HornpipesA few dances, mainly with a nautical association in the name, are categorized as Hornpipes though the only differentiation from a 4/4 tempo Reel is in the distinctive rhythm.
In some classifications, notably MiniCrib, these are not differentiated from Reels.
For example, here are some Scottish Country Dances categorized as Hornpipes-
Angus MacKinnon's Hornpipe
Lakeside Kelpie Hornpipe
Royal Navy Hornpipe
Sound of Harris
Thousand Islands Hornpipe
