WHIPPLE'S HORNPIPE. American, Hornpipe. B Flat Major (most versions): G Major (Miller). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Boston publisher Elias Howe printed instructions for a contra-dance to the tune in his 1000 Jigs and Reels (c. 1867), and dance figures only to "Whipple's Hornpipe" in his American dancing master, and ball-room prompter (1866, p. 84). The same dance instructions were printed in Prompting: How to do it (Boston, 1890), by John M. Schell, "One of Boston's Leading Prompters." It seems likely the hornpipe's appearance in Glasgow publisher James S. Kerr's Merry Melodies, vol. 2 (c. 1880's) is a borrowing from the earlier Howe publications. An identical title appears in a list of traditional Ozarks Mountains fiddle tunes compiled by musicologist/folklorist Vance Randolph, published in 1954.
