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”.

Imelda Roland’s

“Imelda Roland’s” is without a doubt one of my favourite reels. I learned if from the playing of concertina player Claire Keville, who recorded it on the album “An Trí is a Rian” with John Weir and Eithne Ní Dhonaile. In the sleeve notes of the album, Claire explains that she was told by Imelda Roland’s daughter that her mother used to lilt this tune while boiling potatoes for the pigs. The tune was picked up and made popular later by Joe Cooley and her brother Raymond Roland.

Lilting Banshee (The)

“The Lilting Banshee” is a very common session jig and it was the second tune I ever learned. My friend Stéphane taught it to me on tin whistle during my first summer in Doolin, back in 2006.
