PRINCESS HORNPIPE. AKA and see "Coey's Hornpipe," "London Clog (2)," "Miss Ferry's Hornpipe," "Southern Shore (The)," "Tammany Ring," "Wonder Hornpipe (The)." American, Hornpipe. B Flat Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The hornpipe has an English/Scottish provenance, and is generally attributed to Tyneside fiddler-composer James Hill (folk musician) (c. 1811-53) as "Wonder Hornpipe (The)." However, it has long been popular with Irish players. "Can be used as a Clog,” notes Ryan.
