  1. Stephen - Thanks for the info! It does seem likely that it was a trade mark that they used. Here's a photo of a different version of the label that also says G. G. K. S.:
  2. I've seen ostriches on concertina boxes (for example, at https://jodykruskal.com/concertina_gallery_files/page17-1047-full.html ) but this is the first time I've seen one on a concertina: Listing is at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255560089541 .
  3. I agree. FYI, there's a good online abc converter at https://www.mandolintab.net/abcconverter.php .
  4. Sounds like a good idea to me. His email address according to his website is dickmiles77@gmail.com and he's on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Dick-Miles-133990769980182/ .
  5. I have added Jay to the Intermediate/Mid-range section since Edward Jay has a new website for his concertinas.
  6. To members of the International Concertina Association: ICA's 2022 Annual General Meeting (AGM) and concert is this coming Saturday April 2, starting at 6 pm British Summer Time (10 am PDT, 1 pm EDT). This year's concert performers will be UK English concertina player Steve Turner and US Anglo player Janet Dows. Current ICA members should have already received an email invitation to register on Zoom for the meeting. If you're an ICA member, remember to register!
  7. Thanks, Stephen! The text description on the YouTube video confirms what you said: "One of the new concertinas we’re testing out in the shop." I will hold off on adding these to the list until we see whether Hobgoblin winds up with more than one of each to sell.
  8. If you haven't joined yet, consider joining now at https://concertina.org/membership! (And if you're already a member and haven't yet renewed, please renew!) Members who choose to receive Concertina World in paper and join or renew now will receive all the issues for 2022. That won't be the case if you wait too long.
  9. Thanks, Wes - I should have checked that first.
  10. ELA is a good make. (I have a Chemnitzer concertina that's probably an ELA, so I have a bit of personal experience with the brand.) But condition is crucial on a vintage instrument, maybe more important than who made it.
  11. Hi, Gary-- Can you scan and share the 4-page Lachenal pricelist too? Daniel
  12. The Kenny Gallery offers a number of her works for sale (including the ones I mentioned) here.
  13. If you enjoyed World Concertina Day, 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 2022. 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 to the ICA library of concertina music. Most important, you'll be a part of the only international concertina organization, still going strong 70 years after its founding! To join, go to the ICA membership page at https://concertina.org/membership . For more information about ICA, look around the website at https://concertina.org . Daniel
  14. I just became aware of this artist who uses concertina images in some of her work. There's info about her at https://www.thekennygallery.ie/artists/degenhardtgertrude/ .
  15. The first-ever World Concertina Day, organized by the International Concertina Association, was Sunday February 6th. It was a great success, with participation from at least 13 countries! Much of what was created for the day is still available to watch, listen or read. There were a number of in-person events that day and afterwards, initiated and created by players around the world. You can find out more about what happened at https://concertina.org/world-concertina-day-events. ICA’s featured event for the day was an all-star international video concert that is still available for viewing, including new performances from John Kirkpatrick , Rob Harbron, Jody Kruskal, Alistair Anderson, Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne, Caitlín Nic Gabhann, Paul McCann and many others. World Concertina Day merchandise is still available for purchase from online shops in the UK/EU and the USA and Canada. ICA sends a big thank you to all who participated in the day: • participants in in-person events • the many players around the world who created and posted videos on YouTube and on Facebook • everyone who celebrated the day in any way, including posting WCD-related messages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter • the performers in our international video concert • the performers in the Eastern North America Online Concertina Concert • Randy Stein and Janet Dows, who both did online solo concerts • Robert Minting and interviewer Jeremy Hague for a fascinating video interview about Robert’s father, Harry Minting of the Wheatstone concertina firm • Göran Rahm, who created a multimedia article for the ICA website about the former Swedish Concertina Society (Svenska Concertina-sällskapet) • Martin Henshaw, who created a multimedia article for the ICA website about the history of the Chiltinas concertina group • Michael Hebbert, who wrote an article about Charles Wheatstone and concertina history that was published on the website of King’s College London • Otto Smith, who put together two radio events in the US that day • the North Eastern Concertina Players, who made a new audio recording for the day • the concertina players in Germany who created the World Concertina Day video challenge • Alan Day, who got people playing his March of the Concertinas • the Crewkerne Museum and the West Country Concertina Players, who held a concertina “drop-in day” at the museum • Stephen Rowley of the Anglo Concertina Facebook group, who organized and hosted a players’ gathering on Zoom • ICA’s own WCD team: Jeremy Hague (chair), Daniel Hersh, Colin Whyles, Paul McCann and Tracy Tye
  16. His website says " WAITING TIMES For Anglo Concertinas: 1 year For English Concertinas: 2.5 years". You might want to contact him to confirm: http://suttnerconcertinas.com/contact/ .
  17. Some photos below. Listing (with more photos, including internal ones) is at https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/313869355356 . Perhaps someone's homemade project from long ago?
  18. The World Concertina Day all-star video concert, organized by the International Concertina Association, is now available to view! It includes over 20 of the top players from around the world, with a great variety of styles and concertina types. Check it out! Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UJrKM9RaKM : Alistair Anderson, Jody Kruskal, Michael Hebbert, Qasadi & Maqhinga, Musik Böhmer, William "Wim" Wakker, Janet Dows, and Didie Sendra Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWbKVK1UXCs : Rob Harbron, Louis Brink, J25 Concertina Band, David Gardiner, Peter Nahon, Paul McCann, and Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne Part 3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WH2t2Sz49Jg : Caitlín nic Gabhann, Danny Chapman, Riggy Rackin, John Kirkpatrick, Geoff Lakeman, Ivan Coa Apaza, and Iris Bishop
  19. Check out what's happening at https://concertina.org/world-concertina-day-events ! I think it's an impressive list. Some of the videos will become available at staggered times through the day, and all the items in the first group ("Watch and listen anytime, starting on February 6") will continue to be available after today.
  20. Very nice! Here's another concertina-playing cat, but not as nice as yours:
  21. Yes, it's a concertina. It looks German-made to me. I would need more pictures (e.g. of the bellows while open) to make a guess at the age. It's probably a low-end instrument and not worth restoring.
  22. Sheet music is at https://concertina.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/March_of_the_Concertinas_WCD_2022.pdf . Some of the rhythm is slightly simplified from the way Al plays it. Here it is in abc format: X:1 T:March of the Concertinas C:Alan Day L:1/8 M:2/4 K:G zB AB || G2 D2 | EB AB | G2 D2 | E2 DC | B,D GA | B2 AG | A2 (3AAA | AB AB | G2 D2 | EB AB | G2 B2 | c2 A2 | d2 G2 | BA GF | G2 (3GGG | G2 (3GFG | A2 (3AAA | B2 B2 | c2 A2 | F2 D2 | A2 (3AAA | B2 G2 | d2 c2 | B2 A2 | G2 D2 | EB AB | G2 B2 | c2 A2 | d2 G2 | BA GF | G2 (3GGG | G4 ||
  23. It's on the website of King's College London at https://www.kcl.ac.uk/the-concertina-celebrating-sir-charles-wheatstones-invention-at-kings . Charles Wheatstone was a Professor of Experimental Philosophy there.
