Has any one got the words for "Slip Jigs and Reels." I think it was done by Steve Tilson.

"I didn't like the ladies, the rise and the fall of their their ankles and dresses all on the dance floor."

A great song. Done well by Finn MacGinty with Dale Russ on their CD SETANTA.

Cheers, S. in Seattle

I heard it done by the author, Steve Tilson at Old Songs Fest. & was floored, can't imagine it any better than that, I even spotted my daughter (who's not a fan of folk music) with her ears perked up. Barry

Steve Tilson didn't seem to think Bellamy 'murdered it' still I suppose it's a matter of taste.

P.B. was/is an acquired taste or no taste or a taste for ruining a brilliantly composed ballad but then some folk are too polite to be honest.I go with Steve's and fairport's versions way ahead of P.B.'s. love free speech.

I love Peter Bellamy's stuff, but I don't think he did a great version of this song. Especially because I've heard Barry Gleeson's version, which is amazingly good. Unfortunately, I don't expect too many of you will have ever heard BG's Path Across the Ocean CD, which is your loss! Martina

Even ignoring the name .... I agree completely! Barry does a great job on it. In Ireland the only comparable one is to see Luke Cheevers singing it live, and dancing his way through the chorus with the nearest good-looking woman!
