At the bottom of this short blog post about my mother in law (who passed away earlier this week), is a video of me playing an original composition on my Concertina Connection Peacock. I guess you could watch it directly on Youtube too, but I thought maybe the context provided by the essay could be interesting?

 

Best,

steven

Thanks for sharing the tune & background, Steven! May you succeed with the contest...

 

Best wishes to you both - Wolf

 

P.S.: loved the acrobatic start and ending too... :)

I enjoyed  the little history and the playing.!

 

The first time I have heard a Peacock.... sounds pretty good to me!

 

Sorry for your loss and good luck with that competition,

Geoff.

My wife inherited that when her father died. We don't know much about it other than that it belonged to her grandfather, and a friend of ours told us that it's a reproduction of the actual version of whatever it is supposed to be (I forget!) ...
