Nice piping jig. With room for variations and small improvments.

A live, musical bush!:
Walking through the besom in bloom on a very hot July day near Carnac, in Britanny, we heard all the already formed black pods crack open in the sun!

At the Eglantine community garden, in Belfast, we used the whole bush(!) as shakers during a hedge music workshop I organised a month later.

Slight variant with a nice "GEAD" figure in both the A and B sections. Got it from both a John Doyle and Colm O’Donnell rendering.
