Tune of the Day: Captain Corbett's Hornpipe

Traditional Irish hornpipe

This hornpipe is taken from Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. The tune was supplied by Francis E. Walsh, a correspondent of O'Neill's from San Francisco. It appears to be a variant of Captain John's Hornpipe, which dates back to at least the mid 1800s.
