  1. They played Sisters Oregon tonight.
  2. Imar is currently on tour. All very fine musicians, but concertina player Mohsen Amini is truly amazing: Imar Tour Dates A short audio clip from their show in Corvallis Oregon on Mar. 16th 2019:
  3. An interesting article about the famous escape from Alcatraz in 1962. Frank Morris would play an accordion to mask the noise as John and Clarence Anglin worked at digging out a ventilation duct. Morris apparently had a concertina as well: "On the night of June 11, 1962, they crawled through the hole in their cell wall and then up a network of piles to the prison roof. They then slide down a smokestack and left the island on a raft made of more than 50 raincoats and inflated with a small concertina, which was used as an improvised bellows." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/01/24/mysterious-letter-reopens-case-whether-alcatraz-escapees-survived/?utm_campaign=Echobox&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook

  6. Russia Today's facebook page just posted it - guess it's with the big leagues now.

  8. Sign me up! It might be difficult for those with little hands to play along - but they should be keeping their hands to themselves anyway.
  9. An interesting series of podcasts are being produced by Seattle singer Colleen Raney and flutist Hanz Araki - focusing on Irish, Scottish and English songs and tunes. The first highlights artists that influenced their careers - the second on 'crossover' songs that borrow from Irish/Scottish/English traditional roots. Some interesting discussion between songs. https://soundcloud.com/littlesearecords
  10. that's what I meant to say, but I was being brief - great explaination!
  11. The only complete 3-note chord would be D# diminished. If you want to consider the possible 4-note chords (with one note missing), your choices are: B7th (no root) Cdim7th (no root) D#dim7th (no 3rd) F#min6th (no 5th) F#dim7th (no 5th)
  12. Concertina Alba From Wikipedia: The alba ("sunrise") is a subgenre of Occitan lyric poetry. It describes the longing of lovers who, having passed a night together, must separate for fear of being discovered by their respective spouses.
  13. Just found this one, don't think this one has been mentioned: "Until They Sail" 1957 with Jean Simmons, Joan Fontaine, Paul Newman, and Piper Laurie (playing the concertina). Great score by David Raksin to boot!
  14. I would say the Anglo-Heisenberg principle applies - that it's impossible to know precisely which note is being played AND the direction of the bellows simultaneously to arbitrarily high precision.
