The Four Masters

This is a hornpipe-style set dance that I’ve played for championship level competition dancers at feisianna. My (inexact) transcription comes from a recording by Kevin Joyce. Not sure, but I believe the title refers to sailing ships.

It is more likely that Four Masters would refer to a four masted ship
