    Delete. Sorry.
  2. I am selling my 4-CD set, “300 Gems of Irish Music for All Instruments,” for only $5.99 USD. See https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/300-gems-recordings-mp3s-or-set-of-4-cds/. This price is good through March 31st, 2018. All six of my Irish music books and most of my CDs are also heavily discounted throughout March. For all the info, go to: https://greylarsen.com/webstore/st-patricks-month-sale/. This audio collection is a companion to my book “300 Gems of Irish Music for All Instruments.” (See https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/300-gems-of-irish-music-for-all-instruments/). All 300 tunes are notated in the book. Free excerpts are available as PDF downloads (at http://greylarsen.com/webstore/books/). (Scroll down a bit to find the excerpts.) Many of the transcriptions pay homage to recordings by great musicians and groups such as Matt Molloy, Martin Hayes, Sharon Shannon, Mary Bergin, Kevin Burke, James Kelly, Willie Clancy, Altan, the Bothy Band and the Mulcahy Family, as well as early 20th century recordings from revered masters Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran, Dennis Murphy, Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny and others. The tunes are notated in a style that makes them equally accessible to players of fiddle, flute, whistle, accordion, concertina, harp, keyboard, guitar, mandolin, banjo, uilleann pipes – to all melody players. I play the tunes on Irish flute, tin whistle, and 49 of the tunes on my Wheatstone 12-sided anglo concertina from the 1930s. (See photo below.) This is an excellent resource for repertoire building and makes a nice gift. Also, I designed the tune sequence such that good medleys result when you play consecutive tunes one after another. (At least I think so.) To buy only the 49 concertina tunes, go here: https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/49-concertina-tunes-from-300-gems-of-irish-music-for-all-instruments/ For $9.99, you can get the entire collection as 300 downloadable mp3s, and save shipping costs. This costs less than getting the CDs if you are in Canada, Mexico or outside of North America. The mp3s can be found here: https://greylarsen.com/shop/product/300-gems-recordings-mp3s-or-set-of-4-cds/. Choose “MP3s” from the drop-down menu. The CD set is so inexpensive because I have piles of them on my shelves! Time to move them out into the world. I make no profit at this price, but I have the pleasure of spreading the music around. Thank you for your attention! - Grey
  3. Reposting this as I am still looking to sell a Jeffries concertina as above. In C/G with 26 keys, making it a lighter instrument. It's also very loud. The accidentals are C#/ Eb A/G Ab/Bb on the Left hand and Eb/C# Ab/G C#/Bb on the Right. metal ends original bone keys. Assessed by a knowledgeable friend as in good working order. Looking for around £3600 plus postage. Please see pictures as attached and feel free to ask any more questions, many thanks Jo, Sheffield UK
  4. 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, and in the coming week I aim to post downloadable music, with 'fingerings' for 30-button Anglo (Wheatstone but you can modify as necessary for Jeffries), two nice jigs in D major that go together very nicely as a complementary 2-D set: 'Seamus Connolly's' and the lovely, twisty-turny, 'Rosemary Lane'. If you want to really major out on an all-D set, adding in Tobin's Jig makes for a good third jig to include.

  6. 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 workshop is located in Oud-Beijerland which is near Rotterdam and about 70 minutes drive from Schiphol Airport. Please feel free to share this information; there is still a place available for the workshop and we welcome international guests! All information can be found at https://www.irishtradmusic.nl
  7. 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.
  8. 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

    Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya

    a third song about me Johnny: Johnny I Hardly Knew Ya
  10. 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

    O'carolan Set

    Here is a set of my favourite O'Carolan tunes (some minor flaws, recorded live in one turn).
  13. 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

    Cook In The Kitchen

    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
