Slide Dubh by Peadar Ó Riada
This recently written slide by Peadar Ó Riada can be found on the album "Triúr Sa Draighean" by Peadar Ó Riada, Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh & Martin Hayes. (https://thesession.org/recordings/display/3680).
A pdf of the tune, as well as others from that album, are also available on Peadar Ó Riada’s site at http://www.peadaroriada.ie/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=89&Itemid=90
Performed on Geantrai
This tune was performed on TG4’s Geantrai programme on December 12, 2010. The musicians were Aoife and Deirdre Grainbheal, and Una Ni Ghuidhir.
Peadar no doubt thought he came up with this tune, but please compare with "Bridgie Con Matt’s" slide recorded by Tim Collins and earlier by The Monks of the Screw in 1995 and apparently collected from Bridget Murphy, sister of Denis Murphy and Julia Clifford. This would predate Peadar’s composition by some years.
Notation on the Peadar O Riada web site
The links to some of Peadar O Riada’s tunes, at the address given above, are not working. I was unable to download the PDFs for the jigs Spórt/Fiach and The Slides, although some of the other tunes were accessible. I have contacted Peadar twice about this but no response (yet), Sean Quinn 28/10/2014.
That was quick ! Peadar has fixed the links now. Thank you.
