I learnt a tune called 'The Schooner Rag' from a chap at Sidmouth FF say, 33years ago. He wrote the tune & was a good Anglo player and worked at the maritime museum in Boston Mass. 

I still play the tune, and want to credit the chap. So if anyone knows who it was please let me know. 

Thanks Phil 'Willum'  N.Cornwall UK

Is it this 'un Willum? https://www.youtube....h?v=CXmTChUB4_w

 

If it is, then Bob Webb is credited.

By the bearded cringe, yes it is the very tune. Thanks Andy it may well have been Bob Walser that I learned it from. Well spotted.

You're welcome. I was amused by the bloke behind the 'tina players clutching his ears in anguish - what a Philistine!

I believe the "Philistine" is Ian Robb, a very fine folklorist, singer and concertinist in his own right.  Unlikely to be disrespecting the music, perhaps just trying to preserve his hearing.  It's a glorious, but loud and strident, growl coming from those two concertinas, and in very close proximity to his head!

Thank you, very nice.

What is Bob playing? It looks like a recent build, but I thought Bob played Maccann so is somebody making new Maccanns?

Does anyone know who I could contact to find sheet music/notation for this?   This is a bit more complicated than I can sound out by ear.  I would miss too much of the nuance in the harmony parts.

I note that Jeff and Rob have played together.

Since no one else has chimed in, I remember him telling me, one of the last times I saw him, that it was a custom order. I'm thinking from Dipper, but can't recall for certain.
