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”.

Boys of Bluehill (The)

“The Boys of Bluehill” is one of the most common tune in Irish Music. Some would say it is only a beginner tune, but I think it is a beautiful hornpipe. This is the version we play around Doolin, I think I got it from Terry Bingham. I like playing this tune with flute player Adrian McMahon, he usually plays it after “The Good Natured Man”.
