  1. SOLD 30-button Anglo Concertina, key C/G with case. I bought it for my husband around 25 years ago and he has never played it and it doesn't have any brand name on it. Perfect condition: $150 Best, Lily obrienlily@gmail.com
  2. Hi folks, Unfortunately I need to sell my concertina. It has been my main concertina for a good few years now and has served me well. This instrument is one of the earlier models and as such has a beautiful tone you won't find on the newer instruments. These are very hard instruments to find. A new Suttner with the same specs is €5000 with a four year waiting list but these are slightly different instruments compared to the earlier models. It's an airtight instrument with very fast action and has been well played and looked after over the years. This would be a perfect instrument for an intermediate to advanced player. Get in touch if you want more info. Thanks, Alan
  3. I hope to institute an ongoing acoustic music venue here in Alexandria, VA at the Grounded Coffee Shop. This cafe regularly supports live music every Sunday. It tends toward duos and trios with a country influence. The owners have agreed to try out a more folk oriented music venue. The first is Saturday Oct 29th from 1:00- 4:00 PM. There will be three diverse musical groups playing (including the Squeezers). See the attached flyer and I hope you can make it. rss
  4. Cameron DeWhitt brings his banjo and recording rig around to visit old-time musicians that he admires. He interviews them, learns their tunes and records the music they make together. Last February he came by my place and now it’s up on the web. http://www.camerondewhitt.com/getupinthecool/jodykruskal Cameron says “Welcome to Get Up in the Cool: Old Time Music with Cameron DeWhitt and Friends. This week’s friend is concertinist Jody Kruskal. If you don't know what a concertina is, that's normal—Jody will explain everything, just know that you're in for a treat. Jody Kruskal is definitely one of my favorite people to play with; when I’m wandering around at night at the festivals I listen for that unique quality that only jams with concertinas can have; it’s like you meeting a german hiker on the appalachian trail; foreign but compatible”. You can listen to an hour of lively conversation and American tunes on Anglo concertina and banjo including Coon Dog, Josio and a few of my originals: Swaggering Sylvie, Flying South, and Krazy for Kasha.
  5. On the 22nd and 23rd of September, the Irish concertina legends Cormac Begley (Co. Kerry) and Jack Talty (Co.Clare) can be heard in two intimate, all-acoustic, concerts in The Netherlands and Belgium. The weekend after that, on the 24th and 25th of September, they give a two-day workshop where they will be teaching tunes, technique, interpretation and many other aspects of Irish traditional concertina playing. The location of the concert on the 22nd of September is Baarn, which is very close to the city of Utrecht. The Friday after that they will be playing in Mechelen, Belgium. The workshop is located in Oud-Beijerland which is near Rotterdam and about 70 minutes drive from Schiphol Airport. Please feel free to share this information; there is still a place available for the workshop and we welcome international guests! All information can be found at https://www.irishtradmusic.nl

