06 SLIDE (04'22) See Thru Blue

Such a bloody disgrace, you keep hiding your face, afraid it might show through.
Can't see through, blue.
Life's meaning's misplaced, deep within your own space,
Let me in too.

I can see from where you are, I'm your witness, you're my star
Up above shining bright, how is it you feel so shite.

Tears ripple clear water, reflects beauty distorted, surface deep it's not even true.
Can't see through, blue.
Lost grip with the border, volumes flowing all over,
Please keep afloat.


Pull away, your pupil's vacuum has no shore.
You couldn't care less, I couldn't care more.

You conceal it with grace, but that won't help displace, the weight that's killing you.
Can't see through, blue.
Don't have your mother's black lace, suck the light from this place,
Please see it through.


Author's Note
The Celtic Tiger may have left some people behind and created some new fat cats but for most it means working ridiculously hard to feed the tiger. This can stretch beyond what is humanly possible and result in problems like stress and depression. Modern Ireland may have new found comforts and money but at what price, our best people and loved ones may end up exploited to the detriment of their health.

Mas o menos, lo de arriba, quiere decir esto:

El Tigre Celta pudo haber dejado alguna gente atrás y creado algunos nuevos peces gordos, pero para la mayoría significa trabajar ridículamente duro para alimentar al tigre. Esto puede sobrepasar los límites de lo humanamente posible y resultar en problemas como el stress o la depresión. La Irlanda moderna pudo haber encontrado nuevos lujos y dinero pero a que precio? Nuestra mejor gente y seres amados pueden terminar siendo exlotados en detrimento de su propia salud.

08 SLIDE (05'47) The Last Waltz

“Slide successfully combined the qualities of traditional Irish music with contemporary musical ideas. They are exceptionally talented and their music has both grace and power”, said celebrated Irish musician-producer Donal Lunny

"Slide combina exitosamente las cualidades de la música tradicional irlandesa con idéas musicales contemporaneas. Son excepcionalmente talentosos y su música tiene tanto gracia como energía" dijo el popular músico y productor Donal Lunny

Y por último (también tomado de su página web) una pequeña bio (por ahora sólo en ingles... perdon!)

The Irish Times calls SLIDE(IRELAND) “traditional musicians with attitude” and credits the group with “bringing drawing room grandeur and high spirits together” with it’s diverse songs ,which range from soulful and sorrowful to contagiously energetic. Folk Roots Magazine proclaims,”There’s plenty of action and flamboyance in Slides’s music,” which merges “swagger with traditional expertise.”

This rollicking band’s origins date back to Ireland in 1999,when Slide performed in various pubs for a local music festival in Bandon, Co. Cork. The group’s intoxicating music easily won over the crowd, which demanded more of the unique and colourful sound. The positive reaction inspired Slide to release The Flying Pig, which Irish Music Magaize hailed as “beautifully recorded, to preserve the brilliance and clarity of solo and ensemble playing that is positively mind-blowing.” The publication awarded Slide its Best Newcomer distinction in 2001, leading to gigs for the band throughout Europe.

In its insightful second album Harmonic Motion, Slide celebrates self-exploration and collective innovation in a series of self-penned songs that drew critical appraise. The record showcases a variety of clever arrangements – from sensitive whistle harmonies to driving, high-powered strings – and captivating lyrics that Irish Music Magazine calls “inventive and provocative.” The publication adds,

“The melodies and musicianship are first-rate. …[Slide] can sing, they can write, they can dance across fingerboards and piano keys, buttons, and bows, and by crikey they can play.”

The album attracted the attention of renowned Irish talents including Grammy-winning composer Bill Whelan, singers and songwriters Liam Clancy, Damien Dempsey and John Spillane, Danú and the Progressive group Stocktons Wing- who eventually recruited Slide for their own music projects.

In 2005, Slide – which consists of concertina virtuoso Aogán Lynch, fiddler-guitarist Daire Bracken, bouzouki and mandolin player Mick Broderick, pianist-flautist Éamonn de Barra – won the Young Musicwide Award. Developed in 2001 by the Arts Council of Ireland, Young Musicwide encourages young people to pursue professional careers in traditional Irish Music, Chamber Music,and Jazz and gives promoters access to the best Irish talents. “Slide successfully combined the qualities of traditional Irish music with contemporary musical ideas. They are exceptionally talented and their music has both grace and power”, said celebrated Irish musician-producer Donal Lunny, who helped judge the competition.

Overneath is their third studio album and saw the band hone their creative abilities. It is an exciting addition to Slide’s previous two recordings with receiving great critical acclaim.

Slide have recently been joined by the greatly talented Galwegian, Dave Curley who joined the group for their hugely successful 2008 US Tours. An expanded line up has provided for an even larger live sound with great new additions in songs and dance. For their fourth CD venture Slide bypassed the studio and recorded where their fans are always most excited, live from the stage.

02 ALTAN (04'23) Donal Agus Morag The New Rigged Ship
03 CARA DILLON (03'06) the maid of culmore

Leaving sweet lovely Derry for fair London town,
There is no finer harbour all around can be found,
Where the youngster's each evening go down to the shore,
And the joy bells are ringing for the maid of Culmore.

The first time I saw her she passed me by,
And the next time that I saw her she bid me goodbye,
But the last time I saw her it breke my heart sore,
For she sailed out of Ireland and away from Culmore.

If I had the power the storms for to rise,
I would make the wind blow out and I'd darken the skies,
I would make the wind blow high and the salt seas to roar,
For the day that my darling sailed away from Culmore.

To the bd part's of Americay my love I 'll go seek,
For it's there I know no-one and no-one knows me,
But if don't find her I'll return home no more,
Like a pilgrim I'll wander for the maid of Culmore.
