  3. A good friend suggested I start a blog of what it means to play the EC. I offer to all some irrelevant and not always accurate historical facts about playing and performing on the EC. The thoughts are my own and I take full responsibility in sharing them with you. This is my most recent posting: https://concertinaguy.medium.com/playing-jazz-9546117d947f
  4. For those of you who attend the Saturday evening sing at Northeast Squeeze-In, in addition to the abundance of spirits available, it is a rare delight to hear and watch Lynn and Tony Hughes display their sense of humor and amazing musical performing skills. The next Wednesdays @ 1 Live Music Cafe Performance gives everyone a chance to have that same experience. You'll have to supply your own drink, though. Not to be missed. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/wednesdays-1-lynn-tony-hughes-a-mix-of-folk-celtic-and-originals-tickets-142629746411?aff=ebdssbonlinesearch
  5. The one thing we miss most in these times is attending live music events. Orchestras, jazz clubs, pub jams and performances, cafe and restaurants with piano, guitar or whatever.

  6. I was very fortunate to learn my playing techniques for the EC from Boris and Sergei Matueswitch. Boris had a plethora of music he arranged and transcribed for teaching proper phrasing (bellow control) and notation (note placement for proper and alternative fingering when playing single or complex note patterns and chords). Both men were extremely accomplished musicians and performers. Boris could play anything. I offer lessons to others hoping to teach their lessons and techniques. Two of several questions I ask when someone wishes to study with me is what kind of music they like to play
  7. I recorded this tune 5 years ago as a ballad. Today I worked it out to swing a little. Written by Harry Warren in 1934. Based on Art Garfunkel's 1975 version. Listen to I've Only Got Eyes For You.mp3 by Randy Stein 1 on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/2uiHJ
  8. HYMNES À L'AMOUR Songs of Love and Hope for the New Year Performed and arranged for solo English Concertina. Thursday, Dec 31st 6:00PM EST in US (may start a little later). GMT-5:00 https://happyholidayopolis.com/event-schedule/
  9. Based on the classic gypsy jazz standard Bossa Dorado by Dorado Schmitt. I had a dream that my group played this as a tango. Woke up and played it as I heard it. I used the recording app Soundtrap to record a rhythm and then lead. Listen to Tango Dorado EC by user827948939 on #SoundCloud https://soundcloud.app.goo.gl/j56b
  10. Moonlight In Vermont Written by Karl Suessdorf in 1944 Needed an election distraction.
