  1. Bob Snope from the Button Box store wrote this excellent concertina song. Here I am performing it at the Horsham Folk Club last November.

    Concertina for Cows

    Hey Don... Git Along Little Doggies! Great graphic Stephan! Thanks for your suggestions, Paul. Unfortunately, Youtube only offers three choices for the thumbnail image and this was the most dynamic and clearly the best of the three. Wolf, as for the cows startling and running away, I have to agree with you. What made them do that? Perhaps it had something to do with the late entrance of the red bull? I'm just a city boy with no clue as to what is in the mind of a dairy cow.

    Concertina for Cows

    Last November, I had a fantastic tour of folk clubs and house concerts including one in Ripon, North Yorkshire. As I was leaving, in the morning, I saw a beautiful stone wall with cows behind. My host Ted D. agreed to to video me playing for the cows and the curious beasts seemed to enjoy the concert!

    My baby just cares for me

    Nora, I've been a fan of your singing for weeks! Ever since Colin Dipper shared your lovely performance of Les Feuilles Mortes with me. Oh yeah, Tona you sound real good too!

    EC accompaniment question for "Red Haired Boy"

    Hi McDouglas, What you have written out here would be fine as a variation, but the main thing I would be doing in your case would be to emulate what a flat picked guitar would do. Bass strum, bass strum in most bars. The bass note might be short and the strum might be shorter (leaving sonic space for the other instruments.) This would be an Um Pa Um Pa idea. The Pa would be accented and very short duration. The strum or Pa could be a single note or two or three, depending on what sounds good. Quarter note runs would add interest and drive. Example: measure 2 could have bass quarter notes walking up to the D chord (B, C#, D, -) I hope you continue to enjoy your Texas trio. Making music in a small group is the best!

    Oops, I said of this extra gig... "evening of Thursday the 15th at The White Thorn Inn at Shaugh Pryror". However, the date is actually Friday the 16th.

    Thanks Mitch for offering me a housing plan B. I hope to see you at the Grand Union. On another note, The intrepid Geoff Lakeman has just arranged an additional gig, evening of Thursday the 15th at The White Thorn Inn at Shaugh Pryror on the edge of Dartmoor. Rob Murch, an amazing banjo player with the Dartmoor Pixies will join Geoff and myself for a trio performing tunes and songs.

  12. I would love to hear it, or better yet play it. What a marvel. These 44 or often called 45 Anglos are quite rare.
  13. What a rescue from oblivion! Does the current owner play it? A friend of C.Net?
  14. Is this a duet or an anglo? Regardless... what a beauty!
