I like this reel because it's a good crossover and around here in Nova Scotia, both Cape Breton and Irish players know it. But I"m having a hellava time getting it up to speed. Any suggestions for fingerings on a Wheatstone Morse? Or is this tune simply not concertina friendly? Edited to add: just b/c Mohsen Amini can play it at speed doesn't mean that mere mortals can... All tricks and tips appreciated. Christine
Hello All! My Dad just turned 80, so I wanted to go on a trip with him and suggested that we go to Ireland to hear some tunes and he said: "Meh, howsabout Venice!" So I'm off to Venice today. Any recommendations? Any sessions I should seek out or music shops I should make it a point to get to? Thanks. Christine
This follows on from a topic about Irish Traditional Music played on the English concertina and my attempts at learning and playing a couple of tunes I heard and liked a while back. Though admittedly not a great fan of ITM, I occasionally went to a local Irish session, some years ago and learned a couple of tunes I liked. These were Out on the Ocean and the more recent Calliope House, written by Dave Richardson of Boys of the Lough. On this recording, I play Out on the Ocean slower to start with and play it again at the end of Calliope House, quite a bit faster for a change/challenge! Comments welcome. https://soundcloud.com/aeolaman/out-on-the-ocean-calliope-house Chris
