Da Bush Below Da Gairden

This setting is from Capercaillie’s fist album ‘Cascade’ (1984). It’s a traditional Shetland reel from the Tingwall district, not far from Lerwick.

Behind the bush in the garding

This is clearly related to a reel in the George Sanders of Ryton (in the Tyne valley) manuscript of 1758 entitled behind the Bush in the Garding.
The manuscript is in Beamish Museum.
i’ll code it and post it as soon as i get time.
You wonder on the link between the two sources.
