  1. I’m working on a two part reel called “Crowleys Reel”, which I’m sure most of you are familiar with, although I’m not! I’ve always heard a tune by the name of “Master Crowleys Reel” but “Crowleys Reel” is much different and new to me! I love the tune but I’m having trouble finding recordings of it on YouTube! Do any of you play it and if so could you post a recording?! Cheers! I play a Mcneela Anglo c/d.
  2. Can anyone suggest a good source of advice on playing Irish music on the English? I've been playing for almost 40 years now but only a handful of Irish tunes and never with much decoration. I've preferred to play Irish music on wooden flute for the last 15 years. Although I play a bit of anglo, I'm much more comfortable on English so I've set myself the task of developing a decent Irish style on EC. Predictably, most of what's available focuses on the anglo, including online tuition. Who should I be listening to? (I'm familiar players like Anderson and Thoumire, of course). One particular goal is a convincing roll (no rhyme intended!). As a flute player, I know that an A roll, for example, is not best described as a 5 note sequence of ABAGA. A concertina ain't a flute but that 5 note sequence doesn't work for me. I achieve the best rhythm with a simple ABGA. Or maybe it's safer to stick to triplets and rapidly repeated notes? Any thoughts or useful sources gratefully received.
  3. 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
