  2. There's a fun bit at the end of this one! This is a bit of a spooky sounding tune. I wrote it after coming back from yet another failed drive around tiny rural lanes to get to Woolhope in Herefordshire*. I think it channels the frustration and turned-about feeling we had! Unusually for me this isn't about harmonies but instead about unexpected bellows directions and ambiguity offered by having two B/C buttons on the instrument (one on the left bottom side, the other on the right top) in different directions and playing around with that. Also a bit of pinky finger twisting in the middle section where things are largely on the lower end of the instrument. Ooh, and in the intro bit. It's a nice one to play with others because you can just alternate Em and F chords and it works - that has lead to some jazzy stuff! At the end of the video I get a bit syncopated and enjoy myself! *Now I'm a great navigator usually, but this one beat me (and I am relieved that I'm not alone in finding it hard to find the car-park!) We have been trying to go and walk on the Marcle ridge for a while now, with its gorgeous views east back to the Malvern Hills and views to the west towards Hereford and Wales. Turns out that there was a road signpost that had got turned about! Now, you could say the locals just didn't want any folk from Worcestershire coming over and touristing in their area. But actually the very landscape and underlying geology is well confusing too! Rings of ridges encircle Woolhope, providing a feeling of enclosed protection. There's a direct route in from the west!
  3. Full details at http://angloconcertinaplaygroup.org 4th / 5th February at The Folk 99 Westgate St Gloucester. Thats Gloucester UK not MASSACHUSETTS! Concert by Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne on the Saturday evening. The tuition and workshops for absolute beginners and improvers will be for the harmonic or 'native' style rather than the Irish discipline. All information is on the website or email me philwill73@gmail.com for more info.
  4. I've a lovely Morse Anglo for sale in North Wales, reduced to £1700. It's a GD and plays beautifully, all in tune and very nice. It's in excellent condition without wear to the underside of the bellows or anything. It has an extra option of a G drone on the left hand. I don't seem to be able to upload photos to this post so I've listed it on Facebook as well and you can see here: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/713422979655509/
  5. Have just bought a copy of Gary Coover's Anglo concertina in the harmonic style to further my understating of chord playing- My concertina is a G/D and the book is written with a C/G in mind. Are there abc notation versions of the tunes as written in the book anywhere, to save me having to create my own abc files to transpose. Or am I missing a trick here?
  6. Thanks to help from people in this forum, I was able to locate and make contact with the owner of Concertine Italia. Last Thursday, I visited the factory and spent a couple of hours talking with the two women who make pretty much every part of their instruments, with the exception of the reeds and reed blocks. A lot of people helped me along the way. I'm especially thankful to my new friend Enrico, who thought a visit to a concertina factory would be a good adventure and offered to drive me there, and to serve as translator. I can speak a little Italian but quickly got lost in the specifics. The owner, Mrs. Simona, is an awesome person as is her only full time employee Rosalia. Together they make a range of instruments including an adorable tiny 18 button chromatic, and the Italian organetto. They say that their most popular model is the Hayden. I am so grateful to have had this opportunity. I think you will like these awesome makers as much as I do. You can find the video at
  7. Posted on YouTube just yesterday, John Watcham playing Longborough versions of "Hey Diddle Dis" and "Swaggering Boney" with Taylor's Morris, for the birthday of Harry Taylor's great granddaughter. Gary
  8. Seth Hamon professional C/G Anglo, jeffries system. Tuned and modded from Wheatsone to Jeffries by Karel van der Leeuw. As new state. Fast responding and loud instrument, i played a few Anglo and English brands and this would be quite a fav for gigs. Only selling because of the wife complaining that it's too loud and i want to keep her happy .... PS EU import duties have been paid for, 2100 Euros, VAT invoice possible, or deducted for EU based VAT registered buyers. 21% less if sold outside the European Union, like the UK or USA. UK price 1550 GBP, USA 1970 U$D, shipping excluded. Shipping to UK and USA can be expensive; for safety i would recommend UPS or FedEx-TNT. Case included ...
  9. Thank you Concertina.net. I made a donation through PayPal. I have a practically brand new Swan concertina that I recently bought from McNeela Music in Dublin. I have decided that the concertina is not the instrument for me so I am selling this concertina. It comes in a nice hard case. In case you don’t know the Swan is a 30 button C/G Anglo concertina with Wheatstone layout.
  10. Hi folks! Hope this is interesting/of use! I've used the well-loved tune Brighton Camp (The Girl I Left Behind Me) to show how I approach playing both melody and accompaniments in various ways on the 20b C/G anglo. The video starts with me playing and then it goes on to a discussion/demo. Brighton Camp is used for a dance we do with my local side Bow Brook Border in Worcestershire, so when I’m not dancing I’ve been jamming along with melodeons/accordion/fiddle and a lot of their tunes are in G major. Some seem to lie easily on the anglo and immediately can be accompanied whilst playing melody. Others require a bit more thought and experimentation. Interesting though!
  11. Hello. Edgley C/G heritage; handmade reeds. Jeffries layout. Serial 431, recently tuned, with a sweet sound and in quite mint condition. Flightcase included 2500 GBP (2900 Euros) excl shipping. Bellows perfect, no damages, see last pic for bottom view. Located Netherlands, so maybe too expensive for UK imports due Brexit?
