  1. So I finally made up my mind to get a squeezebox for song accompaniment. I've never played one before, so I figured out an Anglo would be the easiest choice for a folksy beginner. However, I'm still in doubt whether I should opt for a 20-button or a 30-button model. To be more precise: I'm aiming for good old folklore sound - think Peter Bellamy, A.L.Lloyd , Roy Harris etc., shanties, ballads and all that. Nothing fancy, just some basic accompaniment. Also, I'm a woman with a rather high-pitched voice, and I'm mostly planning to accompany myself but could do with a small band (say, a concertina, a tin whistle and two singers). What would you recommend? 20 or 30? Thank you very much in advance.
  2. If you are around the DC Metro area this week and want a diversion from all the insanity: Randy Stein Music for Solo English Concertina Caboose Cafe, Thursday Jan 19th 6:30 - 8:30 and again at The Happy Tart, Sunday Jan 22nd 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM New Acoustic Traditions returns to the Grounded Coffee Shop Saturday January 20th Featuring The Squeezers 12:30-1:20 Lyssna (a Scandi trio) 1:30 - 2:30
  3. 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
  4. Spotted this interesting beast, it looks like an Anglo. For auction in Scarborough, Yorkshire, U.K. This Saturday 10th December https://www.davidduggleby.com/auctions/10122016/0/297A/Large31keyConcertinapossiblyLachenal.aspx?search=Concertina
  5. Anglo Aeola concertina by Wheatstone in C/G with 40 keys including a drone button giving C in both directions plus an air button. The instrument is tuned to A440 with 8 fold bellows supplied with a lined hard case. The righthand frame is stamped R 7a, indicating that this is a model 7a, i.e. Aeola. Wheatstone sales ledger SD04 confirms that this is a 7a, and gives a sale date of 8 April 1972. The bellows bear an internal label "Vervaadig dear: Wimpie croukamp 012 3794601" and an inscription 1/4/0003. This may be Dutch or Afrikaans. This label may confirm that the bellows have been replaced at some time, as possibly implied by the bellows being 8 fold rather than 6. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/192029103261?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Reason for sale - too complicated for my small brain! I ams also selling a bass viol, tenor shawm and a quartet of cornamusen (if I am permitted to mention these). I am in the north-west of England if anyone wishes to "try before you buy". I will to course make a donation to concertina.net in the event that the ultimate buyer first learnt about the instrument on this site. I should have listed this instrument on this site first, but I have already listed it on Ebay.
  6. I'm selling my GD AC Norman Anglo to get cash to buy a Jeffries Duet . It's in excellent condition , and comes with a hard case . It's the 30 key with Lachenal layout , with a bright sound and good action , all reeds work and it's airtight . Probably one of the best accordion reeded Anglos . You dont see many GDs, the waiting list got a new one is about 2 years . £1500 plus postage , or near offers . I can provide photos and YouTube clips on request .
  7. 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.
  8. Hello, I'm trying to do some restoration on a small George Jones concertina. It needs alot of work but first up is the non-functioning air button. I think this could be very easy. Here is a picture of the sprung air-button hinge. Perhaps all I need to do is re-glue that leather to the block? Or should I replace that piece of leather hinge altogether? It looks to me like the leather is in still usable shape but kinked from being off for so long. The concertina needs at least 1 pad and has no straps or strap buttons, but I see those readily on eBay. Everything else is there. (slightly off my own topic but the inside of my Wheatstone looks a lot nicer than the George Jones) Chris
  9. 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
  10. I'm tuning a 30 key lachenal at the moment, and having some trouble with 2 of the reeds on the top row right side - I keep trying to sharpen them but it gets flatter. Both are long enough that it's not because of filing in the wrong place by mistake. On the charts I've seen, both should be d# in a lachenal, but the ones in mine are both eb, I don't know if that has anything to do with the problem. ANyone have any idea why this might be?
  11. Hi all! I have just orders a Marcus Anglo which will be ready in roughly 4/5 months. I've only recently started playing and have a very bad Hohner d40 which is pretty much unplayable and my tutor has advised me to get something better ASAP. Would anyone be prepared to loan me something for a few months? I'd happily pay of course and would very much look after it! If anyone can help me out, let me know. I'm based in Kent
  12. I'm posting on behalf of a friend who has two concertinas for sale: C Jeffries Anglo in Bb/F concert pitch, 39 buttons, metal ends and buttons. It's a very nice instrument that plays well. Would buy it myself, if I could afford it! See pictures.. Looking for £4000. Lachenal Treble English Concertina, 48 buttons, wooden ends, metal buttons. Not sure about the reeds, but steel, I think. Can't really comment on how it plays, as I'm not an English concertina player, but seems in good playing order. £800. Any questions (such as the "extra" buttons on the Jeffries, just ask. Hopefully the pictures should give you a reasonable idea.
