  1. I'm looking at the impressive concert by Thoumire & Milligan:



    There's a triple of songs starting at 7:48 in the concert:
    "The bonny lass of Fisherrow", "Love in a Village" and "The Ballachulish walkabout".


    I'm not really finding much information about the "Love in a Village" except

    for an opera:


    Is that piece from that opera? Anyone have any more information?

    Thanks in advance,


  2. I'm playing Scottish Urbaine and some other Scottishes in a folk band.

    The accents should be on 2 and 4 in that genre and I have a hard time

    achieving that on the concertina at that speed.

    Does anybody have a link or reference to a concertina player that does that?


  3. Something that I always wondered about the Mccann's. Why is the layout not symmetrical

    going up a column e.g. on the right hand side, column 3 you have A,E,A,E and then suddenly B,E,B...

    for practicing too. I can't see the benefit of playing along with ABC, Midi or any of those

    formats when better tools are available.


  5. Hi Sean,

    Layout is standard 30 key Jeffries. I prefer setting up a google+ chat to show you the instrument

    and let you hear it. That's mainly cause I know where my webcam is, I have no idea where

    my camera is, nor the usb thingy that let's me attach it to the computer and I'm on Linux and

    I alway have to figure out how gcamera works....
