This is the third tune in a medley of hornpipes from Texas fiddler Benny Thomasson. The medley began with College (Sailor’s) Hornpipe, followed by Acrobat’s Hornpipe and this as-yet unidentified hornpipe, and ended with a reprise of College.

I have not yet been able to identify this hornpipe. If you can identify it, please do not hesitate to contact me.

This hornpipe shouldn’t be too difficult other than the potentially unfamiliar key; just look out for sixteenth notes.

I am also including a transcription of the entire medley so that this hornpipe can be seen in context.

This tune is a member of the following groups:

Texas Fiddle
