Hi all,
Anyone know of a recent album recording of Slaney Side or Down by the Tanyard Side? I just need the details from the album. I don't need a copy.
I have plenty of references to traditional singers so I'm just looking for revival singers.

Thanks.

Jim Causley did Tanyard Side on his 'Fruits Of The Earth' album though that was in 2005! Is that recent Steve? I'm of an age when I can regard stuff that I think recent, only to find it was in the last century!

Seán Ó Sé Down By the Tanyard Side https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfFkYf_X-wY
lyrics posted below recording:

Down by the Tanyard Side

I am a rambling hero
And by love I am betrayed,
Near to the town of Baltinglass,
There dwells a lovely maid,
She's fairer than Hypatia bright,
And she's free from earthly pride.
She's a darlin' maid, her dwelling place
Is down by the Tanyard side.

Her lovely hair in ringlets rare
Lies on her snow-white neck,
And the tender glances of her eyes
Would save a ship from wreck.
Her two red lips so smiling
And her teeth so pearly white
Would make a man become her slave
Down by the Tanyard side.

I courteously saluted her
And I viewed her o'er and o'er,
And I said, "Are you Aurora bright
Descending here below?"
"Oh, no, kind sir, I'm a maiden poor,"
She modestly replied,
"And I daily labour for my bread
Down by the Tanyard side.'

So for twelve long years I courted
Her till at length we did agree
For to acquaint her parents
And married we would be.
But 'twas then her cruel father
To me proved most unkind
Which makes me sail across the sea
And leave my love behind.

Farewell, my aged parents,
To you I bid adieu.
I'm crossing the main ocean
All for the sake of you.
But whenever I return
I will make her my bride
And I'll roll her in my arms again
Down by the Tanyard side.
-------------

Mick Maloney and others, "The Green Fields of America" group - on Topic records https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N-KVZFw0I8

Hi all
Thanks for these suggestions.
Reinhard, your website is my first port of call and as I said I have sufficient trad singer references.

I am trying to include as up-to-date recordings as possible but where these don't exist I will go back to about 2000.

Clive, snap!

"The Green Fields Of America" recorded the song in 2009 on their eponymous album -- that's the most recent I've found.
