Sarah Flynn has had her concertina stolen at Piazza SMN, Florence, Italy. It is a distinctive instrument, a Jeffries Anglo Concertina with 56 keys and 4 rows. 

Please keep an eye out.

Very  sad news  indeed.


But is there a lesson  to be learned  from this ?   Perhaps the thief was after  the camera  or just an Adidas Bag!!    I have often  carried a concertina in a  camera  bag, in fact I have a LowePro  rucksack  that looks as if it would  be carrying  some expensive  photographic  equipment  but instead their are  compartments for two  concertinas.


Other than  the incident  when a concertina (in its  normal  concertina box)  was stolen from between the feet  of  one unfortunate  player  as he chatted  to friends  after a session  at the Willie Clancy Summer School,  I would suggest  the safest  carrying case  for a concertina  is one bearing an image  of a  small accordion externally.  What  ordinary crook  wants to fence a  squeeze box ?


Good luck with  its recovery.

Is it a coincidence that an instrument matching this description is listed today on this web site under "for sale"?
