“Johnny Boyle’s” is a slide I learned from the playing of Derek Hickey and Liam Flanagan, on the compilation album from the Corofin Trad Festival. Apart from being an amazing accordion player, Derek is a real gentleman and it is always such a treat to see and hear him at festivals.
I also associate this tune with another accordion player from Limerick, Donie Nolan, who is a regular visitor to Doolin and I always enjoy playing this tune with him, which is usually followed by another slide called “Con Cassidy’s“.
