  1. We have at least three members I know of there. According to this, it continuing to shake things up a lot: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsww/Maps/10/145_40.php It's updated every hour, and use the triangles on each side of the map to scroll around. That's a lot of earthquakes for one day, and not small ones at that. Thanks Leo

  3. Hi Wes Just a guess. You don't suppose it could be named after Larry Cecil Adler do you? His biography would put him in the right place at the right time. According to this article, he moved from the US to London in 1949 and remained there for the rest of his life. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Adler He's the guy who made this and other songs and tunes famous. Larry Adler plays Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1MmpF_I8cE&fmt=18 Thanks Leo

  6. Hi handsofbliss Are you looking for newly made, old/vintage/antique, etc. It would be a different suggestion if you lived in the US, or Europe, or the North Pole. Can you hint at which continent you live on? Thanks Leo
  7. Hi Wim Thanks. No didn't upset me. I didn't spill my coffee, but I'll be honest, I waited a day for it to sink in before I regained my composure. Let's call it version2. I suspect strongly in the States something like that would not be handled in a college type setting and be more suited to an independent type school, specializing in one thing and that would be build concertinas where all the requisite courses, theory, and practical applications could be handled in house. Like I mentioned, unfortunately most have earned a bad reputation, but the good ones are outstanding. Two come to mind (not music related), and by coincidence, they are local to me: One has been in business since 1949 and is well known. http://www.pagunsmith.edu/index.php Another started in 1929 and has been training airplane mechanics that are all over the world. http://pia.edu/ Just as a comparison the local community college has an aviation program that was started with the intent of having a quasi ab initio program similar to the European style of training pilots, where a person could come off the street, and get a two year Associate degree, and enough licensing and experience to get a job as an entry level airline pilot or flight instructor. There is an optional career path, and that's to get a job with the US Government as an air traffic controller. The unfortunate things that happened, are the state of the industry today and there are no real jobs. There isn't an option to start their own business, since buying airports and airplanes run into lots of dollars, and they drop out. That's the program I'm most familiar with. The program changed with the demands of the education system with some nonsense courses and it takes away from the time needed to focus on the aviation subjects. I would rate it as only one of the marginally better programs, but nowhere near what it was 10 years ago. Its quality has dropped considerably. I would consider it an institutional problem in Pennsylvania. Do you have any thoughts in doing in the US something along the lines you did in Europe? Now that would be an interesting project to work on. If I were a few thousand miles closer, I might even attend. I wouldn't want to judge your suggestion to kaapenaar, since he's in South Africa. I have no clue about the situation there, or Europe. I'm just very familiar with the going on in the US. It's different. Thanks Leo
  8. Hi Alan You can add Audacity to the list. It does all that and more. I've used it in the past and it's a nice program. http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ Thanks Leo
  9. Hi Wim Note even close. In the states, it's a myth repeated by the bastions of higher education perpetuated by the "academia nuts" deciding amongst themselves in isolation that it is good. Ask anyone who graduates what they can do and you'll be lucky if get more than a questioning blank stare in reply. Most have been taught what to think, and not how to think. It's called social engineering at it's best. There are many stories of PHDs waiting on tables and parking cars because they can't find a job, nor can they DO anything. Community colleges are regarded as an extension of high school, nothing more. Trade schools are regarded in less esteem than a used car salesman or carnival worker, and generally are scams. It's hard to find a legitimate one. There are really good teachers, but they are few and far is the distance between them. They are the exception rather than the rule. It's gotten so bad that the cliche of "Them that can, do. Them that can't, teach. If you can't do either, then consult." has become a reality. There is a small hint in your question. It's rare for it to be asked at all. Thanks for it. Just so you know, I didn't arrive at this opinion in isolation, since I've taught quite a few aviation students over a lot of years, both in a college setting and out. It's a constant battle to demand they get it right or they will crash and die. They've never had to to that before. The concept is foreign to them and it's getting worse. There really is no place in the States to do as you suggested. The really good craftsmen. who are sought out, are self taught from the beginnings with a labor of love that can't be taught by any institution. If their creation is superior or even inferior, then the market will decide. There is no licensing or credibility of a piece of paper. Their instruments speak for themselves. Maybe after the coming supposed summer 1/3 devaluations of the dollar against the yuan, you could start a program that would cure the problem. Part tongue in cheek, but real nonetheless. Thanks Leo

  11. Hi Geoff I have a treble Morse Albion. I'm happy with it and don't find the 37 button range limiting at all. There is an occasional passing thought to replace the air button with an "E" to fill out one more note, but the thought doesn't last. I don't play the music that needs those notes and I only play for my enjoyment. At the time, the Geordie Model was non existent. It has 45 buttons, and like the Albion is available in a tenor and baritone range. I'd be hard pressed today to decide which one, if I had to buy one now. Thanks Leo
  12. My first thought would be Hamlet. "Alas poor Yorick!". It is a unique treasure. Thanks Leo
  13. In the 1951 Errol Flynn movie "Adventures of Captain Fabian", a concertina shows up a few times during the movie. I couldn't tell if it's an anglo or English since I couldn't pause it. Seen mostly in the pub scenes, and once during a formal party. The music sounds right and I think it's dubbed. There is also a scene where Errol Flynn is in the bath tub with concertina music in the background. === Another one would be the 1937 Gary Cooper movie "Souls at Sea". Around half way through the movie, there is a party on the ship and one of the musicians has an Anglo concertina and Gary Cooper fakes playing a fiddle. Must be an early Anglo since the story is supposed to happen in 1847. === In the 1995 movie "Leapin' Leprechauns" one shows up at 4 minits into this clip (about 15 minits into the movie). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-GtflWkwVU#t=04m20s Another is played at 8:40 in this clip. Same movie. It only lasts for a second. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rtr-Ov8QDAI#t=08m40s At 1:05, he plays a nice tune. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=79sDkr8Le7o#01m05s I don't know who plays it throughout the movie, since it looks like it's only used as a prop by the actor, and the credits give no insight. Unfortunately, in the sequel "Spellbreaker; Secret of the Leprechauns" there is not a musical instrument in sight. Thanks Leo

