The Old Vest and Cravat

This tune is in O’Neill’s collection, but there’s a more interesting version in the Roche Collection, one that includes a lot of accidentals and probably wouldn’t suit the pipes at all. For more info on the faction fighting gangs "Shanavest" and "Caravat," see the notes on this tune on the "Fiddler’s Companion" website.

A lot of accidentals— some blurriness between minor/dorian/harmonic minor going on. I like it.

The title The Gentle Bush is from the version of this tune given by Josephine Keegan in her book "A Drop in the Ocean". She calls it a set dance, though most of the published settings (e.g. Roche) are clearly hornpipes.
