  1. Paul - Thank you very much for these downloads. I did get a 404 no such document result from clicking on the first link to Mary Humphrey's site, and noticed a period at the end of the link. So I copied and pasted it into a new tab, deleted the period, and it connected beautifully. Don't know if anyone else would have this issue but I thought I'd mention it. Thanks so much to all who put so much work into preserving this music.
  2. The couple of times I dealt with the Button Box were very happy ones, and more frequently I'd visit the web site and dream about getting something on offer. Their dedication to the instruments and players was very evident. Gonna miss 'em.
  3. Happy Birthday! Oh, to be 64 again. Those were the days.
  4. Sounds a bit like what John Spiers has been doing on his Isolation Pub Sessions series on Youtube. A few times he'll have what he calls "stops" (if memory serves) during a Morris tune - a pause and slowing of the tune for a few measures - which I guess coincides with the dances associated with those tunes. It's fun to watch the guest videos that jam with him as they adjust to those.
  5. This has been a very enjoyable series so far. He's uploading one a day, each featuring one of his squeezeboxes. In addition to playing a tune he opens them up and points out many interesting facts. They're uploaded at 6 A.M. in England, but since I'm in Oregon on the west coast of the U.S. I see them every night at 10. This may be the only concertina in the series but if you're also interested in melodeons and other accordions he brings out some gooduns. Good idea to post this Don.
  6. It did indeed sound wonderful. Thank you.
  7. Not a live play along, but may be of interest to some. John Spiers, excellent melodeon player of Bellowhead and Spiers & Boden fame has been conducting an "Isolation Pub Session" on Youtube. Each week he uploads a recording of several traditional tunes and invites musicians to play with him and record the results. Then he edits all the pieces together. A couple of days later he'll release a number of folks playing and usually another version with many more as more videos come in - on one I counted 25 people playing. Here's the latest example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7xb2GGupuc
  8. Well, that will stand out! I saw in the description the seller said it would be sent by Media Mail - but that looks like a typo. In the actual shipping charges it says $14.90 for Priority Mail, which I believe is the cost for a medium USPS Flat Rate Priority box. Media Mail definitely doesn't include concertinas.
  9. Here's a pretty easy way to find all of Judy's tutorials. Copy and paste "Hayden Tutorial (WHEEEEEE!)" into the search box at the upper right hand corner of this page. The quotation marks are helpful, otherwise you'll get a ton of search results. That search will give you the link to the first tutorial from 2013. Open that link and you'll see the first tutorial, and if you click on her avatar to the left of the tutorial you'll get Judy's profile which has links to the whole series of tutorials. Good luck
  10. Very nice - just visited your Youtube channel and saw you also uploaded some other goodies today. Really enjoyed them.
