Con Cassidy’s (Slide)

I learned this “Con Cassidy’s Slide” from the playing of Derek Hickey & Liam Flanagan. They recorded it on the fantastic compilation album from the Corofin Trad Festival “Teach Cheoil”. I had the pleasure to play a few tunes with Derek during Willie Clancy 2014 in a very quiet setting and it was a great experience, such a great musician, so thank you Derek.
First slide of the set is “Johnny Boyle’s”.

Jolly Tinker (The)

I learned “The Jolly Tinker” from Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham at a session in McGann’s Pub. It is a great 5-part session tune and lately I’ve heard it a lot as part of a set that Kevin Griffin, Noel O’Donoghue and Sean Vaughan play together : Colonel Frazer, The Bucks of Oranmore & The Jolly Tinker.
