Sailor’s Hornpipe (Kerr)

#275 in Vol 4 of Kerr’s Merry Melodies, this attractive tune is obviously not the usual Sailor’s H-pipe, and was recorded by the Celtic Fiddle Festival on their Rendezvous record.

Title

Can’t this retain the "Sailor’s Hornpipe (Kerr)" title I gave it originally? It’s a way to distinguish it from the various entries for the usual SH, important since searching for a title no longer shows the key of the entries in the results. I also retitled the number on the Rendezvous album: https://thesession.org/recordings/177

Re: Sailor’s

That’s weird, it wasn’t posted a few days ago and now it’s back but without the (Kerr)! Also, that D in the 3rd-to-last bar of the B part should be a B. Or you could play it either way. See you Thursday.
