I don’t have the recording you transcribed this from, G.M., so I’m not at all questioning your ear, but I’ve more often heard bar 2 of the B Part as |e2 fg2 f efd cBA|.

Nice tune.

Padraig O"Keefe’s Slide

The Slides are the last track on the Bakerswell LP & are said to come from the playing of Padraig O"Keefe.

The 2nd one is already posted here as Bowna:
https://thesession.org/tunes/3829

But what is the name of this first one?

Spot on TomR - Ta muchly!

Dervish

My transcription from Dervish:

d2B AFA ded d2A|def gfe fed BAB|
d2B AFA ded d2e|1f2b afd efe dfe:|2f2b afd efe def||
~g3 bge ~f3 afd|e2f afe fed BAB|
d2B AFA ded d2e|1f2b afd efe def:|2f2b afd efe dfe||

An oft repeated phrase ~ there’s a dup over here ~ 😏

Padraig O’Keefe’s / Gleanntan Frolics

A slightly different take on it…

added Dervish as setting

I added PJ’s Dervish transcription as a setting… hope that is OK.

Bakerswell Slide No.1

The first of 2 unidentified slides on the "Bakerswell" recording, final track. They had no names for either. If this is here already - which is quite possible - I couldn’t find it.

Re: Gan Ainm

Once again, Johnny O’Leary had two settings of this tune, one is D and one in G. He called it "The Ceangulla Slide". It’s here as another "Padraig O’Keeffe’s Slide" - https://thesession.org/tunes/5215

Re: The Ceangulla

Thanks , Nigel. I’ve edited the title, but maintained the link from the recording because "Bakerswell" play it in "A".

Re: The Ceangulla

Johnny O’Leary’s setting in D resembles what Aly Bain & Phil Cunningham play on their album "Five and Twenty". They call the tune Glentown Frolics #2.

The first tune they play is: https://thesession.org/tunes/16779

The Gleanntan Frolics, X:8

Track 5

At the beginning, a woman seems to say
"Oh great! Two slides of Padraig Clarke’s"
(but could what I’m hearing as Clarke’s be O’Keefe’s ?)
The first slide is https://thesession.org/tunes/16779, this is the second one.
Both slides start with the same notes.
