Old Man Quinn

Here’s a nice three part hornpipe from the O’Neill’s collection. I especially like the two triplet figures leading into rolls in the second two parts.

Good post!

I have been playing this for a few years and have never met any one else who knew it. A really good tune.

Old Man Quinn, X:3

This is a version from Howe’s Musician’s Companion, circa 1840, titled" Savin Hill Hornpipe"

Old Man Quinn, X:4

The bare bones of the Pádraig McGovern version from the video.
