Hole in the Hedge

We’ve known this tune for a while because Jane taught it to Noah and we listened to Martin Hayes playing it on his album Under the Moon. Having said that its taken me a long time to learn to play it and I think it will take a while before I can play it well. Nonetheless it is a beautiful tune and works well slowly.

There are some good places to hear it on Youtube:

Played in a field in Cornwall on a mandolin

Steph West playing it on her harp (at 1.53 mins into video)

Contraband playing it (starting at 2.04 mins)

And I just found these three having fun (accordion, fiddle and guitar)

Each is quite different and not that fast. Hope you enjoy them.
