  1. Is there anything I could do to help. By day I'm a web developer and would be happy to volunteer a bit of assistance with problems as time allows.
  2. Hi Dan, Very happy to send copies to ICA - could you message me appropriate contact details please? Regards Christian
  3. This may be of interest to those of a morris persuasion. Several years ago in Oxfam, Cambridge I picked up a two disk set of 78s of Kenneth Loveless playing some Headington morris tunes on Anglo. It appears to be a private pressing made by EFDSS. What was of more interest to me at the time was that the sleeve was hand made and hand printed / painted, and on further inspection had the words "To Peter from Royston Christmas 1965" in letraset on the reverse. Didn't take much to put two and two together and conclude Peter was Peter Bellamy, Anglo Concertina player and member of The Young Tradition and Royston was Royston Wood of the same band. Peter Bellamy was the reason I started playing Anglo. I contacted Peter's widow who confirmed the record was his and that he had a crate of belongings stolen in a house move several years earlier where he lost a record collection and she allowed me to keep this record. I've attached a snapshot of the sleeve for those who may be interested. I've posted videos of the four sides as below: Twenty Ninth of May: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2iAqunrTrqQ& Rodney: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6r3Vh_Lky5k Jockey to the Fair: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6iHlOjWvBow Morris Reel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_L6kOjp8B4 Hope some people find this interesting.

  4. I've been having a problem looking at the forums from a mobile devices for a few months now. I can get to the forum index but can't access individual boards and am seeing an Internal Server Error (500). I have tested this on Chrome on an Samsung Note S3 and on Safari using an iPhone 7 and the problem exists on both. Not sure if anyone has realised this so thought I'd flag it up. Regards Christian
  5. I came across this photo in an antique shop today as a part of a Victorian Photo Album. The Photo, dated through clothes to be around 1878 - 1882, shows a studio portrait of a family taken by the Luton photographer Frederick Thurston. I haven't fully scrutinised the album yet, but it appears that the family in question are possibly identified elsewhere in the album, and are possibly English. It seems unusual to have a Bandoneon in England in this period so I just wondered if anyone may have any thoughts / comments? Cheers Christian
