Folk hornpipes[ edit ] The hornpipe is an Irish, Scottish and English dance. It is done in hard shoes, which are used to help keep track of how the dancer keeps in time. There are two variations of the hornpipe dance: fast and slow. Usually, more experienced dancers will do the slow hornpipe but younger dancers will start out with the fast hornpipe and then switch in later years.

There is a change of tempo in the music but not the dancing between these two speeds. The rhythm for both fast and slow hornpipes is very even and should be executed that way by the dancer.

The most common use of the term nowadays refers to a class of tunes in 4 4 time. The dance is done in hard shoes. Some 19th-century examples mix the dotted and even styles. Many fine hornpipes were written in this period, often with well-known composers. In England, a noted composer of hornpipes on Tyneside was the influential fiddler-publican James Hill c.

A lively 3 2 time dance rhythm, which remained popular in northern English and lowland Scottish instrumental music until the 19th century. Often these tunes have off-beat accents, usually in even-numbered bars, presumably corresponding to the lost dance steps. The form, having short strains, with a simple fixed harmonic scheme, and recognisable tags at the ends, is very suitable for the playing of variations. This has probably accounted for its survival among players of the Northumbrian smallpipes.

The term was also used formerly to refer to tunes in 9 4 or 9 8 time. These may have been thought of as differing only inessentially from the 3 2 hornpipes. Some early examples of these are also syncopated. The form survives in Northumberland and Ireland. Such tunes are usually referred to nowadays by the Irish name slip jig.

Examples, current in Northumberland, of all these kinds of hornpipe may be found, either recorded or notated, on the FARNE archive website [1]. In the Reverend Warner Warner journeyed through Wales. In describing a Welsh ball, he wrote, "The ball was concluded by a contest of agility between two brothers, who danced two distinct hornpipes with so much power and muscle, variety of step and inflexible perseverance, as exceeded everything we had seen.

It is probably artificial to draw too rigid a distinction between the popular and art-music examples. Hornpipes are occasionally found in German music of this period.
