  1. Here's a wee video I made yesterday with fab guitar player Kevin MacKenzie. It's a Miles Davis tune called Sippin' at Bells. If you want to try it here is the sheet music. I've never been very confident at taking a jazz solo but I go for it here with my eyes shut!! This video is an edit of my latest vlog where me and Kev reminisce about the good old days. Watch the whole thing here.
  2. Thanks Stephen. I’m playing a metal ended Wheatstone Aeola.
  3. 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?
  4. What a great time we had in Poznań and yes lots of vodka…
  5. Hi guys, Here is a solo rendition of James Scott Skinner's hornpipe on the English Concertina.
  6. 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/
  7. 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.
  8. Hi all, I’ve made a wee video on playing vibrato on the concertina. It makes a big difference to your performance.
  9. 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!
  10. 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!

  12. 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!
