Wilson's Hornpipe is a fun Old-Timey tune that I learned from Bob Zuellig at the Wednesday Night Avo's Jam a while back. I really enjoy playing the high harmony to it, which you will hear me play in this recording. It looks like the oldest known recording of this was made by Clark Kessinger, who I have tons of respect for as a fiddler.
