  1. Good spotting! I was listening rather than watching. He certainly plays it well.
  2. And here's the same recording as a link: https://www.facebook.com/martin.donohoe.1/videos/10156244300267502/
  3. Here's a very nice recording of Kelly and Holly Geraghty:
  4. Here's the first one: And the links to the others are at https://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?/profile/10571-judyhawkins/ .
  5. Stephen: I'm not sure I understand your question, where you wrote, "Is the angle similar to the English where you will have a bass and treble extended travel etc. to determine what key Or what range is the most comfortable for you as with the English as you all know you can play in multiple keys." Can you try re-wording it? I'm especially not clear on what you mean by "you will have a bass and treble extended travel etc."
  6. There's one by Wim Wakker that comes with the Elise Hayden from Concertina Connection.
  7. Here's a new one from Paul McCann (played on Crane, I assume):
  8. I saw John Roberts perform solo several years ago and as I recall he had three Anglos with him: a C/G, a G/D and a Bb/F, all Jeffries.
  9. Jake-- Very nice! FYI, re Train of Artillery, Anahata has written, "It was the official quick march of the Royal Artillery until 1706 when it was replaced by the tune we now know as "The British Grenadiers", and he also says, "I've just discovered the first half of the tune elsewhere as "The Grenadiers' Train of Artillery", while the second half is "The Marquis of Granby's March"." His version, where this is written in the description, is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGcWPJ0q2VQ . There's sheet music for The Grenadiers' Train of Artillery (from 1765!) at https://digital.nls.uk/special-collections-of-printed-music/archive/94689964 at the bottom of the page and for The Marquis of Granby's March in the same book at https://digital.nls.uk/special-collections-of-printed-music/archive/94689880 . .
  10. You might try Alan Day's tutor, free online at http://concertina.folkweb.co.uk/ .
  11. I have had good experiences with Copperplate but I'm not sure they actually have this in stock. Here's a Norwegian vendor who might have one of them: http://www.etniskmusikklubb.no/Shop/Product/The-Nervous-Man-Micheal-O-Raghallaigh/4-743 . I have had no dealings with this vendor.
  12. I would love to hear a recording of anything with that instrumental combination.
  13. I'd suggest emailing Harry at geunsharry@proximus.be . (I got the email address from his website: http://bandoneon-maker.com/ .)
  14. I think Theo makes an important point, unless you're creating your own session and can set your own rules/expectations. In my own experience (mostly in my own area in the northern half of California), written music is frowned on in the Irish and American old-time sessions I've been in, and more accepted in sessions of English, Quebecois, and Swedish tunes.
