Honeymoon Reel (The)

“The Honeymoon” is a reel I learned from one of the best sessions I ever saw, during the Russell Memorial Weekend back in 2013 in Gus O’Connor’s Pub. It was a magical night with free flowing music by Noel O’Donoghue, James Cullinan, Donie Nolan, Christy Barry, Terry Bingham, Carol Cullinan, Angela Crotty and several others.

Yvonne Casey also recorded it on her first solo album.

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.
