Staten Island Hornpipe
Composer: Traditional

Staten Island Hornpipe has been performed by Railroad Earth.

The origins of the tune are uncertain. It is printed in James Aird's Selection of Scotch, English, Irish, and Foreign Airs (vol. II, 1782, Glasgow) and is possibly of Irish or Scottish origin. It is also uncertain if the Staten Island of the title is the one which is now part of New York or the one south of Tierra Del Fuego.
