestern United States. The present version is taken from a 1843 music manuscript collection belonging to an unknown American fiddler named G. McMillan. It appears directly above a tune titled “Wagner”, so there is no doubt that the title refers to the famed Kentucky horse race between the two horses, Grey Eagle and Wagner, held in Louisville in 1838.
