Hole In The Hedge (The)

“The Hole In The Hedge” is a jig I picked up at a session in Gus O’Connor’s Pub with Eoin O’Neill, Quentin Cooper, Jon O’Connell, Terry Bingham and Thierry Masure. It is related to “Larry The Beer Drinker”.

I recorded this tune back in 2015 for a 30 tune-a-day challenge, see video below.
