Silver Slipper, The


Dan Sullivan's Shamrock Band from Boston recorded this tune in 1929 on a 78 RPM record. I came to befriend the band's banjo player, Neil Nolan, back in the '70s, and we had many good times playing music. Neil played his instrument left-handed and was a very confident musician, as can be heard on some of the band’s recordings. Uilleann piper Jerry O'Sullivan recorded the hornpipe for this collection.