  15. Hi NoNaYet I frequent a local restaurant, and talk to an older guy in an electric wheelchair. Hopalong Cassidy is his favorite from when he was a child. Mine is Roy Rogers. Occasionally I take my laptop computer and we have dinner together, watch a movie, and swap stories and lies about who is the better in them old cowboy movies. The one you found has a group of musicians called the Jimmy Wakely Trio. They are in lots of movies from the 1940's. I think it's used as a prop though in the movies. I'll bet it looked something like this: Although in this one, it's played. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfGmNnTjEoQ&fmt=18 If it's the Simpson episode, I think it is, he's famous too. Guess who! I think I got you beat on need to get a life. Thanks Leo
  16. Hi Scoopet I couldn't find it on a video. It's possible it's still there, unnamed on one of clips under a search for his name, like the video RatFace suggested. I did find it listed on a couple of albums by Alistar Anderson. Maybe some leads to find it though. http://www.informatik.uni-hamburg.de/~zierke/folk/records/alistairanderson.html http://new.music.yahoo.com/alistair-anderson/tracks/kid-on-the-mountain--28698764 And I found a short sample MP3 of the tune on the bottom of this page from another album. http://www.allmusic.com/artist/alistair-anderson-p752/songs and here: http://ratoomp3.com/mp3/index.php?id=76973 That's about the best I can come up with. Thanks Leo
  17. Hi Gary I don't know who she is, but she's in quite a few videos. Here's one I found from Dec 2009. She also plays fiddle Chances are, if you search "Japan" and "This Forum", you'll find quite a few more. YouTube is really your friend. This is a filtered search result translating her name as Nakatou Tamotsu: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_type=videos&search_filter=0&suggested_categories=10&search_query=%E4%B8%AD%E8%97%A4%E6%9C%89%E8%8A%B1 And yes, all top notch playing.

  19. My understanding is there is a clarification on that while back for the the conditions for that link to the West. I have no idea going East. It's supposed to be an inclusion rather than an exclusion which was ruled illegal. Under the International Convention, that terminal opens up the transatlantic expansion pack invites, so I can directly connect at the Concourse A in the international terminal, Philadelphia, PA US. Boston, New York and other cities are available, but are considerably more expensive. The rules also state there must be a nonstop flight to the UK to be eligible. Ships and submarines don't count. Thanks Leo
  20. Hi Chris I wouldn't be puzzled in the least. It's the nature of YouTube and the internet to have that happen. I don't think there's a way to prevent it. I'm surprised that it's only the first one of two after all the ones I've found. The other one is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AmtCen4tRPM&fmt=18 And I just found it tonight after you mentioned it. I looked closer. Maybe Henk is doing something right to be the first. I don't want to defend the person, since I think it wrong for him/her to do that. But, the least the person from Argentina could do is be more honest and not claim them as his own and copy word for word the descriptions. A few years ago, Arby's (A US fast food restaurant) had a commercial on the TV. It must have been copied hundreds of times. This is one search result. They're all the same. Take note also, the website name under the text. There's lots of them. http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&safe=off&biw=977&bih=754&tbs=vid%3A1&q=dancing+monkeys&aq=f&aqi=g1g-s1g-sx6&aql=&oq= There is a procedure for Henk to tell Youtube to tell the poster to remove them if he wishes to pursue it. But that would be up to him. I'm not sure how much you search, but it's worse than you can imagine. I usually stick to YouTube, since they seem to be the origination of most of the videos on the internet. They are suppose to be the largest. Here is a filtered search eliminating YouTube, and concentrating on another site. You should recognize some of the thumbnail pictures, since they are older. I don't believe any of them came to songhouse.com directly from the persons playing the music, and all of them have been mentioned on concertina.net over the years. It's limited to only the last year. http://www.google.com/search?q=%22concertina%22&num=100&hl=en&safe=off&tbs=vid:1,sbd:1,srcf:H4sIAAAAAAAAACWKQQ6AIAzAfsPFyJ_1GILI4N-JAA6_1XwK1N27XVFpJHvdxmKodlbbacJHa4FU-bWoCkBmDeVZhkPS9UzA_1FpD7QcJNo8B_1RfcjrBQZcAAAA,qdr:y&source=lnt&sa=X&ei=ko5PTbbnGMys8AbBtMTSDg&ved=0CCcQpwUoBQ Thanks Leo
  21. Hi Dick Like a needle in a haystack or fishing. Sometimes in the trawl, I come up with a real catch. Or maybe that great US philosopher Forrest Gump says: "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what will come up". I enjoy looking for them. Thanks Leo An absolute gem; very funny! Never seen/heard 'The Fairy Dance' played this way, before. Hi Peter Best way to play a concertina and hold sheet music I've ever come across. Thanks Leo
  22. In the 1955 movie "Above Us the Waves", an English concertina shows up twice. The first after it's carried aboard the submarine by one of the crew, and the second is after the attack. It's shown floating away in the harbor as the last scene of the movie. It's not played, although it squeaks once or twice and there's some occasional music in the background. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdhjMux5QVI#t=09m20s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qQhnM0V-4A#t=10m00s The whole movie starts here: http://www.youtube.com/user/videomonkey2009#g/c/C859E1E5544D7649 Thanks Leo
