    Dipper For Irish Trad

    Hi Ann, If you're thinking of placing an order with the Dippers, definitely reach out to them. http://www.johndipper.co.uk/concertinas/contact.htm John Dipper is quick to respond to emails and immensely helpful about answering any questions about their instruments. My understanding of their models is that they have "models" but this is a loose concept as they allow a lot of customization for every instrument they make. Their general models are based on size/shape/clef and then specific "type models" are all the extras/upgrades that you can pick (this is all on their website). As far as button dimensions, your best bet I'd say will be to try a variety of concertinas and take some measurements on the ones you like the best (and of course the Dipper's can walk you through the choice as well). Best of luck! -Lep

    Anglo Crabb/Shakespeare For Sale

  5. Trying to gather some interest for a concertina class at the 2019 South East Tionol. This year the Tionol is in Oviedo, Florida at the Canterbury Retreat Center February 8-10th. More information can be found here: http://www.floridairishpipers.org/page13/page13.html Right now there is no concertina class, BUT... If we can get enough concertina players interested, we might be able to get a concertina class/instructor for it. They've had some great concertina instructors in years past, but it's been a while. Speak up if you're interested or feel free to reach out to Kathleen Cavanagh directly, her contact info is in the Tionol link. I'm not associated with the SE Tionol, but Kathleen told me I could see if there was any interest here on cnet from other players. -Lep

    Anglo Crabb/Shakespeare For Sale

    I'm working on thinning out the herd to make way for my Dipper. Up for sale is my Crabb (from an email discussion with a knowledgeable authority, this may actually be a Shakespeare). I purchased this from David Robertson. The following is his description of the concertina. "32k Crabb Anglo concertina in C/G, circa 1900, with unusual slightly raised ends, probably made by Crabb to special order. Fully restored with new 7-fold bellows, new pads, valves, bushes, phosphor-bronze springs and straps. Metal ends, buttons and fittings polished, woodwork refinished in French polish, and all chamois seals replaced. Tuned to modern concert pitch (A=440Hz) Original leather case modified to accept 7-fold bellows and re-lined." All in all, it's a beautiful instrument, standard size about 6 inches across the flats. David did an absolutely wonderful job on this 'tina. i believe it was originally in Bb/F, now it is in C/G. Asking $5750.00, I'd rather keep it in the continental US for ease of shipping. Would be willing to possibly meet+deliver in the Florida/Georgia area. If sold on the forum, an appropriate donation will be made. PM me for any further details. -Lep

    WANTED - Suttner / Wally Carroll concertina

    Hi Wolf, It's seems a bit quick to me too, but that's what Suttner's website currently says "Current delivery estimate 2.5 years." Perhaps it's been a while since he's updated it...

    WANTED - Suttner / Wally Carroll concertina

    Might be hard pressed to find a 38button Suttner or Carroll on the market. You can try contacting Chris over at barleycorn concertinas to see what vintage stock he has http://www.concertina.co.uk I believe he usually has more than what's listed on his website. I own a Suttner myself and I've had the opportunity to play a couple Carrolls, absolutely wonderful instruments. Might be worthwhile getting on one (or both!) of their wait lists. Both are around a 2.5year wait (according to their websites which isn't really too bad). You might save some money this way too. A few years ago I waited almost 5 years for my Suttner to be built and I can say it was definitely worth the long agonizing wait!

    Need some help, Pairing a tune with Scarborough Fair

    Haha well now I think I'm torn between Drowsy Maggie and Fig for a Kiss. I guess I'll just have to rotate between the two 😄

    Need some help, Pairing a tune with Scarborough Fair

    I really like the sound of Fig for a Kiss. I can't find any music (tried youtubing them and the session) for Aileen Og or the Dancing of the Sheets though. Perhaps alternative names for them?
  13. Alrighty, I could use some input. So I want one or two tunes to launch into after Scarborough Fair (open to any suggestions reels, jigs, etc.) One tune set I've heard played at sessions is Star of the county down (it'll be sung) and then afterwards everyone launches into Cooley's Reel and then Rakish Paddy. I'm looking for something along those lines (yes I know SOTCD is a barn dance followed by reels while Scarborough Fair is a waltz followed by... ) -Lep
