The Fisherman’s (hornpipe)
From the sleeve notes of “John Kelly Fiddle & Concertina Player” album, Topic Records, 1975:
“John had this from an old concertina player of West Clare but plays it with his own arrangement. O’Neill prints two closely-related sets in his Music of Ireland (Nos 1575-76) The tune is also known as The Egg, Lord Howe’s, Blanchard’s. The College, and The Blacksmith’s Hornpipe.”
