  1. If you are around the DC Metro area this week and want a diversion from all the insanity: Randy Stein Music for Solo English Concertina Caboose Cafe, Thursday Jan 19th 6:30 - 8:30 and again at The Happy Tart, Sunday Jan 22nd 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM New Acoustic Traditions returns to the Grounded Coffee Shop Saturday January 20th Featuring The Squeezers 12:30-1:20 Lyssna (a Scandi trio) 1:30 - 2:30
  2. I hope to institute an ongoing acoustic music venue here in Alexandria, VA at the Grounded Coffee Shop. This cafe regularly supports live music every Sunday. It tends toward duos and trios with a country influence. The owners have agreed to try out a more folk oriented music venue. The first is Saturday Oct 29th from 1:00- 4:00 PM. There will be three diverse musical groups playing (including the Squeezers). See the attached flyer and I hope you can make it. rss

    Kruskal Moon Set

    Jim Besser and I on and off play various current artists pieces. Jody being one of them. We took two of Jody's tunes that we play and put them into a short set: Fickle Moon and Pumpkin Moon. This recording was at a rehearsal with just the two of us. Notice the difference in the sounds of the two different systems and the way we do our phrasing. https://soundcloud.com/user827948939/fickle-moonpumpkim-moon

  11. About a year or so ago Jim Besser and I started playing together and found music and ways to make the anglo and the EC work nicely together. We then added the young and very talented melodeon player, Gus Vorhees and started the Squeezers. Our repertoire seems to defy categorizing as we play an eclectic selection of styles and music from genres, and time periods.. In searching YouTube I found several groups and bands that have a concertina in them or the lead is a concertina or accordion. There are groups like Rachel Hall's Concertina Orchestra, the Bootle Concertina Band and others that have more than one free reed player in the group. Also a few that have Chemitzer concertinas Like Bill Czerniak Band. So anyone else have a group of multiple free reed instruments currently performing? If so what is it, where are you, and what kind of music do you play? rss

    Stuck In A Key

    Recently Jim Besser gave me the dots to Tra Veglia E Sonno, an Italian mazurka, to learn for our group The Squeezers. I have played the tune for years in the key of G minor which evidently is not a very good key for Anglo. So the music he gave to me is in Dm/D. Now its not a difficult piece so much that for so many years I played it in one key that transposing to a different key turned out to be a challenge at first, causing a bit of a brain freeze. Finally, after playing in the new key over and over, I began to structure my previous arrangement and even found some additional phrasing and chord structures. Nice to know the kid's still learning. just saying.... rss
