  1. I think this may be it: https://concertina.org/2011/04/08/the-concertina-book-of-music/ . There's an extensive discussion of the book and the process of putting it online at https://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?/topic/10231-juliettedaumcom/ . The URLs in that thread don't seem to work anymore, but I think the one I listed here will work.
  2. Some possibilities: https://bagpipeei.com/mad-trad-cdrom-concertina-tutorial http://www.crowvalleymusic.com/specialoffers.html I know nothing about these vendors.
  3. Yes, lovely. I hadn't realized that she fairly recently had cancer - more info at https://waterford-news.ie/2020/08/08/on-the-spot-edel-fox/ if anyone wants to know.
  4. If you want to buy from McNeela, there's also the Swan model which is between the two in price and presumably in quality too. I have played a Swan and thought it was a decent instrument for the price.
  5. They have a very nice new recording, where she is double tracked on mandolin and concertina:
  6. This may have been their Phoenix model. See https://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?/topic/10140-wakker-phoenix/ and the archived page https://web.archive.org/web/20160320185731/http://www.concertinaconnection.com/wakker phoenix.htm . I haven't played one myself.
  7. Joe - I agree that it's a good price if it's in reasonable playing condition. But I already have an almost identical concertina, so I don't need another one.
  8. It looks like the same concertina (including a left-hand-side photo) is on eBay at https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Lachenal-Concertina-with-good-case/392968512774 .
  9. FYI, "Nyquist" might be Dick Nyquist who used to live in Menlo Park, California and repaired and restored concertinas. My impression at the time (several decades ago) was that he did good work.
  10. It's at https://www.ebay.com/itm/C-Jeffries-Anglo-Concertina-50-Key-RARE/184469055248 and includes a note diagram. I have no connection to this sale - I'm posting because these don't come up for sale very often and someone here might be interested.
  11. The bellows and the buttons (and the fact that some buttons are falling over) look like Bastari/Stagi, though the fretwork pattern isn't familiar to me and I haven't seen 36-key Bastari/Stagi concertinas in this size. If you'd be willing to take off an end and post some photos of the action and/or reeds, that would help with ID.
  12. I think it's most likely what's sometimes called a "generic Chinese" or "cheap Chinese" concertina. Some of them are ok, but they are often poorly made and don't work properly. If you're looking for a new student/beginner Anglo, I would say you'd be better off with a Wren or a Rochelle.
  13. If you're definitely looking for a student/beginner Anglo, you might consider a Wren: https://mcneelamusic.com/the-wren-anglo-concertina-2/ . I haven't played one myself, but I've heard from people I trust that they play as well as a Rochelle but are a bit smaller.
  14. The Wren and the Rochelle are generally considered to be the best of the student/beginner Anglos.
  15. May he rest in peace. Here's a more detailed obituary from the Clare Echo: https://www.clareecho.ie/legendary-musician-chris-droney-dies-aged-95
