All Comers Tunes for Jan 4

The All Comers Band set of the month for January 4 is Old French/Lamplighter’s Hornpipe.

These are two classic tunes from the New England repertoire. I learned recently that lamplighters used to walk around on stilts to reach the gas street lamps more easily. That must have been tricky on cobbled streets! I like to picture the lamplighters teetering down the streets when I play this tune.
