  1. Event will be from 1 to 5 pm at the home of a player who lives in Albany in the East Bay, fairly near the North Berkeley BART station. Players at all levels of all types of concertina are welcome! For more information, send me a PM here or email me at hrshsand@earthlink.net.
  2. Here's a video of a couple of players using neck straps:
  3. Updated to add Tassey Tiger [David Hornett] in the Vintage/Traditional category, at David's request.
  4. There's also Brian Hayden's all-systems duet workshop tutor at http://www.concertina.com/hayden-duet/Hayden-All-Systems-Duet-Workshop-Tutor.pdf .
  5. Agreed! It was good to see you there.
  6. I wasn't sure whether to put this one here, in History. or in Ergonomics! It's "The Grip Concertina", now on eBay at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/314556414316 . I have no connection to the sale.
  7. Edited to remove Boorinwood (since they no longer seem to have their own brand of concertina), to note that the Blackthorn has not been available for quite some time, and to add the Irish Concertina Company beginner concertinas.
  8. I downloaded a copy of the document, which dates this one at 1975.
  9. No specific date (since the Wheatstone ledgers for that number aren't available) but probably no earlier than the late 1930s and no later than February 1953 when #55492 was made as per http://www.horniman.info/DKNSARC/SD04/PAGES/D4P0010S.HTM . A more specific date af 1937-1939 might be correct as per http://www.concertina.com/gaskins/late-wheatstone-anglos/index.htm .
  10. Concertina Connection does full restorations: https://www.concertinaconnection.com/restoration.htm .
  11. I'm following up on my post because the first 2023 issue of Concertina World will be coming out fairly soon, so if you're thinking of joining or renewing or re-joining, consider doing it now at https://concertina.org/membership . Daniel
  12. If you enjoyed World Concertina Day last year and this year, consider joining the International Concertina Association, which organized it! Membership goes with the calendar year, so joining now will cover your membership dues through the end of 2023. Members receive the quarterly Concertina World magazine and its music supplement, which will be mailed to you in paper or PDF form depending on your preference. You'll also have access to the members-only portions of the ICA website as well as the ICA library of concertina music. Most important, you'll be a part of the only international concertina organization, still going strong more than 70 years after its founding! In addition to World Concertina Day, you'll be supporting initiatives like Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne's concertinas in schools project. To join or re-join or renew (if you're a member who has not yet renewed for this year) go to the ICA membership page at https://concertina.org/membership . For more information about ICA, look around the website at https://concertina.org . Members who join or renew now and choose to receive Concertina World in paper will receive all the issues for 2023. That won't be the case if you wait much longer.
