As you asked, I posted three years ago several links to galician tunes that we recorded in video live for the launch of the third album by Pancho Álvarez one of the most talented galician folk musicians. We play with him from time to time when he has enough time if he isn't doing gigs with the famous galician piper Carlos Nuñez.

The concertina isn't very well played for several reasons but the tunes are fine.


You can see them in you tube searching for Pancho Alvarez or with the direct links

http://www.youtube.c...feature=related "ahi vai" and "a miña burriña", 2/4 and a foliada or xota.

Another tune in which I play the concertina is in this arrangement of a galician muiñeira and a carballesa (we added to it a minor part) that we played many years ago when we founded Felpeyu, I played the tunes with uilleann pipe then and as it  hasn't the sensible, C #, note below D, we had to change a bit some notes of the tune.




I posted links to tunes (only music) recorded with pipes, bouzouki, concertina and flute by us about ten years ago in the topic about playing small pipes melodies with the concertina, in the general discussion forum by Jody Kruskal.


Thankyou in advance for your interest in our music.
