  1. thanks for your reply, Geoff. Let’s just say I’m looking for other options.
  2. Greetings! I’m looking for a professional concertina tuner in the PNW area. Searching online I found http://www.bellandreed.com/content/accordions/accordions.php in Seattle but not much else. Any recommendations or ideas? I would consider other areas in the western USA, but I’d prefer not to ship too far. Thanks! Scott
  3. Well, darn, I'd be interested if I wasn't hoping/planning on going to the Friday Harbor Irish Retreat next March. I live on the dry side of the state and have made it to a few workshops at Dusty Strings, but don't think I'll make it over the mountains twice during Winter/early spring. We'll see. Scott
  4. Nice job! I took the easy way out and traded in my Rochelle for the Clover. What'd you use for the finish on the wood? Scott
  5. have you got a link to Mad for Trad tutor. is it a book? or do you mean the Niall Vallely CD Rom yes, it's the Niall Vallely CD-Rom -
  6. I'm new to the Anglo too, and started out with Mick Bramich's book The Irish Concertina and learned a bit about cross-row playing. But I find myself wondering "am I playing too many notes in a row on the push or pull?". I try not to worry aout it too much, and just try to work out what buttons seem to be the easiest and most logical to pick to keep the music flowing. I don't want to learn a "system", but I do need some direction, so I've ordered the Mad for Trad tutor. From what I've read about it, I think I'll like the approach. I was hoping to go to Swannanoa this year and take the concertina class - but one day I looked at the house and yard and there's just too much to do! Next year I have my sights set on the Friday Harbor camp as it's a bit closer for me. Scott Arbuckle
