  1. He does. In the recent Noel Hill Japan tour, he was with three concertinas. Wheatstone(Linota?), Lachenal and Dipper miniature.
  2. https://youtu.be/cwwQ5Rr1lHo and internal view is here https://youtu.be/pL5kqs0OhLg .
  3. Just FYI, it's not 'A Touch Of Clare', but 'Kitty Hayes Remembered' is still available at Custy's. http://www.custysmusic.com/product-info.php?pid340.html
  4. I own Norman miniature (4-inch across) with seven-fold bellows and I think I should have longer bellows. Eight-fold sounds good. Edited: typo
  5. As far as I can remember, Chris Droney plays Wheatstone. Jacqueline McCarthy once played 24-button Wheatstone (now Dipper). Hugh Healy played Wheatstone in his album. Mary MacNamara played Wheatstone in her first album. In the recent ICA interview(CW472) Noel Hill said that he has three Linotas. Mrs Crotty played Lachenal (and inherited to Michael Tubridy). Kitty Hayes played Lachenal. Cormac Begley plays piccolo Lachenal. But I may be wrong. Experts comments welcomed.
  6. Just FYI, Barleycorn now lists one for sale. http://www.concertina.co.uk/stock-selection/?concertina=3067
  7. Similar one is on eBay now. https://www.ebay.com/itm/222899351430
  8. It is called "Papernica" in Japan. I once mentioned here . But I first saw this video clip. Thank you for sharing. papernica.com (I couldn't find English website) sells them as kits and also has workshops for making them.
  9. Just noticed that @met_musical twitter account have an English concertina as their icon. It is interesting they chose concertina among many other unique instruments. About free reed instruments, they tweets Wheatstone Duett and Melophone.(and more, maybe.) Facebook also has similar group The Met: Musical Instruments (same icon).
  10. The Britches Full Of Stitches https://thesession.org/tunes/1075
  11. Just found this page https://www.facebook.com/sean.ofearghail but without contact number / address. If you have facebook account, facebook messenger might work.
  12. The whole instrument was built by Connor except for the reed pans and reeds which are Wheatstone. I don't know anything else about it. I Seem to remember, and I am fairly certain about this that these instruments were known a 'Phoenix' instruments, rising out of the ashes and all that. Nothing to do with a certain H Potter... Dave I think that is Wakker Phoenix. Collaboration work by Wim Wakker and Barleycorn. I think Connor rebuild do not have such name...
  13. As far as I know, Connor rebuild models are produced by John Connor in collaboration with Barleycorn(Chris Alger) using Wheatstone or Lachenal reeds. Mine is built by Connor (including reedpan) with old Lachenal reeds and has no makers name outside. Inside of the instrument there is a stamp of Barleycorn.
  14. I have a Frank Edgley's accordion reed model which has the similar bellows ring. I think Frank can answer the question.
  15. I have standard sized (not miniature) 22 button C/G. Extra buttons are G#/Bb on LHS and C#/D# on RHS push/pull. I guess the one in PICA Fig.A1.5 has the same scheme though that one is D/A.
  16. That is actually a mistake, it's not Patrick Kelly who is playing with her there but Kathleen Harrington. Thank you for letting me know.
  17. Thank you Nate! And one more from Clare County Library (with Patrick Kelly from Cree). http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/music/live/crotty_kelly_T105-2.htm
  18. Thank you for putting this up! I really enjoyed. To avoid unrelated content at the start, please use this link https://youtu.be/NrkMTCRzj0g?t=3m28s
  19. Found this in archive.org. https://web.archive.org/web/20071024064232/http://www.concertina.net/museum.html -- Taka
  20. It's Jedcertina, I think. http://www.concertinamuseum.com/CM00308.htm
  21. That reminds me of this thread 28-Key Lachenal - All Buttons On One End. But single fold bellow looks quite odd.
  22. 5132 was my mistake. Ebay description in 2008 said 5131 or 6131. 9126
  23. I have photos of #5132(22 keys) and #9126(20 key) and both of them have numbered keys. So I assume #8866 has numbered keys. It is only an assumption though.
  24. I once saw one on ebay in April 2007 from Chris Alger. I didn't bid on it though. Serial number was 8866.
  25. Just to let you know that my tutor is still there as a free down load if anybody wants it.It was recorded for Anglo beginners and is a help for twenty button playing. It was the way I found to enable my left hand to accompany my right. Al So isn’t still available somewhere? This link is not work8 g for me. Thank you for this Please see this post from Don. http://www.concertina.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=19889&p=185774
