Chatty concertinist

Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. It’s probably how street view works - two picture tiles joined together, but not quite joining properly. Jake
  2. At auction at Lockdales Auctioneers, Ipswich, Suffolk, U.K. ... on 31st August 2023 Described as ...

  5. Just checked this auction out. Lot 1572 sold for £1900, hammer price. Lots 1570, 1571 & 1573 were unsold, I presume they failed to meet their reserve. Jake

  7. Saw this beast in a post on Facebook at BOEREMUSIEK VIR AFRIKA I guess that it's about 16 inches (41 cms) across the flats with 84 buttons! Jake
  8. "Interesting" is a good word for it! I find the placement of the rhythmical stresses very awkward. The A part is 4 bars & the B part is 8 bars. So ... I've doubled the length of all the notes and inserted extra bar lines to give a tune with A = 8 bars & B = 16 bars. Now it doesn't look so intimidating. I didn't want to be struggling with Eb either so I transposed it to G.

  9. Thank you, Takayuki YAGI, that’s it. It’s strange, how you can look for something for ages & ages and not find it, yet someone else goes straight to it! I was searching again tonight and straight away I found two scores at Musescore.com ~ thats the strange way the web world works. Jake
  10. I'm always on the look out for new/different tunes and here's one called simply "Banks" that intrigues me. It was collected in Durham by Alan Dyer, editor of The International Concertina Association magazine, and published in edition No. 339, 1986, P.12. I can find no other references to it since then and I wondered if anyone here has come across it. For my own use I've transpose it into G & made some other small changes but here it is as published. .... Banks in Eb.pdf and the abc. ..

  11. Well, the box sold for £110, hammer price ( = £143 with buyers premium & tax) The painting sold for £280, hammer price ( = £364 with buyers premium & tax) Jake
  12. Well, the box they are in has a label inside the lid marked :- TONI & TINA, 140 Findon St, Sheffield. A quick Google takes us to The Concertina Museum and a selection of photos of the duo with some of their instruments. Also, From 'Papers of The International Concertina Association; Vol 9, 2012' here; http://www.concertina.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/PICA09-2012.pdf An article titled ' Miniature and Semi-Miniature Concertinas' has the following information "Toni & Tina" (sometimes bill as "Tina and Nita") was the musical variety act of Edward and "Tina" Potts, who performed on miniature, small,7 8 and regular-size English and Maccann duet concertinas, as well as on the xylophone. They previously performed in "The Concercordions and Nita," a concertina-accordion-xylophone act led by Edward's father, concertinist G. W. Potts (see Fig.A2.7).7<? Some of the concertinas have the name plate G.W.POTTS on them, which of course must be his father. Jake
