  1. I had two of John's bellows and although maybe heavier, they were wonderful quality and I am not sure I noticed any real difference compared to the Rosalie dipper bellows I have had. They would not affect volume at all and I would be very happy to have them on any anglo.
  2. Sorry I can't help except to say that my whole approach to playing EC is based on having listened AA's playing for hours on end as a new player all those years ago. I loved his use of the word "stotty" when describing air management. You are totally on the right path by referring back to his playing. I'll be interested to hear any replies t your question. Robin
  3. Well done P. It is so cool to buy a concertina that comes with documentation esp . photo's. Robin
  4. I like this, Jim. I think you could re-interpret it what she said more generally and say.........." Jim, the way you play that tune makes me want to dance". For the music that we love to play, this is the.......... "it's-all-been-worthwhile"......... comment. When I lead the English Trad English session in Toronto for 15 or so years, when we had settled into the Caledonian pub, it could be quite noisy some evenings. I was always looking around at the pub's patrons and if I saw a group deep in conversation but unconsciously tapping their feet, I would think............"this is working, this is why we are here " !
  5. ......................boy those first few bars took me back to 1976, Plain Capers, John Kirkpatrick and my youth ! Nicely played.....interesting basses, I really enjoyed it. Personally I did not find it "non-morrisy" other than the tempo ! Thanks for posting, Jim. Robin
  6. Don, as an aside...I emigrated from England to Canada for the love of a good woman and Robertson head screws........
  7. Over the years I've been to a few concertina weekends in England and was always amazed to see that the Irish\English folk music contingent were in the minority. Others on this forum can expand/contradict etc that view.
  8. Hi Joey.........three of the end bolts are missing from the image ?
  9. Simple man that I am, Geraghty, this is what I call a "no brainer" ! You will never regret it. Cheers..............Robin
  10. Nice anglo and well played..........well done ! Like the Tamara de Lempicka poster too !....interesting woman ! Robin
  11. Thanks, Steve; I look forward to hearing about the project.....and maybe hearing it eventually.
  12. Just curious, Bill........what is the likely final use for these reeds ? I know zero about reed organ reeds . Tx Robin
