  1. The I.T.M.A. is proposing to publish the tunes from the Forde collection next year. The tunes were collected during the Great Famine and were never published. I though ITM players might be interested in this video.
  2. During lockdown RTÉ radio's Rolling Wave programme, with the Irish Traditional Music Archive, commissioned 10 composers to write new tunes on whatever instruments they had in their homes. Amongst the 10 was Edel Fox who wrote two lovely tunes, and recorded them on the concertina. The recordings and transcription of the tunes can be found here, with all the other compositions. I thought it might be of interest to ITM players. https://www.itma.ie/blog/faoiseamh
  3. The fretwork is the same as on my Stagi A48 English concertina. Accordion reeds.
  4. I noticed this has been listed by a hospice on Ebay Uk not too sure how common they are https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Antique-English-21-Key-System-CONCERTINA-Hand-Accordian-C-WHEATSTONE-232/164428615954?hash=item2648b59112:g:-MYAAOSw0cdffdWq
  5. On Ebay at the moment is a 36 key Lachenal Anglo for sale, one of the photos is the receipt for it being restored by C Wheatsone & Co in 2008 and one of the items is for re-tonguing some reeds, so they might be able to help? I am awaiting 3 replacement reeds from Mark for my Rock Chidley EC.
