"Finbarr Dwyer’s Slide"

This features on a favourite listen, "“Jack Talty & Cormac Begley: Na Fir Bolg”, track 6. While they have it listed as a set of polkas, they play this last one heavily swung into a ‘slide’, and this notation is from that playing. I’ll also add it in a 2/4 polka form for comparison… However they play it, this is one very sweet recording, the sort of thing I’d give as a Christmas gift ~ to family or friends with the interest who haven’t yet the pleasure. It’s inspirational stuff.
