Tune of the Day: Christmas Hornpipe

Traditional American hornpipe

This tune was first printed in Elias Howe's 1000 Jigs and Reels, published in Boston around 1867. It is most commonly used for contra dancing, and in fact instructions for a “Christmas Hornpipe” dance had been published as early as 1862 in Howe's American Dancing Master.

Merry Christmas to all!
