For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/23/16, Anthony H. Clapp (1749 - 1816) -- said to have been an excellent fiddler and a slave belonging to the family of William Sydney Mount (famed painter of The Banjo Player) -- wrote and named this tune for the town in which he lived. Mount had it in his collections of fiddle tunes, which are kept at the Stony Brooks Museum in Long Island, NY. See this week's TOTW for more info.
