Bird in the Bush (The)

“The Bird In The Bush” is a very common reel in sessions all over the world. It was one of the first reel I ever learned and I got it from Hugh Healy & Colm Healy’s album “Macalla Na hOige”. Actually, this album is really great for tunes to learn on top of being great music!
