  1. It may be found useful to check the poster's previous posts (total 7). most involve an instrument for sale.
  2. Try contacting the Yorkshire concertina players group. These details are taken from the concertina FAQ found at www.concertina.info Yorkshire Concertina Players An active club that is "a get-together of Graham Hefferman concertina players from all over Yorkshire. 16 East Moor Road Every concertina player is welcomed, no matter Leeds what you play". WWW page at:- LS8 1AE http://www.yorkshire-concertina-club.org.uk/ England
  3. They sound the same, but I believe the word here with this meaning is 'rote', from the same root as 'rota'.
  4. You could try contacting the individual players on the Cd, John Kirkpatrick, Dick Miles, Tim Laycock and Harry Scurfield.
  5. Join the International Concertina Association, and get access to their library.
  6. It is an extended treble, as stated in the original post.
  7. MMIX is 2009 in Roman numerals.
  8. Well played. Do not take risks while healing is progressing.
  9. Thank you David. I have never noticed (or needed to notice) code fields before.
  10. Thank you. I have posted the abc on facebook and a link to your PDF file. The abc seems to include a smiley face. What do you do to clear it? This link is to a youtube clip of Mary Humphries and anahata playing the theme: https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DYSH1_I0lmHE%26feature%3Dshare%26fbclid%3DIwAR3NEVewZgtrM_WTw0WMbDarzCEt5SFFAG6QnI2VS0xcWD6hT5PWiLtHUxU&h=AT0fsStdu1EDPkGScYtSzCmrBson3oMUQvn78Z9n3NyXpUml71QP70Hw0XEnayOq-9_IN296bjOhMxZfIUpUnCykPw8i2xDH0ClE7kJw_SvUbCJSgF8rqt03fiBmzk-O0Q&__tn__=H-R&c[0]=AT3FXR3BFOiuOMCxTOt9qX2CptQQUwqP9qK1DrbPn1gi8e-jkEi07AvJ7-RWe61EiavClW8mdSTH90p_SLhI6B7TjJQnbCziWiGSTT06VuTPJeAV8v3nfG5uoHvK8ZyD-3wzF_QZG-6zgd8XdvQaNrA7IBAqzruXzqKF6h0vQ1Qq0p1jM2CS1lzb0A
  11. Various versions have been posted on Facebook. May I share this there?
  12. In the book 'South', which tells the story of the expedition, the word concertina apears twice, neither related to the instrument. Theyrefer to the ship being trapped in the ice. The first reads "The whole of the after part of the ship had been creushed concertina fashion. The second instance reads "The ship's stern is now more or less soft bed, formed of recently frozen ice of about one foot in thickness. I thank God that we have been spared through this fearfull nightmare. I shall never forget the concertina motionsof the ship during yesterday's and Wednesday's fore and aft nips." Thanks to Kindle search facilities.
  13. As a committed ICA member and former treasurer (retired), I second Brian's proposal that the letters should go to the ICA archives. I too would offer to be a temporary custodian until they could be transferred to the "right" place. Perhaps it needs a current ICA committee member to step forward with a reply. Regards, John Wild
  14. After uploading a sound file, I found a way to share the video. This is a link to the file on box.com online storage. Some may decide I should have stuck with the sound file.🙂 https://app.box.com/s/0tjgoh8amx24e4y2jahzt169iz6tiokr
  15. My humble contribution. I do not have a Youtube account, and a video file is too Large to post here directly, so I have linked an MP3 file on Soundcloud. Played on Wheatstone aeola tenor. https://soundcloud.com/user-344117058/march-of-the-concertinas/s-YyZOMFc5Emv?si=9d3e483026964ac8a757970ac2e79cba&utm_source=clipboard&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=social_sharing
  16. I believe an identical one except with blue instead of red is in the hands of Dave Townsend.
  17. Great stuff. This is building up to more than a concertina DAY! 🙂

    I have an ABC notation for the Hogmanay Strathspey. I do not know if this is the one you are thinking of.

  20. Will viewing of the video concert be restricted to the day?
  21. The description states English-type concertina, but the button layout would suggest an anglo.
  22. If your system accepts bluetooth devices, I can recommend the Sony WF-XB700 earphones. https://helpguide.sony.net/mdr/wfxb700/v1/en/contents/TP0002757640.html
  23. If you are using EasyABC, there is a transpose function in the edit menu.
  24. Or check the books section of Dave Townsend's website, as it was originally published by Serent Press.
