  1. In another thread Bill N wrote .... " Posted Friday at 12:17 AM Snip, ... Snip, ...... I'm enjoying playing this and other recently composed pieces in the tradition (Mrs. Saggs & Polpero Bay for instance) that make one stretch a bit compared to some of the more straight-forward tunes in the traditional repertoire." Mrs SAGGS I have already but the reference to POLPERRO BAY intrigued me so I searched it out and listened to it on sound cloud here : ... Polperro Bay I rather liked it, so can anyone direct me towards the sheet music?? regards Jake
  2. Hi Petey, welcome to Concertina.net. I think AMMOON is the retailer not the make of concertina. Is this what you purchased?? ..... https://www.amazon.co.uk/ammoon-Concertina-20-Button-Anglo-Style/dp/B01G52W0OU Jake
  3. Hi "Grabman" You don't say if you are Anglo or English. ... It makes a difference! Me, I'm anglo. I run an easy/slow session for all instruments, playing from the dots and meeting weekly on Tuesday evenings, 20:30, at the TIGER INN, Lairgate, Beverley. .. except the first Tuesday of the month when the MG car club have the room. However, on Tuesday 03rd December we are meeting in the front poolroom of the MONKSWALK, Highgate, Beverley, 20:00 onwards and there'll be no more sessions until 07th January. (The TIGER has too many xmas meals booked.) Soo ... if you're free this next Tuesday, come along and meet some musicians (they don't bite), and see how the session works. There's generally an English player there as well. I'll set them to work and we can talk concertinas? Jake

  6. It looks to me as if the original insert has pulled out! How is the other side fixed?? In order for the replacement insert to be secure you may need to fill the hole & re-drill for the new insert Jake
  7. Brilliant playing & a brilliant introduction to the English concertina, .... BUT Did you notice the unusual way he holds it?? Most players of the EC that I know hold it with the rows of buttons horizontal, thumb in the strap & little finger on the rest. With Simon, the strap quite loose on his thumb and has been adjusted & re-fixed with a slight twist, the concertina is rotated so that the buttons slant upwards at 45 degrees and I didn't see him use his little finger at all!

  8. Is this the one you mean??? "The JAMESTOWN Homeward Bound" Jake

  12. From "BOXING the COMPASS", by Roy Palmer, - Sea Songs and Shanties. In the notes to this song says, .... If not the fastest of the Western Ocean packets, the DREADNAUGHT of the Red Cross Line was arguably the best known. She was built at Newburyport, Massachusetts, and at 1,413 tons register was a large ship for the time. ... She was wrecked off Cape Horn in 1869. ...The song may have derived from the FANCY FRIGATE (No 98 in this book) which was current from some 20 years earlier. The two songs shared the tune of 'King John and the Abbot of Canterbury' and the DREADNAUGHT was also sung to versions of 'The Bold Princess Royal. ... ' see here for a picture ... Wrecksite Jake
  13. Ahoy Roger! Both books should be available from Charlie via his website, here : http://www.charlieipcar.com indeed samples of both can be seen here : http://www.charlieipcar.com/songs_of_cfs_sample.pdf and here : http://www.charlieipcar.com/uncommon_sailor-songs_sample.pdf Ooops! Posted before I'd finished! Curses on this new fangled forum! As for her own books she was of course a poet & author, so no scores in her own books. In the first quarter of the 20th century about 20 of her poems were adapted for singing by well known composers of the day and they were also used by the BBC in their early broadcasts of the late 1920s. There is a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/193746917452633/?fref=ts but there's not a great deal of activity. Jake

  15. Okay-y-y. 192.com has a list of Patricia Luckhursts here ... http://www.192.com/atoz/people/luckhurst/patricia/ I've not made use of this site but I guess that if you register etc. you may get access to more detailed information such as full address & phone no. ?? As for face book, many people are on it but never check it. Edit: checking CONCERTINA.NET membership lists shows three members with "trish" in their 'name', one is in Ireland leaving two possibles??? regards Jake
