The Bush In Bloom

I think I prefer this as a single. That Matt Molloy setting’s nice. The O’Neill’s version’s quite a lot different in the 2nd part, and retains that variation where it goes up high halfway through the A-part:

Mark’s (NB/Dow) version from O’Neill’s is very close to what I got off of a live recording from the Ennis Fleadh Nua in 2003.
