i was gonna submit this seeing as i FOUND it! :-( :-/

hmph

CD: “Echoes Of Erin: Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann Concert Tour 2006”

https://thesession.org/recordings/display/2502

I take it that the slide is one of the ‘gan ainm’ tunes of track 17? Let me know which one and I’ll try to get Red Crow to add the name so the link is made, though it is just as likely to link to the reel. :-/

:-D Heh, heh, heh!!! Dow made me do it… :-P

Besides,I didn’t like your transcription ~ :-P Actually, I was worried we’d be subjected to another of your compositions if you built up credit. Only kidding, I think? :-/ :-D But, if you send me a bunch of ABCs for your compositions and I happen to like one, I’ll add it and you’re home free… Now for the real question, can you trust me with your babies?

I’d transcribed the Sliabh Notes tunes ages back and was sure I’d already submitted them. However, it is a particularly nice setting, and more folks are likely to have that recording than the "Echoes of Erin"… Mind you, I’d like to hear what they do with it. So, since you didn’t mention it ~ WHO ARE THE MUSICIANS?

But, if it’s a pirated copy you’ve got, and you don’t actually have the notes for it - - - - :-( GRRRRRR!

Eimear Buckley - concertina

Pádraig King - button accordion

Siobhán Ní Chonaráin - flute

Geraldine O’Callaghan - fiddle

was just about to post the details i have the disc, I recognised King’s box playing almost straight away, he has such a good way with slides … plenty of good clips of him online. here’s a good ‘un

and haha i’ll wire a few of my tunes over then! :-p see what you make of em ‘c’!

Nice clip, thanks, I enjoyed that…

Well I ♥ Dow, I’m still waiting to give your tunes some time… ;-)
