All Comers Tunes for December 6

The All Comers Band tune of the month for December 6 is Galopede.

This is a classic New England dance and tune – one of the great tunes to be found in the New England Fiddler’s Repertoire. We’ve played it many times at the First Friday dance but somehow it never made it onto our tune list! We’re bringing it back this month and will play it for the dance of the same name. One of our jobs will be to accentuate the rhythm of the repeated d’s in the third part to help the dancers clap in groups of three along with music.
