  6. A very nice comment on "The Concertina Diaires" tutor (Heather Greer). A buyer, who is from Ireland but now living in C&E Europe, while waiting for his copy of the book to arrive, worked his way through the sample pages from the book that are up on our website, www.IrishTunebook.com. "I have read your sample pages [on your website], and from these alone I have learned more, and more quickly, than all the other books that I have on this subject put together. Please feel free to use this comment in your advertisments." Colin A. Just thought I'd pass that nice comment along. Oh,

  8. 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 wo
  9. Looking for thoughts about making Irish tunes sound "more Irish". Does changing bellows direction on every note, or every other note make a difference...as opposed to playing several notes on a draw or push? Emphasizing the first note in a measure? Any other tips? Thanks! I'm playing a C/G Anglo.
  10. A few years ago when I was starting with the concertina, I met someone who had been to several Noel Hill workshops. She was trying to teach me an "ornament" (more of a trick, really) for playing DEF# triplets, or was it F#ED triplets? It seems to me that she was just playing GED instead (or DEG...). Does that make sense to anyone who has learned from Noel Hill? I can't really hear NH doing this on records, but it might be one of those things that you'd have to see him do. Thanks in advance! Greg

  12. I've undertaken to play a couple of tunes for a very experienced Morris dancer to dance to at our folk club - Ladies' Pleasure (Bledington) and Nutting Girl (Bampton). Fortunately for me they are both in G, so I've at least pressed all those buttons before. But, as a learner Irish player on the three row Anglo, my instinct is to play most of it in the C row and cross into the G row for the higher notes. The two tunes seem to fit nicely this way, but my question is am I likely to miss out anything important in terms of style? Terry

  14. Here is a set of my favourite O'Carolan tunes (some minor flaws, recorded live in one turn).
  15. Hello, friends! Last weekend, we made a little Irish party at home. We were six persons (three couples), and each couple had to play some Irish songs (or, at least, a celtic theme). This is difficult for us, because we paly other kind of music (folk music, but not Irish music). But, finally, we played some Irish and celtic songs. We gived ourself the name of "The Mirobrigans" (near my village there was an ancient city called Mirobriga) and, with concertina, we played the famous song "Si beagh si mhor", and this was the result: http://youtu.be/-kS2_kXhYus
  16. When discussing modes this tune came to my mind, and had already been discussed to some extent there too - guess I once learned it from an early Dubliners recording, used to play it on the PA back then. Couldn't resist to give it a try with the EC; a first-day-recording, which is thus still a bit rough, but to make it flow perfectly it might take me some more time than just a day or two added. Anyway, should give the idea of my modal (or non-modal) understanding of this jolly tune... Cook in the Kitchen As always - any comments appreciated! Best wishes - Wolf
