HORSES IN THE CANEBRAKE. AKA - "Hosses in the Canebreak." AKA and see "Wild Horse in the Cane Break." Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Kentucky. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Canebrake is a naturally occurring, tall-growing plant that was once used by farmers who resided where it grew as an enclosure for livestock. Titon says this appears to be a local tune, not related to the well-known (albeit relatedly entitled) "Cattle in the Cane (1)." There is an early 20th century newspaper record of a tune called "Wild Hog in the Cane-Break" being played at a contest in Alabama, but it is unknown if there is any relationship.
