Six comments

An enjoyable fast-moving hornpipe played in sessions in Bristol.
The version posted is "bare bones". The version in O’Neill’s Dance Music of Ireland (#952), with phrasing, is as follows:

The Sunshine Hornpipe

Do you know the tune by another name, unable to find a midi version.

The Sunshine, X:4

Learned this version from an accordionist friend. On whistle and pipes, the low C needs to be an octave higher, of course. Still works.
