  1. An auction site that I have found very good is Thesaleroom.com It consolidates auction rooms from all over the UK and beyond.. You will usually find one or 2 concertinas there. At the moment there is well over a dozen since Gardiner Houlgate (auction house) have just published their catalogue for their qiuarterly musical instrument auction. They usually have a few Wheatstones and Jeffries in their sales.. but also Banjo's, Mandolins, Flutes and tons on fiddles.. you can go direct to their site and see what they sold in the past.. The saleroom also allow you to listen live to some auctions over t'internet and online bidding.. The ultimate time waster..
  2. Saw the Westerner (1940) at the weekend , starring Gary Cooper and Walter Brennan as Judge Roy Bean.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNlWcdCbb7c at 1:17:25 there is a Mexican band with Fiddle, Guitar and Concertina.. If the guy is playing it then its all the hand not on camera..
  3. Ireland is awash with festivals all summer long, http://fleadhcheoil.ie/ The All Ireland Fleadh is a week long festival of Irish traditional Music (and lots more besides) running from 10th - 17thin Sligo. Lots of concerts, sessions, and classes/workshops to suit all abilities. It gets very busy on the weekend when the competitions get under way. The Ballyshannon folk festival will usually happen about the beginning of August, and is very close by. Website not up and running yet for this years event, but they usually have big named acts. Check this later or see what was there last year. http://ballyshannonfolkfestival.com/
