This month it has been proposed that the net be widened a bit; the subject is 'hornpipe' but it's up to you how you interpret it!

Pete, your playing of these old hornpipes is beautiful. Why do they sound French to me?

Found this video of EJ Jones playing 3/2 hornpipes on Youtube.

glad you enjoyed them; why do they sound French? possibly because the only simple three-time dance we're left with apart from the waltz is the three-time bourree. possibly because I'm stepping a bourree while I 'm playing. there's a lovely description by Edward Thompson [1775] of minuet dancing in Edinburgh which he describes as the 'galloping minuet'; that's what I'm going for ...

Not exactly a hornpipe, but the nearest I get currently to a common time one; from Matt Seattle's 'Over the Hills and Far Away'; the tune first appeared in 1759; now known in Northumberland as 'Till the Tide Comes In'
