    A Bizarre Concertina Gig #2

    Great! According to Wikipedia, "Red Dead Redemption 2 broke several records and had the second-biggest launch in the history of entertainment, generating $725 million in sales from its opening weekend and shipping over 24 million copies in retail." If I may ask, do you get royalties or something like them, or were you paid a flat fee?

    Duet Recordings

    Al (and Wes) - looks good! I would suggest that you also link to the recordings listed at http://www.craneconcertina.com/links.html under "Magic Fingers - Concertina Players". You might also want to ask Boney if it's ok to list his recordings under his real name.

    I hadn't been aware of this player until now. He's very impressive. Some examples below:

    Advice on selling a 1922 Wheatstone concertina

    I don't know the answer re the button count. The concertina was probably a special order of some kind because a metal end on one end and wood on the other is extremely unusual, so an extra button could have been a special request too. Re hexagonal vs. octagonal. the price list does say "Nos. 36 to 39, in the New Aeola Octagonal Model, £2 extra", so it's still likely to be a model 39.

    Advice on selling a 1922 Wheatstone concertina

    You might consider contacting Barleycorn Concertinas in England to see if they'd be interested in it. They're the leading dealer in vintage concertinas. They have a fairly similar one listed on their web site now: http://www.concertina.co.uk/stock-selection/?concertina=3232 .

    Very nice playing here. It's a Facebook video - I hope it's visible to those not on Facebook.

    Santa Claus concertina

    You are probably right. Could this be the original design?

    This is from a couple of years ago, but I don't remember seeing it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4AMUOX27aY. She is one of my favorite players.
