  1. Put a duvet over it on your lap. As long as the room you’re in is cool enough. I’ve been doing it for years.
  2. Hello I am selling a 31-button C/G Connor concertina (extra left hand thumb key is a low C on push/pull), purchased new in 1995 from Chris Algar, an English dealer who works with Connor a lot. This instrument has Wheatstone reeds and plays and sounds great; I am reluctantly selling it now that my Carroll number is almost up. Purchased about a year and a half ago from fiddle and concertina player Chris McGrath, who used it to record the 2001 album The Maple Leaf along with Jimmy Noonan, Ted Davis and the late Michael Shorrock. For sounds clips refer to this (can be streamed on Spotify; tracks 8 and 11), or I can send solo sound clips as well. Recently (October 2017) re-tuned and worked on by the great Tony O'Connell. I am looking for $3,500. I am based in Boston USA; please pm me for more information if interested! PS. In the pictures you will notice a couple missing keys on the right hand side; the reeds are intact, it just needs the keys, but I have so far never missed these (they are an extra (push/pull) A3/F3 and E4/B3). Additionally the low F natural (lowest key (pull) on the left-hand accidental row) needs a little screw tightening (reed is fine).
  3. The second is The Stone of Destiny, composed by Maurice Lennon.
  4. This was sold privately 10/2/2017. -Evangelos
  5. Hello all, I am selling a McNeela 30-key Anglo Concertina (Swallow), in great shape. The following is the blurb from the McNeela website: "If you are a beginner and want to advance to the next step, this concertina is the ideal instrument for you. This concertina is made for intermediate players who have mastered the basic skills of the concertina and are looking to play more advance musical pieces. It comes with Italian Voci Armoniche double steel reeds, this gives it a bright and loud sound. The reeds are screwed to a newly made reed pan and it has Riveted action." I would agree with the above statement completely. This instrument took me comfortably from the total beginner stage to what I would consider happily intermediate, and indeed it has some features (low draw A, comfortable reach for my relatively small hands) that I will miss on the instrument I am currently playing. I purchased this for $1,900 about a year and a half ago, but am a motivated seller at the moment. Please private message me if interested at eglosny@gmail.com. I will happily provide audio samples as well, if requested. If sold I will certainly make a donation to concertina.net. Apologies for the duplicate post, but I realized afterwards my header lacked some pertinent information. All the best, Evangelos
