An Slide Dubh / Slide Caoimhín

The first slide I pulled together for a fiddler friend of mine Sean Ó Liatháin from Sliabh Riach. He plays the fiddle in the old style on his knee and makes wonderful music. Viewers of that popular Irish television series, “Come West Along The Road” will know his playing as the signature tune is a recording of his playing while we danced a set. I was asked to supply a piece of dance music for a film by Cathal Black and asked Sean would he go with me to film it on Achill Island. So hence the tune “An Slide Dubh” (Dubh is the Irish for black). During this current recording I felt it was too short on it’s own so I baked this second one while Martin and Caoimhín were tuning up.

Caoimhín likes Sliabh Luachra music very much. Sliabh Luchra is located along the Cork Kerry Border and has a special place for slides and polkas. It is the music we dance to, in the main, around here.

I recorded these tunes with Martin Hayes and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh on the Triúr album.  
Price: 15.00
