The Echoing Strings Composed by Owen Hackett
Hi, I just noticed that this Hornpipe is on a new CD by the Late Dermot Grogan (recently submitted to ‘The Sessions’) so I decided to add it in notation form.
I think that it is known locally under his name.
The Proper Title is ‘The Echoing Strings’ composed by Owen Hackett, Banjo Player.
The Echoing Strings Hornpipe. A Wrong Note
Hi fellow musicians, just like to mention that I put a wrong note in this hornpipe when uploading it to the sessions. The Low ‘C’ in the 2nd bar, should be an ‘A’ in the 2nd space up from the bottom line.
Only you can correct the ABC

This is a version from the Bumblebees album Buzzin’. They play it in a slightly dotted rhythm which is omitted here for ease of transcription really. The overall feel is a bit less triplety than the original which I like.

Yes. I posted the Bumblebees setting 12 years ago, but as a two-part tune. What I thought was just faffing about before the tune started was, in fact, what’s given as the first two parts above. Not many four-part hornpipes about.