  12. New here. Just wondering if there's a set of plans or drawings available for a 30 key Anglo. I'm planning making one sometime soon. John
  13. Composed by James F. Hanley in 1917. Jim Besser - Baritone Anglo Concertina Randy Stein - English Concertina *originally performed in the Eastern North America Online Concertina Concert for World Concertina Day) https://youtu.be/hCSUlaf4DR4
  14. Morning! I have a Welsh folk tale inspired new tune Im discovering there are so many different ways you can accompany a tune on a 20button - and sustained chords (which are found at the end of this tune) are my latest enthusiasm! But they sure take some thought and bellows planning They really make me think of choral stuff and chapel organs which is lovely because I started playing as a wee dot on a reed organ. Are there names for all these types of accompaniments beyond being harmonic in nature? So far I can think of octaves (on all or some notes), countermelodies (imitations, inversions, in parallel 6ths of 3rds, equal written so the countermelody is a nice tune in itself), bass and chord (rhythmic, oom pah etc), countermelody + rhythmic chords, sustained chords, accompaniment of all the above types on r hand..and of course many styles and combinations of the above
  15. This is now available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYXTbhERw18 See attached pdf announcement! Note: this concert will happen on Saturday February 5, the day before World Concertina Day. 1-27-22 My Eclectic Repertoire.pdf
  16. The more I play anglo, the more I’m finding what an incredibly expressive instrument it is. Obviously it naturally lends itself so very well to movement and danceability in a tune, but I’m also realising just how well it can lend itself to other moods. Id love to hear any examples you might have of anything sounding sad, soulful or wistful and what ways/techniques you might personally convey that using that. Here’s an example of what I’m trying at the moment: I’m also trying something new for me here in that this is largely unadorned melody (and only sparsely harmonised in the second half) whereas before I’d be trying everything in my “box of tricks of accompaniment” it seems!
  17. Hi, I'm selling a Jose Claro CG anglo concertina I bought 4 months ago in Ireland. 30 buttons plus 1 low D drone on the thumb, metal ends. It is a bit smaller in size than normal size. I don't know for the taxes and shipping cost from france but I sell it for the price I bought it : 4050€ Please send me private messages if interrested for records or videos louis
  18. Thought you all might appreciate this sneak preview of a new book of Christmas tunes especially arranged for 30-button Anglo concertina, which will be available shortly through Amazon in the US, UK and Europe and hopefully through The Button Box as well. 110 pages, 50 tunes, utilizing the same tablature system as "Anglo Concertina in the Harmonic Style". In addition to old standards like "O Come All Ye Faithful" and "Hark the Herald Angels Sing", it also includes folk classics likes "Jacob's Well" and "Shepherds Arise". The melody lines of all tunes are shown in standard musical notation, so can be played by any concertina, or any other musical instrument. 2013-11-30: Mentioned elsewhere, but appropriate here as well, I'm adding one tune a day from the book to YouTube (angloconc channel) in the spirit of those wonderful old Advent Calendars. Enjoy! Gary
  19. Hi All, I am selling a Jefrries concertina. This instrument is in the key of Bb/F. It requires tuning. I have put a new set of hand straps on. I am asking €5,000 euro If anybody has any questions or needs any information feel free to ask. Based outside Dublin. Patrick
  20. Hello everyone I was browsing my local second hand shop today came across this odd little box, in which was an equally odd concertina. It was really cheap already and on sale on top of that (I ended up paying about 12 euro for it), so I thought "why not?" The production year can be narrowed down somewhat, given that it is produced in the "German Democratic Republic" (East Germany) so somewhere between 1949 and 1990. A quick google makes me believe that it is a Scholer, but perhaps someone can verify this? Also it seems to be a G/D instead of a C/G. It feels really cheap and is leaky, but sounds ok for what it is. The buttons are decently responsive and overall it feels much better than the 200 euro Chinese eBay crap I started with a year ago. Yes, I am one of those people I probably won't be choosing this over my Phoenix anytime soon, but I might give it to my niece so she has one of her own to get started with. She's tried playing my Phoenix and is annoyingly quick to learn
  21. Seth Hamon Professional with Voci a Mano reeds. C/G 30 button Wheatstone layout. 7-fold bellows! Very light and fast player, very well made; alas selling since i recently bought a traditionally built and quite expensive one. Instrument is in as new state. Bellows smell that way LoL. Due 450 Euro EU import duties that have been paid (mainly VAT charges) it makes sense for a buyer within the EU. No import duties then. Price 1900 Euros. BTW I stopped with paypal, it's a scam these days. Tip: get a free money wiring subscription with WISE.com or Intarem, and pay by Mastercard or Visa: You're off far cheaper for eventual exchange-rates and your money transfer is secure and almost immediate. Economy EU insured parcel shipping is around 70 euro's, Fedex is faster but more expensive. Case included. PM me if you live outside the EU, as i can probably get VAT back when exported again within a few months, and thus sell depending location about 19% cheaper. For US buyers i will include a COO form to avoid paying import duties. At costs of approx 100 euro's extra i can arrange a conversion to jeffries system layout, using 4 new Voci a Mano reeds. This will take about 10 days before shipping out.
  22. Looking for some sheet music in the Gary Coover style for c/g Anglo in Wheatstone layout! Any help would be appreciated.
  23. This is a lovely anglo, 30 button, G-D. I bought it from an individual who got it from the Button Box. It is in very good condition, has a sweet sound. The box is a Jeffries, as is the fingering. The bellows were replaced with Dipper bellows. The reeds were replaced with Wheatstone reeds. I'm just not using it. $4000, may consider trade for baritone C/G... or... Located in California, US.
  24. Here's my first attempt to explain, on camera, some background to a tune "Sprig" refers to the fact that this tune grew out of another one of my pieces - Hazel - whilst I was noodling about on the instrument (as you do!)
