The Details tab has this listed as being on Dan Beimborn’s "Shatter the Calm" album but that track actually has a polka of the same name, not this slide.
Dale Russ plays this on Irish Fiddle. James Morrison recorded it in the 20s as a Schottische with the title Highland Bonnet.
The Chieftains 4: Medley - part 4
I think of this tune as The Weavers (slide). That’s what it’s called on The Chieftains 4 (their finest album, IMHO). Listen to Track 12 (medley): O’Keeffe’s Slide/An Súisín Ban/The Star Above The Garter/The Weavers. O’Keeffe’s is a different kettle of fish!
Anyhow, what’s in a name? As long as the notes are right and the feet are tapping …
“The Weaver’s” or “Bill the Weaver’s”
Bill ‘The Weaver’, father to brother and sister Denis Murphy & Julia Clifford/Murphy. The O’Keeffe would be Padraig, and they all knew each other…
X: 3 “Murphy(’s)s’ Slides No.2” ~ Bill, Denis, Julia…
S: “Jimmy Doyle & Dan O’Leary: Traditional Music From The Kingdom Of Kerry”
https://thesession.org/recordings/1247 ~ track 2, the 2nd slide of two.
Q: 148 bpm (1 beat = three quavers/eighth notes)
I have also learned this one direct, as well from other living sources and situations where the average tempos varied from 130 to 150 bpm (1 beat = three quavers/eighth notes)…
Flogging Molly: Black Friday Rule
I’ve noticed that the celtic punk band Flogging Molly plays a slight variation of this slide (with a punk beat) at the end of their song "Black Friday Rule" from their album "Swagger", released in the year 2000.
Bill The Weaver’s, X:4
Here’s a different take on the second part.
