  1. Coming soon from Rollston Press... Reg Hall's detailed biography of Anglo concertina player Scan Tester: I Never Played to Many Posh Dances: Scan Tester, Sussex Musician, 1887-1972. 148 pages, including interviews with Scan and other musicians, plus many rare historical photographs. Originally published in 1990 and out-of-print for many years, this re-issue is not just a photocopy - it is being digitally reconstructed to exactly match the original, and will soon be available again in paperback and Kindle. Since this is a reissue of Reg's book there is no music or tablature - but plans are in the works for it to be followed up by The Anglo Concertina Music of Scan Tester in conjunction with Will Duke. I'll post a tune of Scan's shortly as an example of his playing style. It is an honor to be able to bring this wonderful book back to life, and it is highly recommended to anyone interested in the history of village musicians from the last century. (And yes, I know there is a low-res scan of the book on a website, but this is for those who like books and higher-res reading material). Gary
