Nice recording of The Bush :)
This is a recording of Jennifer Cutting and I playing our version of John Spiers and John Boden's arrangement of the traditional song "Prickly Bush" live at a house concert in Takoma Park. It's a number that we've played at the Southern Maryland Celtic Festival. To be honest with you, the main reaction that we've gotten from Americans can best be described as "bewilderment".
"Gee, huh? A what kinda bush?"
At any rate, I really have to hand it to Jennifer, there's very few accordian players I know who could play such a complex part, which is great, because she really carries this song in both arms. Here's the original John Spiers and John Boden version, as played by their big band "Bellowhead"
Oh the Prickle Eye Bush
