Rather belatedly I'm announcing the 2010 Arran Concertina Event, here on the lovely Isle of Arran, Scotland, from 8th to 11th October.
Details in the attached file, but briefly, The Arran Concertina Event is a relaxed and informal gathering of concertina players of all abilities, and anyone else who is concertina-tolerant. Other instrumentalists and non-players are welcome. The main feature of the programme is that there is no programme! Themes and groups will depend entirely on the wishes and abilities of those taking part.
Please message me here, or contact me using the details in the attached form if you wish to know more, and hope to see you soon!

We hope to see you there if we get back from Canada in time - will try to get some tunes or something organised for a 'workshop' - always better to sort it out beforehand! How about the ICA Library tunes from the new 'Royal Concertina Band' play list? Can we do that Jeremy?

Posted Image Just looked Kilmory up on Google Maps, the Bunkhouse is bigger than I thought Posted Image How often do the buses run from Brodick please? Not having a car I'm looking up train/ferry/bus combinations to see how long/how much the journey would be from the North Yorkshire coast.

Cheers Ann

Hi Ann!
There is a bus from every boat to Kilmory, but either we could arrange a lift for you with someone else bringing a car over on the same boat as you plan to travel, or I'll gladly meet you off the ferry. Ferry journey, 55 minutes from Ardrossan to Brodick, bus journey to Kilmory Hall around 50 minutes.
Please contact me if you need more information.
All the best and hope to see you in October!
Samantha

I have only just spotted this and Jeremy is away for a bit but I am sure that the answer is, yes, you can use some of the tunes that were played at Dungworth. (I am planning to use a couple of them at the dotty session on the Friday evening at the start of Concertinas at Witney.) Please tell people that they were extracted from the ICA library but go ahead and do it!

Not being a sight reader ( I can follow the dots ...... but slowly ) would the tunes be available to listen to before getting off the ferry to Arran ? Posted Image

Hi Anne
I would certainly hope to circulate both dots and sound files before the event begins ...
Cheers!
