OLD TANGLEFOOT. AKA and see "Midnight Dance (The)," "Palmetto Hornpipe." American, Hornpipe. A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'. "Can be used as a Clog" (Cole). The title is perhaps an oblique reference to 1880's variety stage clog dancers. The hornpipe has an English provenance, with versions of the hornpipe appearing in musicians manuscript collections in the first half of the 19th century as "Manchester Hornpipe (2)," "Portsmouth Hornpipe (2)", "Prince Regent's Hornpipe (2)," "Ror Hornpipe," and others. Ryan (1883) has another version as "Old Tanglefoot."
