It has been a while since the Mulligan's Pub Irish Session clan joined me for Fiddle Tune a Day - and I'm glad to get to play with these fun folks again.
Lately, I have really enjoyed having the people I'm playing with choose the tune, and lots of times that means I get to learn another new tune. They called this tune Pachelbel's Hornpipe because you can play the chords to Pachelbel's Canon over the top of it, and it works. I did a little bit of research, and Pachelbel's Hornpipe is not the original name for this tune.
I'm guessing that the Pachelbel correlation was made long before Eileen Ivers, but she did do a recording that she called Pachelbel's Frolics where she started out with Pachelbel's Canon, and then went into this Hornpipe, originally known as Kohler's Hornpipe.
I also found Sheet Music For Kohler's Hornpipe.
Kohler's Hornpipe according to Fiddler's Companion
KOHLER'S HORNPIPE. AKA - "Koehler's Hornpipe." AKA and see "Laybourn's Hornpipe." Scottish, Hornpipe. C Major. Standard. AABB. The tune was first printed as an untitled hornpipe in Kohler's Violin Repository (Edinburgh, 1881-5), in which is contained a number of hornpipes. The melody supposedly was popularized in modern times by Alisdair Fraser and Jody Stecher, although fiddler Eileen Ivers called the tune "Pachelbel's Frolics" due to its similarity to the famous cannon by Austrian composer Johann Pachelbel." It is also quite popular on Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island as "Kohler's Hornpipe" or "Laybourn's Hornpipe," and is sometimes played as a reel. Paul Burgess writes with the finding that "Kohler's Hornpipe" is actually a versin of "Savage Hornpipe" (which
predates Kohler), transposed from Bb to the key of C. Source for notated version: Paul MacDonald (b. 1974, Charlottetown, Queens County, Prince Edward Island) [Perlman]. Perlman (The Fiddle Music of Prince Edward Island), 1996; p. 119.
