Tune of the Day: Whiteside'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. O’Neill says of his source: “James Whiteside, the ‘Bard of Bray’, County Wicklow, was a genius—scholar, poet, musician, composer. Born in County Monaghan in 1844, he retired after 40 years service as a schoolteacher at Bray. His playing of the violin won two first honors at two Feiseanna [traditional Gaelic festivals].”
