I'm currently putting together a book of songs and tunes of the American Civil War that will include a variety of arrangements and tablature for playing them on a 20-button Anglo concertina (since 20+ button Anglos didn't exist yet at that time period). Of course, the melodies will also be playable on any other concertina system and on most other musical instruments. With a wide range of patriotic, jingoistic, maudlin songs and old time tunes popular in that time period, there's a lot to choose from - Stephen Foster, Henry Clay Work, George F. Root, etc. I'm trying to whittle it down to 50 songs and tunes, but it could easily stretch to 60 before all is said and done. So, if any of you have any particular favorites that you play, or would like to learn, let me know as soon as possible! With luck, the tunebook will be available via Amazon by the first of next month. Time to stir up those Blue and Gray musical sentiments! Gary
