DUNDEE HORNPIPE. AKA and see "Brown's Hornpipe," "Cincinnati Hornpipe (1)," "Cliff Hornpipe," "Duxbury Hornpipe," "Fred Wilson's Clog/Hornpipe," "Harvest Home (1)," "Higgins' Hornpipe," "Kephart's Clog" (Pa.), "Kildare Fancy" (Rogha Chill Dara), "Paine's Reel," "Pantomime Reel (2)," "Rakes of Kildare," "Ruby Lip," "Snyder's Jig" (Pa.), "Standard Hornpipe," "Union Hornpipe (3)," "Wilson's Clog (1)," "Zig-Zag Hornpipe/Clog." Scottish, Irish, American, Canadian; Hornpipe or Breakdown. USA; Nebraska, Pennsylvania, New England. Canada; Cape Breton, New Brunswick. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (Christeson, Cole, Cranford, Phillips): AA'BB' (Gatherer, Kerr). The name Dundee is formed from the Celtic root-word dun, meaning a fortified place, along with what is thought to be a man's name, perhaps an early chieftain. Dundee, in Angus, was made a royal burgh by William the Lyon about 1190. A century later William Wallace attended grammar school their and supposedly fatally wounded another student in an argument about his dagger. It was an unlucky town: attacked by Robert I in 1313, it was burned by John of Gaunt in 1385, plundered by Henry VIII's forces in 1547, looted by the marquess of Montrose in 1645 and many of its citizens were massacred by General Monck when it refused to surrender to Cromwell. "Kildare Fancy" or " Kildare Hornpipe" is an alternate title. "Dundee" shares melodic material (to a greater or lesser degree) with a large family of hornpipe tunes "Brown's Hornpipe," "Cincinnati Hornpipe (1)," "Cliff Hornpipe," "Duxbury Hornpipe," "Fred Wilson's Clog/Hornpipe," "Harvest Home (1)," "Higgins' Hornpipe," "Kephart's Clog" (Pa.), "Paine's Reel," "Pantomime Reel (2)," "Rakes of Kildare," "Ruby Lip," "Snyder's Jig" (Pa.), "Standard Hornpipe," "Union Hornpipe (3)," "Wilson's Clog (1)," "Zig-Zag Hornpipe/Clog."
