BRENDAN'S FANCY. Irish, Hornpipe. G Major. Standard tuning. AABB. Paul de Grae finds the tune in O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903, No. 1682) as "The Bath Road Hornpipe." Evidently not having a new, Martin Mulvihill titled it after his source, his son Brendan. It was recorded as the "Concertina Hornpipe [2]" by Seattle fiddler Randal Bays.

Source for notated version: Brendan Mulvihill (Baltimore, Md.) [Mulvihill].

Printed source: Mulvihill (1st Collection), 1986; No. 44, p. 102.

Recorded source: Randal Bays - "Out of the Woods."
