KATHERINE BRENNAN'S FAVORITE. AKA and see "Swinging on a Gate." Irish-American, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The tune, says Andy McGann (who learned it from his fiddle teacher Katherine Brennan), is basically the reel "Swinging on a Gate," slowed and slightly altered. Brennan played it frequently at sessions.
