CORK HORNPIPE [1], THE. AKA and see "Cincinnati Hornpipe (1)," "Dundee Hornpipe," "Fred Wilson's Clog," "Granny Will Your Dog Bite? (4)" (Pa.), "Harvest Home (1)," "Higgins' Hornpipe," "Kephart's Clog" (Pa.), "Kildare Fancy," "Snyder's Jig" (Pa.), "Standard Hornpipe," "Wilson's Clog (1)," "Zig-Zag Hornpipe/Clog." Irish, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). ABB' (Moylan): AABB (Levey, Roche). The name Cork is derived from the Gaelic word coraigh, a swamp. The tune was known under this title by central New York fiddler Winifred "Murph" Baker (Champion, NY), a regionally significant traditional fiddler in the mid-late 20th century. Most American versions were learned under a variety of alternate titles (the most popular being "Harvest Home"), with "Cork Hornpipe" appearing exclusively in Irish publications.
