We had another successful Concertinas at Palestine weekend. The weather cooperated, was cool and clear, and we had concertina players, from experienced to beginning, from as far away as Wisconsin. Anglo, English, and Hayden and MacCann duet systems were represented. Jody Kruskal was our workshop leader and guest performer, and was again a hit with his enthusiastic teaching, and masterful singing and playing. The tunes taught were "Sandy Boys", "Been to the East, Been to the West", and "Cora Dye". We also had a well-attended slow jam and a master class. Everybody seemed to have a good time and get inspired. One of the groups on the bill at Old Pal was the rousing Orpheus Supertones, with Walt Koken, who was a member of the Highwoods Stringband back in the 70s. We, of course, took time to sample the local cuisine, including BBQ and Mexican food. All in all, it was a great time, with great music, people, and food.
