Musician first! I love music... it is the universal language of the soul! I played the crane duet system for a few years then switched to the English. I love it! It is a perfect fit! I played classical to Jazz to Blues to Funk as a bassist and am now learning to squeeze them out.
With my technical background, I seem to have the talent for repairing concertinas too. I guess like most, I had to learn out of necessity. Need a cracked reed pan fixed, a new reed tongue or maybe some leather skived... Contact me. I have collected the materials to build entire concertinas to fulfill my dream of owning a 56B model 14 Baritone Treble. There always seems to be a missing ingredient: time, money or a place to work. One day it will happen and it will be awesome!
