Miss Lacey’s

I heard this one at a session this past weekend. I didn’t find it with a quick search at this site, so I thought it might be nice to add it here for general consumption.

Origin?

Do you know where this tune is from? Is it Irish or English? and should I be playing it with a dotted rhythm like Irish hornpipes? Nice tune.

Origin of Miss Lacey’s

Hi Roisin,

I don’t know, but I am guessing that it is of Irish origin. When I heard it played, it was with an Irish-style dotted rhythm. Thanks for the tune compliment.

MISS LACEY’S HORNPIPE. AKA and see “Mona’s Delight.” Irish, Hornpipe. The tune bears some resemblance to an untitled Pennsylvania collected reel (Bayard {Dance to the Fiddle}, 1981; No. 100, pg. 59). Breathnach (CRÉ IV), 1986; No. 214 (appears as untitled hornpipe). Roche Collection, 1982, vol. 2, No. 226.

found this one in a manuscript written by a piper from Aughrim, Wicklow. Apparently it was played around the area years ago…

The Organ Hornpipe

I have transcribed a version here that appears in a fiddle manuscript belonging to Francis Reynolds of Gaigue, Ballinamuck that was written c.1885. He entitles it ‘The Organ Hornpipe".
