Willie Fourie and Manie Bodenstein are two of the finest Anglo players in South Africa. Manie replaced Willie as “Honorary President” of the Boer Music Guild on the 9th October 2004 during a Boer Music Festival held near Pretoria. It was attended by well over 1000 people. I attached a photograph – Willie is in front holding his Wheatstone Linota No. 50882 that dates back to 1938. Manie’s favorite Concertina is a 36 key Wheatstone No. 52250 built in 1948. These two gentlemen were major role players in keeping Concertina music alive in South Africa.
