  1. Thanks Stephen. I’m playing a metal ended Wheatstone Aeola.
  2. Hi Guys, I won’t swamp you with my videos but here is another one where I looked at classical music played as folk music. Is a Beethoven's 5th A Slide?
  3. What a great time we had in Poznań and yes lots of vodka…
  4. Hi guys, Here is a solo rendition of James Scott Skinner's hornpipe on the English Concertina.
  5. Hello everyone, I’m going to start offering Skype lessons for English concertina. If anyone is interested you can find out more at this link below. Although this is not an altruistic adventure we do need many more English concertina players so feel free to get in touch with any questions. http://simonthoumire.com/skype-lessons/
  6. Thanks Jody. I suppose it can be anything you want :-) When I’m doing my ‘vibrato’ there are lots of things at play especially volume increase and decrease. Nice to see you in Swaledale.
  7. Hi all, I’ve made a wee video on playing vibrato on the concertina. It makes a big difference to your performance.
  8. Here are a couple of great Scottish marches - The Balkan Hills by Corporal J. Gillan and The Atholl and Breadalbane Gathering by Wm Ferguson - played by myself and Innes Watson!
  9. This week I’m in Yorkshire Dales National Park at Swaledale Squeeze teaching the English concertina! Have a look at the beautiful countryside, learn about the concertina and possibly decide to play it!

  10. Hello everyone, Here is some concertina and harpsichord! You can download the tune music at this link too!
  11. I headed north to Aberdeen to find out more about one of my musical heroes James Scott Skinner. I didn’t really like this tune at first but I do now!
  12. That lovely David! Great harmonies! King Coil's Grave is really interesting. Like most things there is nothing left of it and you wouldn't notice it if it wasn't featured on the map. Bones were found there in the early nineteenth century and a really interesting carved stone. There are pictures of it on the net but I don't know if anyone knows where it was. https://canmore.org.uk/site/42711/coilsfield-mains-king-coils-grave
