LOCKER'S HORNPIPE. American, Hornpipe. B Flat Major/F Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Perhaps the earliest recording is from 1904 by violinist Charles D'Almaine, born in 1871 in England, who died in 1943. D'Almaine immigrated to the United States in 1888, and by 1890 had established himself as "instructor on violin" in Evanston, Illinois; by 1910 he had removed to Yonkers, and in 1920 was a chiropractor in New York City (info. from Paul Gifford). The tune appears as the third in a series of hornpipes in D'Almaine's medley, with the whole piece recorded again in 1920 by violinist Percy Scott. The entire medley was transcribed in J.A. Boucher's rare 1933 printed collection Le Repertoire du Violoneux.