  7. Hello I am in the UK and travelling to Europe soon on a holiday and am considering insuring my concertina for the duration of the holiday. Has anyone in the UK had any experience with this? Could someone possibly recommend an insurance company? Best wishes, Jake
  8. Hello Concertina.net concertina gurus. I am the proud owner of a Crane duet, Wheatstone, with a Salvation Army tag. The box itself is rosewood I believe with brown leather bellows, somebody at SA decided it should be their favorite color: um "black"... and has done a rather poor job of refinishing the instrument. Ah but here's the quirk - it only has 35 buttons, but the right side highest accidental key on the top left row, normally Eb, is instead a clearly in tune "A" note. This gives the player a final high A note to complete the A minor scale. I wonder if this was by design/request, or just an accident of construction/restoration?
  9. Hello Concertina.net community. I have read through many of your forums for several years, but I'm trying to find a very specific box. I'm looking for a Crane duet, preferably 42-55 buttons as I have a Wheatstone 35 key Duet. thanks Chris
  10. Jon Boden´s interview about going on a solo tour. You can hear it singing an playing his nice Maccann Duet Concertina around 1:40 [YOUTUBE] [/YOUTUBE]
  11. I'm just starting up and looking for a good used concertina- Anglo in C/G. 30 Button I'm not looking to spend a fortune, as I'm not sure it will be "my thing." I am weary of all the cheaper ones on Ebay. I'd prefer to spend a little extra and not get a piece of junk. I find that forums like this tend to be a wealth of knowledge. Hoping someone out here has a decent used one in good working order. Looking to be less than $1K USD Feel free send me an email- MrRingmassa@hotmail.com
  12. Morning all, I am new to the anglo concertina past 6months and working my way through Gary Coover's ession tunes book which is great., I have a scarletti (budget i know) 20 key. I'm finding many of the single note tunes a bit "hollow" and have been adding 'vamp' cords to try and beef things in up/add a bit off life. Is this acceptable, am I going to bastardise the intended sound of the pieces? I'm trying to get my ear in by listening to lost of session tunes on spotify etc..... If anyone else does this what's your approach? ON another note in the same vein, what about oom-pah cords? I find these a particular challenge to figure out on the anglo due to the necessary bellows changes, likewise drone notes- non sooner have you found the note it disappears as the main melody moves on with a bellows change by necessity! I'm thinking these are probably common problems that many beginners come across. At the back of my mind I feel the tunes may sound less hollow on a better instrument with more notes and perhaps that's why i'm feeling this! thoughts a welcome
  13. “Patriotism, Nostalgia and Amnesia: Remembering and forgetting Clare music during the Age of Rebellion.” 2016 Sonny Murray Memorial Lecture (Consairtín 2016) Friday, April 1, 2016 6:30pm-7:30pm Old Ground Hotel, Ennis, County Clare, Ireland ALSO CONCERTINA BY CANDLELIGHT le Gearóid Ó hAllmhúráin agus a chairde Saturday, April 2, 2016 10:30pm Rowan Tree Café Bar, Ennis How did local and international forces impact Clare musical traditions at the dawn of the new century? Presenting the 2016 Sonny Murray Memorial Lecture, Clare native Dr Gearóid Ó hAllmhuráin will use musical extracts, interviews and photos from his extensive research to paint a musical picture of the changing political and music landscape of Clare. The influence of cylinder recordings of continental concertina playing, the role of Captain Francis O’Neill, women musicians and the arrival of jazz will be juxtaposed against the political impact of de Valera, the GAA, brass and reed military bands and much more. Ó hAllmhuráin is currently Johnson Chair in Québec and Canadian Irish Studies at Montreal’s Concordia University. This talk is a sneak preview of Gearóid's long overdue book Flowing Tides-History and Memory in an Irish Soundscape, due this summer from Oxford University Press. A prolific writer, Gearóid's ‘A Pocket History of Irish Traditional Music’ (1998, O’Brien Press, Dublin) has sold over 15,000 copies. Ennis born Professor Gearóid Ó hAllmhuráin is recognised as one of the world’s leading academics authorities in Irish studies and cultural heritage. An ethnomusicologist, author, musician and historian specializing in Irish music, diaspora, cultural and memory studies, he was also a founder of Dísirt Tóla with the Sharon and Garry Shannon and friends, and earned five All-Irelands on concertina, uilleann pipes and as a member of the Kilfenora Céilí Band. Thanks for spreading the news. Looking forward to a great weekend!
  14. It's a Stagi English A 48 S Tenor without decorations, it has a stagi bag with it. The bag cost about 60 USD(but I paid in SEK, so it's approximately), the concertina itself cost 653 USD(paid both in SEK ofc) It's barely played and I think it had decent quality, but I can't say since I do not know much about these. Been in it's bag for most of the year. The reason for selling it is not due to any disappointments with the product but because I can't play it very well at all. I am a keyboardist and I'm not very experienced in that area yet either. So I'm probably going to buy a melodica to "replace" it, being a portable free reed instrument as well, difference being that I know how to play keys and have had experience with playing melodicas before. If anyone has any other idea of where I could ask on the net about the price, I'd be happy to receive a link to the place. EDIT: The title was cut off, this thread is asking about what price I should sell it at.

  18. Hi everyone. I´m sure I´m not the first Maccann player who ask this. I have been playing this system for a year now and I have the feeling of not getting better. There are no videos I could find of Maccann duet teaching and there are only a couple videos on Youtube of people playing it. Also living in Buenos Aires, Argentina does not help. I´m the only concertina player in maybe the whole country (and this is a big country) So I would be very thankful to anyone who can give me some tips or info. Anyone giving lessons online? Thank you so much!

I purchased this Concertina from Barleycorn Concertinas in England, and recently (2013) had it serviced at The Button Box in Massachusetts.
