So; in this thread, here is the information for which I am looking:
Professional players aged up to 30. They can be playing concerts, clubs, festivals, or teaching at residential events. Performing either solo, or in groups, using concertina. I’ll accept multi-instrumentalists, too. The key thing is that they are current performers, under the loosest terming of “professional”.
I believe that, as a community, C.net should be promoting our young professional players, as this generation will be in the forefront of continued success for the concertina, otherwise there will be a lot of cheap instruments available in about in 25 years time!
The information will be a “snapshot”, and may be useful to anyone seeking to book these younger performers.
So; can I ask for the following information, please?
Concertina system(s) played
Type(s) of music played
Country or area in which based/performing
Link to website, if known
I’d hope that we might have most of the information available by late December.
Thanks to everyone for their suggestions thus far.
I have added a posting on 3rd December, with a summary of all the names suggested. I am happy to add to this list.
