Slide, called "traditional musicians with attitude" by the Irish Times, will be in town next week to perform at the Juneau-Doulgas High School auditorium.
Since their debut album, The Flying Pig, which earned them the Best Newcomer distinction in 2001, the band has release four CDs and traveled extensively throughout Europe and the US.
The band performs 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, at the JDHS auditorium. Tickets are available at the JACC and Hearthside Books.
Slide, made up of concertina virtuoso Aogán Lynch, fiddler-guitarist Daire Bracken, bouzouki and mandolin player Mick Broderick, pianist-flautist Éamonn de Barra, also won the Music Network's Young Musicwide Award in 2005. The band has recently been joined by Galwegian Dave Curley on vocals, guitar, mando and bodhrán.
Band members include some of the youngest artists from bands that have stretched across a few generations, from Dé Danann, Stocktons Wing, and Liam Clancy's Band to Damien Dempsey Band and Danú.
