Chatty concertinist

Chatty concertinist (4/6)

  1. I remember when I was waiting for my concertina to arrive I found it really helpful to download a keyboard layout chart (do you know whether your concertina has Jeffries or Wheatstone layout?) so that I could get familiar with where the notes were.
  2. @mike_s, you may already be aware of it but Caitlín has two websites for lessons, her original Irish Concertina Lessons one, and also her more recent one that focuses on teaching session tunes, with the ability to slow sections down, loop parts etc.: https://learnirishtunes.com/ @Notemaker, surely it wouldn't be too difficult for you to have the courtesy to spell Caitlín's name correctly?
  3. Cheers Peter! I was just wondering today when registration would open for the 2024 programme, just sent mine in now!
  4. Just a heads up that you're replying to a ten year old "for sale" listing....
  5. Oh, well done! I had a Tedrow that I picked up second hand when I first attempted to start learning the concertina and I always regretted selling it.
  6. The original post is from over two years ago so I'd reckon that the mandolin in question may have sold by now.
  7. There were three adult specific classes, so not sure if the remaining classes (I think someone mentioned during the week that there were 23 concertina classes) were kids only or a mix of kids/adults but it sure seemed like every other child I walked by during the week was carrying a concertina case!
  8. Forgive my ignorance here but are you affiliated with the Irish Concertina Company? That was the impression I got from older posts you've made.
  9. Caitlín is doing a bellows roll in the video - she plays the note, then jerks the bellows to sound it again, and then plays the note again if that makes sense, not a great description on my part, maybe someone else familiar with the technique can describe it more clearly?
  10. It has concertina reeds and from everything I've heard about them I would think it would be categorised as an advanced instrument.
  11. There was an advert on DoneDeal for a Thomas C/G 30b anglo, it was still up the last time I did a search for concertinas there (the day before yesterday) If I recall correctly the ad said that the concertina is at Custy's in Ennis being sold on consignment.
  12. OP posted that they've purchased an Edgley and are awaiting it's arrival.
  13. Sadly the Button Box closed - only their repair department remains open, so the rentals from them are no more.
  14. Contact Bob Tedrow at Homewood Music - he has a couple of nice second hand hybrid 30 button anglos listed in your price range: http://hmi.homewood.net/concertinas/
  15. Good to know, but since people may be reading this thread who are either: 1) Unfamiliar with Irish traditional music and 2) Unfamiliar with the aforementioned previous thread, then for their benefit it can't hurt to mention that it's probably more common than not for players to tap their foot audibly when playing irish traditional music, just in case someone new to the tradition would interpret Don's comment as meaning that the practice is frowned upon.
