    Morning, Another guess.........The letters predominately appear next to the word gauze.............perhaps the colour or type of gauze? Cheers, Zak.

  9. Only just returned from Bradfield weekend and wandering around the Dales. Many thanks to Mark and Joan for their hospitality and organisation at the weekend. As first-timers we would like to thank everyone for their wonderful singing and playing and friendly welcome. Thank you all, Zak and Linda.
  10. I too had the pleasure of hearing and seeing this lovely lady, Miyuki play english concertina at Lewes yesterday. I echo Valmai`s comments. Miyuki`s playing of variations of "Greensleeves" being especially delightful. Thanks to Jeremy. Zak.

    Die ou Waenhuis

    Hello Marcus, Look on U-tube for Japie Laubscher playing "Die ou Waenhuis". He was the composer of the tune. Unfortunately boeremusiek tunes were rarely scripted - just played and remembered. It is played in the key of Bb. Perhaps someone can transcribe it for you? Cheers, Zak.

    New Concertina Buttons

    After comparing the quoted measurements of these buttons with my existing buttons, I found them practically identical. I purchased some to replace existing ones which had broken. I have now fitted some and find them A,OK. So much so that I am replacing all the old buttons with these new ones. At a £1 each, thats less than half the price I`ve been quoted elsewhere. (1953 Wheatstone Anglo 40 button). Cheers, Zak.
