TOTW 2-7-2020: Rickett's Hornpipe - Molehill Highlanders

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/7/20, Ricketts Hornpipe is an old dance tune. It's said John Bill Ricketts brought the tune from England to America in the late 1800's with his circus, which John Durang of Pennsylvania joined (and had a hornpipe named after him, too). It's said a hornpipe can be slower to allow the dancer more intricate steps.

All the intricacies of the Bill Keith version, but with your understated touch. Brilliantly done Ms. Janet.

Thank you, gentlemen. It’s fun to re-work a tune I learned in the 70’s. It’s easier now to play.
