  1. You can do some level of batch editing tags ( never used labels ). From eg the “All scores” list ... do “edit” top right and select multiple files. Then “edit” on the row of options across the top of the list Which takes you to a “batch edit” dialogue where you can assign a tag to all files selected. Hopefully this makes sense, if it doesn’t, the let me know and I’ll have another go.
  2. Apologies if this is already “known”, but this painting https://www.ashmoleanprints.com/image/221380/william-holman-hunt-london-bridge-on-the-night-of-the-marriage-of-the-prince-and-princess-of-wales features what looks like a lad in a sailor uniform playing Concertina ( foreground .. about 1/3 of the way from the left ). Attached is a not-very-high-res enlargement. The original painting was apparently done in 1863/4.

  7. London & Glasgow / Edinburgh are definitely not my areas of expertise - but for Cambridge, I'd look at Paul Hardy's list since he lives around there.
  8. Do you know what area(s) you are intending to visit yet ... ? Might help with making local suggestions ......
  9. Here's the layout of my 38 key C/G - quite similar to those others shown here
  10. I asked someone from WCCP - but the name didn't ring any bells :-(
  11. Thanks Adrian. I was thinking about getting that note changed to something more useful, I’ll think seriously about that A. Andrew
  12. My Jeffries; like Adrian's; has Bb/G# on button 10 and F#/F on button 7c But this prompts me to ask - what do you have on button 1b - I have an F#/G# The pushed F# is obviously very useful .... but that pulled G# means I have two of those ( and the normal pushed one on 3a ) I'd be interested to learn what your instruments have ? Andrew
