    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.

    20-Year Anniversary of Concertina.net

    And it has developed into a major resource for concertina players. Well done.

    I play neither anglo nor bandonion, but out of curiousity:- does that mean the relative minor keys (Gmajor -> Eminor; Cmajor -> Aminor), or is it all in the major keys?
  6. If any do not find a home with an individual player, you could consider donating to the library of the International Concertina Association.

    It does appear in the first Northumbrian Pipers' Tune Book. There the spelling Jimmy Allen is used in preference to Jamie.

    Anglo players: great left hand exercise

    I have heard it played on piano accordion.

    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.

    Check out the playing of Harry Scurfield. He plays some blues on Anglo.

    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.

    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?
