Hi there,

 

in preparation for the upcoming workshop season, I've recorded and uploaded a little set I like to play (nothing like last minute panic to keep them old bellows moving):

Still somewhat anemic and could use more dynamics, methinks, but getting there. Thanks for listening.

 

Edit: Replaced the original recording w/ v2.0

Lovely. Brightened up my grey morning, especially the 'Market Rasen'.

Many thanks.

Why thank YOU John! There's not a whole lot more a manufacturer of music (and no, I won't call myself a musician, that would be a disgrace to all of you who are) can ask for than helping someone through the day! :) And coming from somebody of your calibre, it's even more flattering...

Here's another one. Those are rather straightforward pieces, but I find them hard to render appropriately, probably because they *are* uncomplicated:

I upload those even though I know there are shortcomings (and I even believe I know where they are). Why? I don't know; I guess it's as good as I can possibly get at this point (time to practice always appears too short no matter how much one can shell out for it). And hey, maybe someone even likes it, or somebody has new helpful hints for improvement.

 

In any case, thanks for listening!

I uploaded another set:

I learned this one from master concertina player, dance instructor, tune collector and gentleman David Ball about a year ago. This year he brought in another great set which I hope will take me less than a year to, well, at least render recognizably.

 

Thanks for listening, as usual.

FWIW, here's another set I just recorded. It's two jigs introduced by master musician Neil Brookes during this year's German Folk Camp in Zeilitzheim. Formidable pieces. Of course I don't do them the justice they deserve, but hey.

Another one for everybody who might care. This is somewhat of a strange set as the two dances are very different, so they'd not normally combined (at least not in a dance context), but I think they work together well musically:
