who played these slides ?

I heard the following three slides, played in this order, on a clip lifted from a Clare FM program by a friend. He wasn’t able to provide any other info. I’ve found a name(s) for the second slide (Cnoc Na Glarac, An Bhrosna, Brosna #2, Padraig O’Keefe’s). But I’m less interested in the tune names, and more interested in who might have played this set, and on what recording, so I could purchase the CD. There was fiddle and box, with piano joining in on the second and third tunes.

Clare FM

Do you have information on when the recording was made, when the programme was airing?

Re: who played these slides ?

Sorry, the fellow that gave me this recording didn’t even know whose program it was on Clare FM that played it. I will give another look in the recordings to see if I can find one with Kevin McHugh’s No. 1 as the last tune in the set.

Re: who played these slides ?

I’ve already checked here without luck. The curious one at the beginning, suspected that it’s a more recent composition, suggests to me it may have just been a one off live for set for the program. There is the possibility though it might have made it to YouTube? But, who knows for sure, sorry I don’t. Best of luck finding it, and if you do don’t forget to add the information here, and if it’s a recording not yet in the database that would be welcome too…

Re: who played these slides ?

If that first tune is Dáithín Davy’s, there is one listed recording that I can find:
http://www.nattceol.org/wiki/A+Night+of+Irish+Music+to+Remember

Track 1, CD2.

Dáithín Davy (Lenihan?) was apparently a musician from , I think, the Mountcollins area in Limerick. not far from Brosna in Kerry.

Re: who played these slides ?

Thanks, ceolachan, for your dogged research ! I’ll go for that CD, you may be right about that track. And if not, it still looks like a worthwhile addition to my collection.

You are very welcome.

Re: who played these slides ?

And a belated "Thank You" to Weejie for equally thorough research ! Sorry about that…
