Does Anyone Recognize This Concertina?

My dog loves all three, and will often sing along. That's a problem, because it's really hard to play flute or whistle while laughing!

The bones are great. Playing one-handed, I have both the other hand and my mouth free, so I can continure playing while I eat or drink. Funny thing is, I still can't talk at the same time.

Funny, though, she still asks me questions when I'm brushing my teeth....

I hate to contribute to thread creep a second time under this topic's heading, but felt compelled to respond to this question.
I was quite amazed by John William's ability to play concertina and talk at the same time. At the 2004 Friday Harbor Irish Music Camp someone came into the room while John was playing for a class and he engaged them in conversation, starting with "Can I help you" and after a brief exchange he gave them directions to another event on site. He continued playing the whole time and never missed a note.

I can hold converstaions while playing bones (one or two-handed), but my playing will probably get a bit simpler, and I can't follow the other musicians as well, obviously. I pretty much can't talk when playing concertina, except for very short phrases if I'm playing a tune I know really well. But, I've been playing bones for about 9 years, and concertina for only 1 1/2.
