Tune of the Day: The Bo'sun

Traditional English hornpipe

This G-major hornpipe is taken from Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905.

A bo'sun, or boatswain, is the senior crewman of the deck department of a ship; he supervises the other members of the department and is responsible for the components of the ship's hull.
