Celtic Society’s Quickstep

IT’S 4/4 BUT NOT A REEL!!!
It’s traditional scottish but I don’t know exactly what this tune is; sound like a march but more accented… anybody know if this is a march or another genre… I don’t know if "quickstep" is actually a type of dance/genre like "strathspey", "jig", etc…
It is listenable on John (Johnny) Cunningham second album "Fair Warning".

Re: Celtic Society’s Quickstep

There’s a strathspey section on the site.

oh! what’s the name?

Re: Celtic Society’s Quickstep

Definitely a march!

Re: Celtic Society’s Quickstep

Sounds like a polka as well.

Re: Celtic Society’s Quickstep

What’s wrong with it just being a "quickstep" ? In "Kerr’s Third Collection of Merry Melodies for the Violin" - #416 on page 46. Memorably recorded by Johnny Cunningham [ RIP ]. Played well on flute here [ first tune ]:
