Looking for tab (Bosun Bill - Sea of Thieves) (Anglo)
Alison Scott replied to Ostrava's topic in Tunes /SongsComing late to this, but Sea of Thieves is a hugely successful pirate themed video game in which every player is issued with a concertina as part of their starting equipment. It has over 30 million players, so if even a tiny fraction of them decide that they’d like to learn more about concertina it will have a major impact on the hobby. This is the sort of publicity that most folk instruments only dream of.
Maiden Voyage - Anglo Concertina
Alison Scott replied to TehRazorBack's topic in Tunes /SongsThis is spiffy, both Joel’s original interpretation and your splendid transcription.
The Prince of Hess's Rigadoon
Alison Scott posted a topic in Concertina Videos & MusicAs arranged by Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne, who is teaching me concertina. From Playford's Dancing Master, 1726 edition. https://www.cohenbk.com https://playforddances.com/dances-2-3/prince-of-hesss-rigadoon-the/ I'm playing a 30-key C/G anglo made by Holden Concertinas. You can read more about this instrument here. https://www.holdenconcertinas.com/?p=1877 I am ridiculously happy with this instrument and with what I've managed to do with it in a year (thanks to the complete disruption of my social life). Though I should warn beginners that I play many other instruments including, critically, melodeon, and that has definitely helped. This is however the first time I've felt able to share a video with people who aren't close friends.
I wonder if Gary has any plans to issue a Kindle version of this one? I will buy it on paper if I have to but I'm trying to buy as few paper books as possible.

What have you been doing during Lockdown
Alison Scott replied to Kelteglow's topic in General Concertina DiscussionThis is a fantastic resource, thank you so much! As for what I've been doing in lockdown; I bought my first concertina and am learning to play it. Our morris side was doing socially distanced practice when it was legal but has stopped again now. I miss all my folkie friends; our club is not doing any music but we are getting together for a Zoom drink from time to time. I'm doing a certain amount of reading and crafting, and working from home (my business is only somewhat affected). My house is no tidier; funny, that.
