Ireland, Sliabh Luachra region of the Cork-Kerry border. A Mixolydian. Ned Kendall was a renowned keyed-bugle player and band-leader based in eastern Massachusetts in the mid th century.
Not the hornpipe listed below. USA, Missouri. Ned Kendall has been identified either as a famous 19th century keyed-bugle player or as a competition-winning black step dancer of the same era.

The Boston Brass Band. Woodcut, published in Gleason's Pictorial Drawing Room in the s. Kendall did not confine himself to playing just in Boston. It should be noted that Kendall played an instrument known as a keyed-bugle, not the valve coronet, and that he was one of the strongest practitioners of the instrument of his era.

On the day of his arrival he accepted an invitation to join a sleighing party. The New York musician stepped into the side parlor to warm himself at the open fire, before which sat three men, who courteously made room for him. On a table near by lay a key bugle beside a case from which it had been taken.
The dark man opened his eyes wider. If the first few bars of the music made the other player start, the succeeding ones transfixed him as the performer executed strains with a correctness, sill and beauty that he never before heard extracted from a bugle. The variations, trills, tones and melody of the familiar old dance tune was rendered as never dreamed of by that New Yorker, as the music flowed from the bell of the bugle under the skillful manipulation and never failing wind of the performer, who, at the conclusion of his performance, amid a roar of applause, remarked, with the same twinkle in his dark eyes:.
Why, that no loving man could have done that. You must be either the devil or Ned Kendall! He was a great bugle player, but Ned Kendall was a greater one," said Dr Chase.
