  1. thanks chris, I now think its a variation of Primrose lasses...the last track on the album.looking it up on the session its similar but still not quite right?!
  2. hi all, have been recently listening to dervish's album.."live at johnny fox's" and need help identifying a tune. It is the last track of the album..no.13...but the last track of no.13!!!It starts at 3.40 ish on track 13.please help with name /sheet music.. best wishes simon.
  3. hi , I´ve recently acquired a 20 key ward of liverpool..lachenal...anglo number 86000ish..circa 1900.Its in CG in old pitch, with lots of bellows holes...they´ve been thoughtfully retaped in insulating tape.The reeds all seem to soundish..but can´t undo a couple of end bolts to have a poke and fiddle.... steel reeds,mahogany ends, a couple of splits and the bellows are five fold by the way. Basically it needs restoring!! however,I´m only learning....the english concertina.So here goes, does anyone have a similar conditioned(i.e needing restoration)brass reeded english concertina they´d consider swapping for it...... best wishes from devonshire, simon
  4. yes, that's the one....thanks chris.
  5. that photo is one of the photos of the baritone treble that was on a long thread on here about 3 months ago ,that I think from memory eventually sold on ebay for over 4000pounds.So your bristol/isle of man concertina is definitely a scam!!
  6. and it'll cost me a fortune in lettuce leaves....... and i'll have to keep going and getting it from next door's garden....
  7. please can somebody come up with something soon before the money gets spent on a new cooker.......... I'm not too sure now about tortoiseshell,surely the action's going to be very slow
  8. my thoughts are with you Chris. I met Rosie and Chris on Christmas Day 2007 having been playing the english concertina for only about 10 days .The way Rosie played the concertina amazed me.She is still the only good english concertina player I have seen live and consequently the time I spent watching her play really inspired me.Together with Chris' tremendous enthusiasm and help they have played a large part in my own enthusiasm and dedicated learning of the instrument throughout the last 14 months.I'm really ,really sorry Chris. very best wishes, simon
  9. sell me your edeophone chris, and I'll wear proper trousers for the rest of my days....think of all the compost and seeds you could buy with the money!!
  10. still looking for an excellent aeola or edeophone, preferably metal ended,but would consider amboyna,tortoiseshell? or ebony please look in all garages and corners of attics!!! money is now really burning a big hole in my jeans pocket.... best wishes, simon
  11. still looking.....have sold some more magic beans..so could now be in the market for a metal ended aeola... or an edeophone...still only 48 keys....that's plenty best wishes, simon
  12. please .......please......surely someone has one somewhere.....I really don't care how buggered it is.......
  13. hi marien, I can't pm you as your inbox is full...would you mind measuring the case for me please...the tentreb is 71/4 inches across the flats, thanks very much, simon
  14. hi, am looking to buy an old leather case for a tenor treble aeola .Don't mind how battered/knackered it is....Does anyone have one gathering dust at the back of their garage? best wishes, simon
  15. thanks theo...anything else worth knowing about it?If it was a 48 key I'd have a bid I think...does it sound lovely in old pitch? simon
  16. how are the bellows theo?
  17. Chris, I haven't got any metal-ended concertinas......therefore I COULD have justified it to my partner maybe !!
  18. where's it gone? I want it! it seems to have disappeared from ebay?
  19. anyone fancy breaking into manchester hobgoblin tonight..... check out their second hand english concertinas that have just come in...........Oh my god!
  20. I've been watching the lachenal..but the new photos have put me off it seems to have quite big splits in the action board and the reeds look really rusty.... any thoughts?
  21. thanks for the suggestions, but I really only want a 48 button treble. air levers are acceptable extras..
  22. sorry for any contradition/confusion tallship...!!was just trying to emphasize that I really want an exceptional player!!! I'm also prepared to pay top dollar ....not looking for a bargain!!!
  23. hi all, does anyone have or know of a super responsive,positive ,nimble metal ended treble for sale...i.e a raised ended wheatstone(22 ) or a lachenal new model ...Condition isn't too important but must play well!!! thank you simon
  24. the kesh jig...... thanks! still worth looking at the youtube clip...
  25. Hi all , I need help could some one please tell me the name of the jig that is the 3 rd one played on this you tube vid. I heard it a few times at sidmouth but never got round to asking anyone its on you tube if you type in "sarsfield's jig" (sorry for not being able to do the link) thanks, simon
