Behind The Bush In The Garden

I first heard this tune on John Williams’ first album, on which he calls it “The Tidy Woman” and plays it more like a jig. It is more common as a slide though, under the name “Behind The Bush In The Garden”. I learned if from the Doon Ceili Band.

New Mown Meadow (The)

I learned “The New Mown Meadow” from the playing of Terry Bingham. It is a great reel that suits C#/D accordion players very well in particular and it is also quite common to hear this tune in A minor.

Banks of Newfoundland (The)

“The Banks of Newfoundland” is a very nice jig I heard during the Russell Weekend 2013 with Christy Barry and Terry Bingham. Terry got it from John Blake, Lamond Gillespie and Mick Leahy’s album “Traditional Irish Music From London”.
