I think I’ve heard this played in a set with All in a Garden Green.
This is one of the first hornpipes i played and its still one of my favourites . . its quite easy to play . . and it always goes downwell with every one. . can’t understand why its not more popular with musos. Ithink it started life as a whistle tune.
i agree stewpot, lovely simple tune but hardly anyone ever plays it! one of my favourites.
It’s a bit like a reel pretending to be a hornpipe.
I hate hornpipes.
But I love honeysuckle!
Here’s the real thing:
a delightfully scented blossom that comes of its own in the evening (to attract the pollinating moths that have adapted to its deep corolla)

This seems to be the tune titled Off to California, ex.40 in Gerry O’Connor’s "Complete guide to Learning the Irish Tenor Banjo" tutor book.
I’m fairly sure the tune is simply mistitled in the book though, I don’t think this is an alternative title. There are a few misprints in the book’s notation/tab. Also on the CD Gerry plays Murphy’s Hornpipe on the CD track which is meant to accompany this tune. Confusing!
