  1. In spit of the blistering cold we had a good showing.
  2. Is there anywhere I can find old recordings and print articles online. Is there an archive of concertina stuff? Especially, I would love to get hold of Alf Edwards 'Art of the Concertina' album. I know I could probably buy a vinyl copy (at great expense) on ebay, but then I'd need to get something to play it on too. It doesn't seem to be around on CD. Has anyone uploaded it for download anywhere? The other thing I'd love to get again is Lou Killen's article on playing English concertina from a 1971 Sing Out magazine (April/May, Vol 20 #4) It was accompanied by an
  3. Well, it’s certainly not the amazing Jowaisas Christmas Pyramid, more like the Coover Autumnal Quadrangle, but I’m putting up for sale four concertinas that have been sitting around taking up space when they should be getting played instead. Wheatstone 30-button Anglo concertina #51362 in C/G - $1850 Metal buttons, metal ends, early 1950’s, dovetailed steel reeds (regular reeds, not crimped), tuned to concert pitch, 8-fold leather bellows, Wheatstone handstraps. Recently refurbished and retuned by Greg Jowaisas who thought the reeds were “better than average” for instrum
  4. I got these in a bag of other parts from a former, brass-reeded EC. Missing a few reeds, and many of them are mixed up - probably fell out and were shoved back in willy-nilly. The number, if you can't make it out, is 23965. While I expect odds are it is (was) a Lachenal, the action parts (levers and posts) are gone, while the rest of the casework is in small pieces. I'm primarily an anglo player, and the few ECs I've looked in have a circular paper on the reed pan giving the note names, and the maker or at least a later rebuilder. Also, the Lachenals I know and love (and the others too) h
  5. I've decided to sell one of my two Aeola tenor-trebles (unjustifiable extravagance to keep both!). I really struggled to decide which one to part with but have chosen the metal-ended 56-button one, serial number 26248 (which dates it at 1914). It has a bright tone, as you'd expect with a metal-ended Wheatstone, and has a fast, highly responsive action with a very free-speaking, lush sound and wide dynamic range - fabulous for tunes but also for gentle song accompaniment. It was professionally serviced about six years ago and the bellows, springs, pads, reeds and valves are in very good order
  6. Carrick Hornpipe performed by Lea Nicholson (English concertina) and Naomi Randall (guitar). This tune was originally written for the Northumbrian Smallpipes by the legendary smallpipe player Billy Pigg
  7. 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
  8. My lovely - in fantastic condition - 45 button Morse Geordie Tenor English Concertina is up for sale. It's a bit like a treble, but has an extra row so it goes to a 5th lower (i.e. the lowest note is a C rather than a G). It is in excellent condition, has fast action and plays beautifully (I don't though). I have a smaller Morse EC, which I am keeping, but I need to sell this one. I am a lifelong string player (mandolin etc) and 1 concertina is enough for me to enjoy. Rosewood stained Cherry ends, black Delrin buttons, brass fittings, riveted action, 6-fold bellows, and high-qualit
  9. I was wondering if anyone could offer an in depth review of Alistair Anderson’s tutorial DVD? There’s been some discussion on these forums but I’ve only found one person who had actually watched it once and said they expected to learn a lot from it. I’ve just purchased my first EC, (Lachenal New Model). I’m a fiddle player with loads of Trad, New England Contra Tunes in my head. I don’t need a tutor for learning to read music, nor do I need a book of tunes. What I need is to figure out how to get the tunes out of the instrument! I’m becoming familiar with the fingerboard and can play jig
  10. I have just recieved my new wooden-ended Aeola TT from Theo Gibb. Apart from doing a brilliant job of restoration he has tuned it in 1/5 comma meantone for me. I am not aware of having heard an ec in this tuning before and I was apprehensive about doing it. After consulting on here I decided to go ahead and am glad I did. Chords are definately sweeter and more rounded with no harsh heterodyne beating, at least in the keys I normally play in. When there is any slight discord it is no worse than an instrument in ET (eg f#maj, a chord I never use). On the whole I am very pleased with this tuning
  11. Theo Gibb is about to start work on an Aeola TT for me. The subject of tuning has come up; ET or mean tone? I play both tunes and songs and for the latter would like the sweeter 3rds but do not wish to compromise playing tunes with other people. For tunes I use all the normal folk keys but use some less common ones for song e.g. Fm. Has anyone direct experience of a MT-tuned EC? What advice can you give? Many thanks Dick Trickey.

  14. a wonderful Spanish tune from 1929 by Nilo Mendez. I used an accordion arrangement by Evodio Rivera. Still working on getting my fingers to memorize it but thought I'd put it out there. rss https://soundcloud.com/user827948939/aquellos-ojos-verdes
  15. Good evening ladies and gents. Just introducing myself to you now that I'm finally about to embark on my concertina adventure. As a complete beginner, I don't expect to be making any useful contributions to the forums for some time yet, but I'm very excited for this new challenge and I really want to tell people. You've drawn the short straw! The English system appeals to me, for it's logicality of layout and versatility as I'm not looking to become fluent in any particular musical style......in fact I'm not expecting to become very capable at all! That's not false modesty, btw, it's r
  16. Hi good people! I was wondering if there was anyone in Pennsylvania who might be willing to give a lesson on the English Concertina. I am in central PA, but am willing to travel quite far for an occasional lesson. After several years of teaching myself, I can muddle through by hitting notes, even the correct ones fairly rapidly when appropriate. I believe that my primary deficit is in the artistry that will turn those notes into music. I like playing a wide variety of music, from traditional Irish and Scottish, to classical. Have been having fun with some tangos, lately too. I think poi
  17. I have a beautiful Morse Geordie Tenor English concertina. It has a greater range of notes than I will ever use and so I was wondering if anyone would want to swap their Morse Albion Treble for my Tenor. I would benefit from a smaller instrument and somebody could benefit from the greater range of low notes. Cheers Howard
  18. My Jackie English Concertina is for sale. I can't find the soft case but I have the tutorial. The instrument itself is pretty much as new. I have recently bought a Morse EC. £275 or near offer Howard
  19. Just a note to let you know that I have been teaching English Concertina at Music Under the Southern Cross for the last 6 years. It is a live-in School lasting 6 days starting on Sunday evening and going to Friday lunch time. This year we had 7 English concertina students and I was assisted for two days by Sarah Wade. For those interested in attending please go to www.celt.com.au and follow the link to the School. The School has classes in English Concertina, Harp, Scottish Fiddle, Irish Fiddle, Canadian Fiddle, Uilleann Pipes, Mandolin, Guitar, Tin Whistle and Traditional Singing. The classes
