COLUMBIA HORNPIPE. American, Hornpipe. D Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. There has been a suggestion the tunes with names such as this may have been named after 19th century engineering feats or events--there was, for example a famous Columbian Exposition. However, the name Columbia was in use to refer poetically to the Americas since the mid-18th century, and Columbia is the female personification of the United States (hence 'District of Columbia' is the official name of Washington, D.C.).
