I am here to confess that "other" instruments have kept me away from my beloved Eng concertina for far too long,
so long in fact that I have no idea where to begin to get back in the groove. When I played more ofter, it was
Morris and tunes taken from John Kirkpatrick via Brass Monkey, plus some Irish tunes I picked up along the way.

Any and all suggestions on "newer" CDs? Oh, I must add, that I'm rusty as an old tin can, so "easier" tune
suggestions would be even MORE welcome.

Glad to be back!

well, i don't know how "new" all these are, but what about "English International"?

i am enjoying Rachel Hall's EC tracks on these two cds by Simple Gifts:


also listening to Mark Gilston's EC tracks on the irresistibly titled "Troll Road":

Alistair Anderson's Concertina Workshop is on CD now.

Is that not DVD ? Or is that some other issue of Alistair's ? Pertaining to the DVD that is currently being avertised on Ebay; A master class by the look of it.

Anything by Rob Harbron is always inspirational - try the two Dr Faustus CDs, or the 'Station house' CD by Kett, Fagan & Harbron for example.
