GOOD FOLKS: Having only recently figured out how to access and -- more significantly -- respond to
postings on the new forum site, I am preparing a response to some of the recent postings by James Plamondon. More specifically, I will be responding to (1) his queries about why the concertina lost popularity (about which I believe he is way off base); (2) his notions about meantone tuning and the layout of the buttons on the English concertina; and (3) his somewhat -- what shall I call them? -- unfair charges that the CSFRI is "hiding" its collection of English concertina music from the Victorian period.
I hope to get to it all either tomorrow or the next day (by the weekend at the latest).
