There are at least three concertina players in Oregon, but we seem to be a little spread out from each other. I live in Gold Beach and have been playing English concertina for about two years. I took some time off to play button accordion, but kept being drawn back to the concertina.
I play fiddle tunes, mostly, and chose the English instrument because I love the old timey tunes the best and several of them are in A. It's lonely here in Gold Beach. I havent been able to find anyone close to play with.
BTW, my name is Mike
