  1. Thanks Roger for picking this up........( & David for confirming) You can proof read the same mistake a dozen times.............. !! I will correct the error and I need to edit some of the chords too. Robin
  2. Hope you like these tunes........................... Mrs.Belle's Square set ......a set of four Newfoundland dance tunes. Bill (Nesbitt) has a deep connection to Newfoundland. He is able to spend a small part of the year in Harbour Grace and is embedded in the rich session scene there. I worked for three years in Harbour Breton, Nfld, and both my children were born there. Here is the source collection of these tunes, compiled by Christina Smith.......we play them at about 75% the speed that they dance them in kitchens etc but we like it at this tempo and feel the tunes breathe a little more freely. https://inshorepublications.ca/wp/like-the-bird I've attached the sheet music.........interesting time signature changes..................it took me many dozens of times listening to the set until I felt able to try it on the anglo. Bill and I have determined that our next practice together we will work on more chording and additional smiles ! Thanks for listening ! Mrs. Belle's Square set.pdf
  3. And if I may add.....the people who responded above are spot on in their observations but it doesn't mean you mean a louder concertina. There starts the session arms race ! I have quite a loud Dipper anglo and frequently have the problem you describe........one trick that sometimes works is to angle the right hand end of the concertina around somewhat so it is pointing more at you than your neighbor and lean over.........only works for an accompanied style and looks odd !
  4. Has anyone found an alternative to MandolinCafe ? It was a great tool......I need to be able to export .pdf's. Thanks for any help. Robin
  5. I have always preferred six fold to five fold. But if the price is sufficiently attractive etc........Dave Robertson (on this site) made me a 6 fold set for an Aeola and they are wonderful. It's like have original 1923 bellows that are brand new. But Randy, with your superior ability, I doubt you would notice any substantial difference. Robin
  6. Really good, Ryo, fantastic playing ! ...............who made your anglo ? I did not recognise the end plates.
  7. Does it makes any financial difference to Cohen who we buy it from ?
  8. I have not heard of gold reeds................have you ever seen them Stephen ? And how do they sound ? Tx
  9. Well thank you Paul for the explanation. I've never seen 4 folds on an Anglo before so a customization makes sense.............4 folds on vintage English concertinas is common. He does come across on any Youtube videos as a nice bloke. Thanks again Robin
  10. I think you are right and thank you ! What a haunting air, eh ! Any comments on the 4 fold bellows ?...........seen it lots on vintage English concertinas but not on a more recent anglo. Thanks again.................
  11. ..........just discovered this anglo player in the UK on Youtube; great concertina player. Can anybody name this tune ? He does but it is hard to hear what he says. It's just lovely tune; does it have snatches of the King of the Fairies attached below ? Music starts at about 1.08. Thanks Robin I think he is paying a Wheatstone anglo with 4 fold bellows ..........unusual, no ? https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=StQkZwXJv7g King of the Fairies.pdf
  12. I am a small sample but he is well known to me !! For his fabulous playing, his fabulous voice, his fabulous concertina and his fabulous talent. Triple threat +1
  13. May I ask who the gentleman is, in the right of the image; he looks a lot younger than the two "elders".
