Apple Hornpipe (D)

The “Apple Hornpipe” is a light-hearted tune, but not a hornpipe, despite its name.  It is a barndance.  While I first heard it on the CD The Green Mandolin (2008) by New England guitar and mandolin player  David Surrett, the tune is, in fact, traditional Quebecoise (i.e., Quebec music), and appears on the CD 100 Ans de Musique Traditionnelle – Quatrieme Epoque (1980-2000) and played by the enigmatic fiddler Lauréat Bérubé (d. 2012).  It should not be confused with the jig “Apples in Winter.”  David Surrett