  13. I'm having to liberate some cash in order to, what else, buy another concertina. So, selling my 30b (plus D drone) Suttner A2 C/G anglo concertina. It's #281 and has recently been cleaned and examined by Greg Jowaisas. Very responsive and a great session instrument. Has a D drone. That's right, D. Otherwise, Jeffries tuning. Listing it here for $4,500 (plus shipping) and will donate $90 to concertina.net upon sale. Comes with case. I live in Southern California, so would prefer to sell to someone in the states. I'm unfamiliar with rules or taxes for shipping abroad, but would consider it. Photos attached here. -Chris Stuart
  14. I'm selling my Tedrow 30B Zephyr Anglo, with Wheatstone note arrangement. It's a wonderful instrument, and I played the living heck out of it for about eight years. I wore out the first set of bellows and handstraps. The bellows were replaced by Mr. Tedrow, and are played in, but in excellent shape. A local (Seattle-area) leatherworker produced the hand straps, still in like-new condition. This is a "hybrid" style instrument with accordion reeds. The bellows are 7-fold, which is helpful because the instrument is unusually small in dimension (6" between opposite flats on the faceplate). I'll prefer a U.S. buyer if possible (I'm in Seattle), but will entertain other locales. I believe these are presently selling for $2.5K, and I'm asking $2K in view of the visible wear (especially cosmetic flaking of the finish) but otherwise excellent playability. Please PM me if interested. I'll entertain reasonable offers, but am hoping to stick near to this price partly in the interest of paying the tax man. Here's some video of me playing the instrument with the ensemble The Toy Boats, and here it is with a pint of beer (for scale): A few other shots: (edited on advice to show faceplate measurement from flat-to-flat as opposed to corner-to-corner)
  15. Hi All, Could anyone direct me to a shantyman or woman giving lessons in Boston or nearby areas? I play a C/G Anglo and am primarily interested in Shanties, but I would like to know more about dance tunes as well as accompaniment. In general, I have a lot to learn. I've had my concertina for fifteen years, but I never really progressed past playing a handful of tunes. Thanks. I will check this forum, but you can also reach me at frank.montesonti@gmail.com as well. Best, Frank.
  16. Keith Kendrick & Sylvia Needham, on tour from the UK, present an evening concert of English ballads, songs, and music in Montague Center, MA, on June 18, 2016. Their wide-ranging repertoire leans towards Derbyshire dialect and maritime. Between them, they play English, duet, and Anglo concertinas, and they are known for their striking a capella harmony as well. The afternoon workshop, "Playing by Ear: the How and the Why" is appropriate for all English and duet concertinas, and for Anglo concertinas in C/G or G/D. Participants should have a handle on playing the instrument, as this is not a lesson in how to play, as such. Sponsored by The Button Box, in Sunderland, MA. For more information and to register for the workshop, see http://www.buttonbox.com/kendrick.html or contact The Button Box.
  17. After years of working away at a backlog of C/G's, 70 concertinas later, I finally had a chance to do the redesign work to make both Wheatstone layouts and low pitch reed pans. I just finished my first and personal A/E which instantly became my favorite concertina in the world. Anyone interested can order anything from G/D to D/A in either my standard Kensington layout which is great for ITM or the Wheatstone layout for those who are used to it or like it's uniform pattern in the accidental row. Straight Jeffries is also a change I have made for a few people, though it is nearly indistinguishable from the Kensington Standard. I just updated the website with details for anyone interested.

  18. 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
  19. I bought this instrument last year hoping my wife or some of the kids might learn it, but none of them did. I have Jeffries for my own playing, so this should go to a home, where will be played. I am looking for £2100 + shipping from Czech republic. It is few years old, but still feels like new to me. Jeffries layout and C/F (pull/push) on left thumb. I discussed this instrument with John Connor himself and from the better end grills and gold tooled bellows this is his Jeffries copy. No need to mention, this one has traditional reeds. Few pictures and video being played here, I can post more or play it for you over Skype if you like. I might consider left-handed keyed flute as a trade-in. https://youtu.be/FRwDiL5HIhg
  20. 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
