Please keep an eye out.

Thanks!

***STOLEN CONCERTINA***
My concertina was stolen from Piazza SMN, Florence,Italy. It is a Jeffries 47Key (4 row) concertina. It was in a navy adidas bag along with my Nikon D90 camera. Could you please share this post and if anyone has any information could you please let me know. Thank you.

Very sad news indeed.

 

But is there a lesson to be learned from this ? Perhaps the thief was after the camera or just an Adidas Bag!! I have often carried a concertina in a camera bag, in fact I have a LowePro rucksack that looks as if it would be carrying some expensive photographic equipment but instead their are compartments for two concertinas.

 

Other than the incident when a concertina (in its normal concertina box) was stolen from between the feet of one unfortunate player as he chatted to friends after a session at the Willie Clancy Summer School, I would suggest the safest carrying case for a concertina is one bearing an image of a small accordion externally. What ordinary crook wants to fence a squeeze box ?

 

Good luck with its recovery.

Is it a coincidence that an instrument matching this description is listed today on this web site under "for sale"?
