SET AMÉRICAIN 2ÈME PARTIE. AKA and see "Breakdown de Neufchâtel," "Clog en Fa (1) (Boucher)," "Fancy Clog Hornpipe," "Jane's Hornpipe," "Reel St. Jean," "Remontée au chantier (La)," "Sautillante (La)," "Virginia Hornpipe (1)." French-Canadian, Reel (cut or 2/4 time). D Major ('A' part) & B Minor ('B' part). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. This is the tune that is popular in contra-dance and Quebecois sessions with the paired-down title "Set américain." It was recorded in 1945 by Quebec City accordion player biography:Théodore Duguay (1904-1950), and was one of only a couple of recordings he made.

Théodore Duguay

A version of the melody can be found in J.A. Boucher's Le Répertoire du Violoneux[1] (Montreal, 1933, No. 7) under the title "Clog en Fa (Boucher)." Boucher's version is set in dotted clog/hornpipe rhythm, and researcher Jean Duval notes that there is every indication that the tune was originally played in Quebec in the keys of F Major/D Minor, as in Boucher's collection. This was also the key employed by Montreal fiddler biography:Isidore_Soucy who recorded a 'crooked' or irregular version of the melody in 1927 under the title "Sautillante (La)" (Starr 15338a).

An ancestral or precursor version of the both strains of the hornpipe can be found in the large mid-19th century music manuscript collection of Manchester, England, musician biograhy:John Roose under the title "Jane's Hornpipe." Duval also notes an earlier cognate version of the tune in Glasgow music publisher James S. Kerr's Merry Melodies vol. 3 (c. 1880's, No. 357) where it can be found as "Virginia Hornpipe (1)." An American version of the tune was published a few years still earlier, in Coes' Album of Jigs and Reels (1876) as "Fancy Clog Hornpipe." In Ireland, variants include biography:Rev. Luke Donnellan's Oriel region, south Ulster, "Sterling Tom" and "Miss Hamilton's Reel"[1].
