  1. Very well played indeed.I would also add that the tune is notated in John Kirkpatrick book of tunes.I think he played it on piano and than aranged it for the Anglo. So good to see a talented young player. Bryan
  2. Sad news.John repaired my jeffries concertina with new bellows in 1981 it has never let me down. R.I.P John cplayer.
