    I play English Concertina and Hayden Duet. I play solo at local folk clubs, and play in the band with Kettle Bridge Clogs, a ladies North West Morris side. More recently I have begun playing in a small ensemble of about 12 concertina players, mixed ability levels, many of them connected with Kettle Bridge Clogs.

    Wheatstone Jeffries Pattern Duet #32045

    I should have said that - sorry.

    Wheatstone Jeffries Pattern Duet #32045

    From December 1928, Ledger SD02. It reads N.P. flat 53 keys. Before that is what appears to read Duet Tex, but might be Duet Hex (for hexagonal). The words duet t(h)ex are written in stronger ink over an original text, which may be the same or there could be an alteration. In the column with serial numbers if you read sideways, there are the words Oval labels.

    Halsway Carol

    Thank you. I have a copy of Paul's book, but not the latest edition, so I missed it. I'll look for an update to download. Thanks to you for the reference and to Paul for creating the source. Regards John.

    Halsway Carol

    Report post Posted 8 hours ago Scottish by Nigel Eaton played by duo Lenormand - Restoin. 1 Quote Playing Custom Dipper Duet Concertinas. Very poor english speaking... You do not need to speak any language - the concertina speaks for itself! :-) Excellent rendition. Are the dots available anywhere?

    Tune name ?

    I shall now have to listen to the record again - it has been unplayed for some years!

    Tune name ?

    This is the other part of the cover which would not fit into one scan.

    Tune name ?

    It seems you just get one sentence - "Thrunton woods are just to the south of our house". On the record label itself, Alistair's name is listed as the composer.

    Tune name ?

    This is an image of the back cover, left side only as it would not all fit my scanner. Hope this helps. Edited to add - the dark background may make it difficult to read. - John.
  10. Recently I have noticed the time period for unread content is set to 365 days when I go there at each login. Though I change it to show unread posts since my last visit, it does not retain this setting, and the next login is back to showing 365 days. Is there any advice on keeping the setting at posts since my last visit? thank you. John Wild

    Pelican Cases And Plumbing Nightmares

    While we are always looking for younger dancers (and musicians!) to join the side, we have only existed as a side since 1984!! 🙂
  12. I shall be there with 2 others from Kettle Bridge concertinas. - John.

    Pelican Cases And Plumbing Nightmares

    Kettle Bridge Clogs thoroughly enjoyed their time there following the Marborough Morris Ale in 2009. Fond memories are still fresh in spite of the number of years.

    2-button tunes on Anglo?

    Some years ago, Brian Hayden compiled a set of tunes for beginners on the duet concertina. It starts with a one-note melody, then 2-note melody, increasing by one note with each tune. The left hand accompaniment is also simple. I hope Brian will not mind me sharing this here. scan0001.pdf
