Dinner Horns


A recording of several 19th century sheet metal "dinner horns" from the collection of Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto, played by David Travers-Smith. These were blown at mealtimes on farms to call family and hired hands in from the fields. Most have a trumpet-type mouthpiece. The final example has a metal reed - like a big New Year's Eve party horn. From the cassette recording "A Grand Musical Entertainment", 1991.
