Re: The Rubber Band
"That one was originally called the ‘Rubber Band’ after the rubber band, holding my accordion together, which snapped while we were rehearsing. Caoimhin is mainly responsible for any accordion playing I do. I forgot the name when we were writing the sleeve notes for the last cd and called it ‘Caoimhin’s slide’ but it was originally the ‘Rubber Band’." http://www.peadaroriada.ie/ceol-dem-chuid/the-rubber-bands-brother/3964/
