HI - any concertina enthusiasts within easy reach of Totnes, in south Devon, UK. I am this year - after many years of playing in bands - embqrking on solo gigs. The first is at Totnes Folk Club  this coming Thursday, April 10(Dartmouth Inn, 8pm). It would be great to meet other squeezers. I shall be playing several different vintage Crane Duets and singing some of my own songs, Cornish, Irish and English folk - and probably some Jimmie Rodgers and 1920's / 30's jazz.

Also in Devon  -  my next gig after that is at The George Hotel music venue in South Molton , on Friday, April 25. Do pop along if you are in the area.On that occasion- a slightly bigger venue - I shall be using a PA, so any 'tina players interested in amplifying their instruments might be intrigued with the double clip-on mic' solution I have come up with.

I'm still new enough to this whole concertina thing that the phrase "solo duet concertina gig" sounds like an oxymoron at first. :-)
