Sligo Maid (The)

The Sligo Maid is one of the most common reel in Irish traditional music. I associate this tune with two musicians in the area : Seán Vaughan, the great box player from Kilmaley, and Christy Barry, whistle and flute player from Ennistymon.

I recorded this tune with Adrian McMahon (flute) and Pat Dowling (keyboard) in a little video for the Micilín Conlon Memorial Weekend 2020. Watch the video below, it’s the last tune in the set!
