About Me

Ive been playing concertina for a few years now, but only as an alternate to my Mandolin and Guitar. Currently I am focusing on the Crane Duet as I feel it affords the most options and serves me for what I need.


I have played on Anglo and English boxes as well, including a small button accordion from Castagnari, but I prefer the Crane Duet over all of the other options. My first duet was a Maccann 46 key in serious need of re-valving, I still play it upon occasion as it lends itself as all duets to experimentation.


I like them all, but if I could go back in time I would have saved up and just got the Crane.




You don't need a priceless instrument to play, just good music and an enthuiastic audience.
