  1. Hi all My how time flies! I'm here once again to do a bit of missionary work. Happily I am once again running both Absolute Beginners and Improvers Melodeon workshops every afternoon from Monday 4th Aug to Friday 8th Aug at Sidmouth Folk Week. Both series will be progressive, so very advisable to start at the beginning. They are at a new venue this year, The Kingswood Room at the Devoran and Kingswood Hotel on the Esplanade. There are two Absolute Beginners workshops, just so I can fit them all in: Workshop I: 16:15 - 17:00 Workshop II: 17:15 - 18:00 No need to be abl

  4. Hi all. I decided this was the best place to post this as there doesn't seem to be a topic heading for instruments of a lesser god. And I can't remember if I told you about it at the time, apologies if I did and or indeed didn't, but there is more news now. So, for them as might be interested, read on... The Melodeon Tutor by Ed Rennie Three years in the writing, The Melodeon Tutor is published this Summer. Starting from absolute beginners the step by step approach takes you through the mysteries of playing the D/G melodeon all the way to advanced techniques playing in C major and
  5. Hi all Well finally the Devon Squeezebox Foundation website has been updated with the info for this autumn's workshops for melodeon piano accordions and english concertinas(good and righteous instruments). Additionally, for those who wish to learn but have no instrument, we have a number of melodeons and english concertinas for hire. How good is that? Go have a gawp www.devonsqueezebox.co.uk Cheers Ed

  8. Hi all I hope this finds you well. Infrequent visitor Ed here with news of what's going on with Devon Squeezebox Foundation this Autumn. I got news of our first English concertina course and some other squeezebox stuff about melodeons and piano accordions. I know, I know, but you never know who is listening in, nor who might be a clandestine accordionisto/a! Anyway, here we go... Devon Squeezebox Foundation is gearing up to go full steam ahead into this Autumn’s workshop season which starts in October. The workshops, which are group learning, are on weekday evenings and are open to

  11. Big Squeeze Day - Bad News and good news Devon Squeezebox Foundation are sorry to announce that they have had to cancel 2nd Big Squeeze Day on 20th September 2008. Ed Rennie, the Foundation's Lead Tutor said "Sadly, bookings are very low. I think we are another victim of the high fuel costs and general lack of dosh at the moment. We have no alternative but to cancel for this year. All those who have already booked will be re-imbursed in full. We hope this is just a deferment until next year when, with luck, the fiscal world will be on a firmer footing!" In the meantime, if you fancy
  12. Hi all I originally posted this in the events and announcements, but of course it's more that just a big old social gathering in Devon, it's educational too. So on a higher plane it's improving the mind as well as pandering to the squeezers insatiable and base hunger for having a good time. And all this goes to prove that some people will write anything to get the posts back to the top... Anyway, this is what it's all about. Devon Squeezebox Foundation is proud to announce that it's 2nd Big Squeeze Day will be on 20th September 2008 at Queen Elizabeth's Community College, Crediton,
  13. Hi Chris Why thank you! A small dose of the positive goes an awfully long way you know. Ed Hi all Just a quick reminder that Devon Squeezebox Foundations Big Squeeze Day is on 20th September 2008. All the details are on the website www.devonsqueezeboxfoundation.co.uk As it's going to be a workshop day as well as a fine social occasion with the inter-workshop jawing and the grand evening concert, I think I might shove it in the eduational bit too! Cheers Ed
  14. Hi Ed, Sounds like the PA players have the best of the deal, especially in terms of the location! Does Alison still run the Lustleigh pub, and is dozey Murphy (Irish Wolfhound) still alive? I've spent many a happy evening in the pub, whilst using it as a cycling base (1996/2001). I did one epic and memorable ride down to Sidmouth and back. En route, a bee found its way into my mouth, and did not leave before stinging me. A friend took my concertina to Sidmouth, but I was too tired to do anything other than drink in the Radway, and then contemplate the return ride. 70+ very hilly m
  15. Hi all Now, with winter drawing in, once more the old question of what to do with those long dark evenings? Devon Squeezebox Foundation hopes to run Anglo Concertina workshops throughout the winter. Naturally whether we do or not depends on if there is sufficient interest. They will probably be in the South Hams, but it all depends where the interest is! Email me via the website and let me know where in Devon you are and your level of Anglo Concertina eptitude. Now these next two may be a little off thread, but you guys are pretty broad minded Devon Squeezebox Foundation
