Tune of the Day: Tamony's Hornpipe

Traditional Irish hornpipe

This tune was collected by Chicago police captain Francis O'Neill, who included it in his collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in 1922. O'Neill's source was a fiddler named Joe Timoney (or Tamony), known in County Donegal as Joe Phaedar Sheain O Tiomanai; he emigrated to the United States at the beginning of the 20th century, and arrived in San Francisco just after the great earthquake of 1906. O'Neill calls “Tamony's Hornpipe” a variant of “Smith's Hornpipe”.
