  1. I don't know about your part of the world but over here this is how it works... the snow comes and goes in cycles (not the cycles you mentioned before) It goes in 20ish year cycles. We will hove good amounts of snow for 20ish years, one year it will just go away, then we will get no snow for 20ish years. Last year was the first year of the snowy part of the cycle. I hope that made sense, an old farmer told me that once. As far as I can tell it's true...my brother is 30 now and the last time he remembers having snow for Christmas was when he was around 10 years old. New England weather
  2. It must be strange not getting much snow. If you have never gone sledding You must never have gone cross-country skiing, or ice fishing?

Though his main instruments were guitar and fiddle, family legend has it that the first thing he learned to play was concertina presumably from his father or grandfather. Nobody else in the family seemed to want to follow after him and take up music, so after he died (actually I was playing guitar for a little while before that) I decided to keep the tradi
  6. Hi folks, I am new to this board and in the process of buying a concertina. As I can't get involved in any technical discussion or ask real questions until I get an instrument...

Just passing the time until I can play along with you. Alden
