The Bees In The Cherry Tree

This was posted fairly recently by Harry Bradley on his “Errant Elbows” website. He’d been investigating the compositions of Belfast flute-player James McMahon [ composer of “The Banshee” ], and had come across this simple wee jig in 12/8. Lovely tune for flute players, as you would expect.
