TREMONT CLOG HORNIPE. American, Hornpipe (2/4 time). F Major ('A' part) & C Major ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. 'Tremont' may refer to Boston's Tremont street, named for three hills on the originally narrow peninsula where Boston grew and prospered. Boston's theater district is located on Tremont Street, along with Washington Street, Boylston Street and Huntington Ave, where venues for variety and minstrel shows were located. There is also a Tremont Avenue in the Borough of the Bronx, New York City, similarly named by its first postmaster for three hills in mid-Bronx: Mount Eden, Mount Hope and Fairmount.
