Slide - Mendicity

Mendicity is full of depth and creativity, and is arguably Slide’s finest work to date. Every track adds a newly discovered colour to a meticulously selected palette. This is the first studio album to feature the silken vocals of Dave Curley, and includes the hit song ‘The Bird’, penned by Irishman Martin Denning.

With tunes from the Fleischmann collection appearing on an audio recording for the first time in carefully crafted instrumental numbers, the band introduces fresh sounds with exquisite accompanying soundscapes. Collectively Daire Bracken, Aogán Lynch, Mick Broderick, Dave Curley and Éamonn de Barra have given us a flavour of what the new generation are capable of. The tradition is in safe hands!

Daire Bracken: Fiddle & Strings
Aogán Lynch: Concertina
Mick Broderick: Bouzouki, Mandolin & Percussion
Éamonn De Barra: Flute, Whistle, Keyboard & Bodhrán
Dave Curley: Vocals, Guitar, Banjo & Mandolin
Guest Musician: Peter Eades on Bass tracks & Synth on track 11
