  1. I have for sale a 30b C/G Anglo concertina made by John Connor. I bought it some years ago from Barleycorn concertinas and immediately had it overhauled by Geoff Crabb. It comes in its original hexagonal box but there is no key. It is priced at £2000 plus postage. I am in Oxford.pm me if you would like to one and try it out.
  2. Hi Al, Do you still have the recording of Nick Robertshaw I gave you some time ago?
  3. I hope that the photo uploaded this time!
  4. This is what I found inside my Jeffries Bros Anglo. According to the 1911 census James Henry Wood was a coal miner, like George Lambert, living at 27 Wilcock Street, Wigan. Do you know any more about him, Geoff?
  5. I am selling a Tredrow Anglo concertina which I had custom built. It is in sunburst mahogany with seven fold bellows. Here is a link to some photos and a video on Bobs web site http://hmi.homewood.net/33bGDand http://hmi.homewood.net/33bGD/33blachenal.mov. There is G drone on the left and an extra button on the middle left hand side is A on the pull and G on the push. On the right hand side first two buttons top row are G# and A# in and out. At the far end of the middle row there is an additional button providing low E and D. This instrument has rarely been played and does not warrant me keeping it. I will sell for £1600 plus postage from Oxford U.K.
  6. I thought folks would like to know that Noel Hill will be giving a concertina workshop in London as part of the Return to Camden Festiavl 2011. It takes place at the London Irish Centre on 29th Oct 2011 between 11am and 1pm. The cost is £10. Noel, Micheál O’Raghallaigh and Paddy Egan will also be performing over the weekend. More info at www.returntocamden.org/
  7. On further investigation of the inside markings I have found a number 10 stamped on each of the reed pans and penciled on each of the action boxes. Did Jeffries Bros concertinas have serial numbers?
  8. Inside my Jeffries there are two repair notes made by J H Wood of 27 Wilcock Street Wigan. One for June 1917 and the other for May 1919. The 1911 Census records James Henry Wood at that address and his occupation is given as a coal miner hewer born 1870. I would like to know more about him. Any information is most welcome.
  9. Concertinas at Witney 2010 starts tonight with a session at the Holly Bush Corn Street, Witney. On Saturday 25th Sept there is a evening concert open to the public featuring John Kirkpatrick, Jody Kuskal, Tim Laycock & Steve Turner et al. £10 on the door of the Main Hall, Henry Box School, Church Green, Witney, Oxon.
  10. Hi Mark, I would be interested depending upon which day it is. Tony. PS Is there a form to fill in for the BTMW this year?
