  1. Through January 6, I am selling my 4-CD set “300 Gems of Irish Music for All Instruments” for $4.99 USD, a discount of 75% of the normal price of $19.99. See https://greylarsen.com/webstore/holiday-cd-book-sale/ for details. The 300 tunes are available for MP3 download as well, for $9.99. This costs less than getting the CDs if you are in Canada, Mexico or outside of North America. A sample tune is attached: The Irish reel "Dr. Gilbert." I play the tunes on Irish flute, tin whistle, and 49 of them on my Wheatstone 12-sided D/A anglo concertina from the 1930s. This is an excellent resource for repertoire building and makes a nice gift. Also, I designed the tune sequence such that good medleys result when you play consecutive tunes one after another. (At least I think so.) To buy only the 49 concertina tunes, go here: https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/49-concertina-tunes-from-300-gems-of-irish-music-for-all-instruments/. This audio collection is a companion to my book “300 Gems of Irish Music for All Instruments.” (See https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/300-gems-of-irish-music-for-all-instruments/). All 300 tunes are notated in the book. Free excerpts are available as PDF downloads (at http://greylarsen.com/webstore/books/). Many of the transcriptions pay homage to recordings by great musicians and groups such as Matt Molloy, Martin Hayes, Sharon Shannon, Mary Bergin, Kevin Burke, James Kelly, Willie Clancy, Altan, the Bothy Band and the Mulcahy Family, as well as early 20th century recordings from revered masters Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran, Dennis Murphy, Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny and others. The tunes are notated in a style that makes them equally accessible to players of fiddle, flute, whistle, accordion, concertina, harp, keyboard, guitar, mandolin, banjo, uilleann pipes – to all melody players. All my Irish music books and most CDs are also heavily discounted. Also, you can get 10% off on Carbony tin whistles and Folk Flutes by Casey Burns. Thank you for your attention. - Grey 135.

Please note: It has recently been brought to my attention that these CDs do not have the tune titles encoded on them. When you import the CDs onto a computer (into iTunes, for example) the tune names do not carry over. I regret this problem. (The CD set does come with a paper insert listing all the tune titles.) I will provide, to anyone who buys these CDs, free access to downloadable mp3s of all the tunes. The mp3s DO have the tune titles properly embedded within them.

  5. I recently hired Greg Jowaisas to do some work on my concertina and I want to let everyone know that I am very pleased with his work. I play a rare Wheatstone 12-sided, 40-button, ebony-ended anglo in D and A from the mid 1930s. I am getting ready to tune it myself, and hired Greg to put it in better shape before I do the tuning. He replaced all the valves, patched some leaks in the bellows, voiced some of the reeds that were not speaking as well as they could, and bushed some of the buttons. He inspected the pads, thinking that they might need replacing, and concluded that they really didn't need replacement. He took meticulous care with all of his work, treating this fine old instrument with the very careful attention it deserves. He also taught me some important things about reeds and his reed-tuning techniques, which was very helpful indeed. His love for the instrument shows in his deep knowledge and his continual efforts to learn more. His prices were very reasonable. He was also generous in sharing information with me, including research that he did pertaining to baffles that I had made to soften the tone of the instrument. He found and sent me a very useful article by Robert Gaskins about older, and better, techniques of baffle making, methods that I will be using very soon. (For this article, see http://www.concertina.com/gaskins/baffles/index.htm). Greg is a devoted concertina lover, a very capable and careful repairman and tuner. He also makes concertina cases. I recommend him highly to any concertina player. You can contact him at: Jowaisas Cases and Concertina Tuning and Repair, greg@gregsfolkmusic.com, (859) 291-7062, 521 Forest View Lane, Covington, KY 41015 (near Cincinnati, OH).
