I've re-organised my web site to separate the band Stradivarious from Other Stuff.

This includes a couple of concertina recordings under "Sounds". These are The Mesa written by a friend Steve Hodgskiss and the Winster Morris Reel recorded recently for a friend to practice. Winster is about 30 miles from here.

The re-org also puts the Galpin Wheatstone history article, a trascription of John Kirkpatrick's Anglo Chords article and some concertina waveform diagrams on the "Concertina" link from My Webpage

Howard

Thanks for your tunes. As I could only locate the Winster morris reel, I can only comment on that one. To start with, it sounds very good to me (playing as well as quality of the sound file).
I have some additional questions: Can you give me more details on the key you played and what type/brand of concertina you used? Is there any musical notation of the tune available?

Thanks in advance

Henk

Henk,

I played the Winster Morris Reel in C on a Wheatstone 40 button metal ended C/G anglo. It's a late model in the 50000 series. I've put a graphic of the notation in C and in G on Winster MR in C and Winster MR in G

Sorry about the reference to the Mesa. It's an extract from a CD I recorded with a band called High Jinks so it can be found at The Mesa. This was played in G on a Crabb metal ended C/G which I no longer have.
