  1. Sorry again about not being able to join you last weekend, Alan! I still definitely agree about getting a group of us Mid-Ohioans together from time to time, since we seem to have a decent number here. Saturdays and Sundays are generally good for me, including this week and next. Any other Buckeyes up for it some time soon? Sounds like Randy is spread thin, but maybe a quick meet-up would work into his schedule. Thanks again.
  2. That's a great lead, Greg, and I've already e-mailed Wally to follow up and find out more. Good to know you're available for both repairs and for private lessons too. If I decide I can't face driving to Cinci every weekend throughout the winter, I may check with you to see if lessons once or twice a month would be possible. Many thanks for the great info! Eva
  3. Alan, Great ideas! If we could get a group together, I know that no matter at what level each of us is playing, an exchange of ideas and advice in person would be very helpful. It certainly would be great if the power of our numbers was enough to get someone here for a workshop. Thanks for the suggestion of meeting up - I will do my best to swing by Borders at 1:00 on Saturday, 11/3 so we can talk more. I would actually be very interested in a beginners workshop in Cincinnati. Where can I find more info about Greg J so I can inquire about the next planned workshop? Thanks much, Eva
  4. Hi Ken: I am still figuring that out, but I enjoy Irish style very much. I'd also like to be able to accompany singing for folk and seafaring tunes. I think I read in another forum here recently that the Irish style features the concertina as the "lead" instrument, while the English style is more about accompaniment. Assuming this is true, if forced to choose, I'd probably go with the English style at this point. I'd be curious to know of the styles you find most in PA, Ken. Thanks, Eva
  5. I'm brand new to the concertina, having purchased a humble Hohner D40 20 key Anglo just a month ago. I've started off with the Absolute Beginners Concertina Book, and last week I started to work through the great John Williams DVD that so many have recommended (with good reason!). While I feel good about the progress I've made on my own so far, I know that before long I would very much like to study with an instructor. Can any of you point me to someone in Ohio? Central Ohio would be ideal, but I'd be willing to travel to Cleveland, Dayton or Cincinnati once a month if necessary. I know there were some fantastic workshops over the summer that I managed to just miss, including one in Cincinnati. I will look for those again in Summer of '08, but I'm hoping for some guidance before then. Thanks in advance for any advice!
