  1. Thanks, all who offered synonyms for "concertina player." So, I sang my new song at our local last night. The late-staying sessioners contributed chords and a musical interlude. No recordings exist, and it was a one-off, so you'll have to use your imagination. But here are the lyrics: The Devil’s a Sonopneumaticist He was a worn-out demon, too tired to sin. We recognized him as he walked in. The faithful asked, “Where’s yer violin?” He said he lost it in a poker game with St. Michael and his Seraphim. Don’t you know the Devil, he’s a squeezer He’s a hexagonal wheezer And he plays his tunes and he taps his cloven foot. And he drinks expensive whiskey Which the barman waters down And the tunes they suffer when the Devil comes to town. He said, “Now I play the concertina.” He pulled one out and commenced to squeeze her. He wrestled out a terrible din o din. Then he twisted his mouth into an evil impish grin. Don’t you know the Devil, he’s a squeezer He’s a hexagonal wheezer And he plays his tunes and he taps his cloven foot. And he drinks expensive whiskey Which the barman waters down And the tunes they suffer when the Devil comes to town. I don’t believe in Heaven, I don’t believe in Hell I don’t believe in Jesus, tho’ I wish him well. I believe in jigs and reels and my Carroll. She’s got a 7-fold bellows and a sound like sweet caramel. Don’t you know the Devil, he’s a squeezer He’s a hexagonal wheezer And he plays his tunes and he taps his cloven foot. And he drinks expensive whiskey Which the barman waters down And the tunes they suffer when the Devil comes to town.

Everyone is welcome, especially if you'd like to sing or play. We mostly sing and play traditional music from the British Isles, but we enjoy other styles as well. We always start off with some English dance tunes for anyone with an instrument to join in. We have a loyalty card. Six visits earn you £5 off an evening when admission is £5 or more. It's £6 tonight. Bring instruments to join in some Irish tunes as well.

    Ghost Riders In The Sky

    Ghost Riders In The Sky - An American cowboy song based on the ancient "Wild Hunt" legend, written by Stan Jones in 1948 and recorded by many. I'm performing this on anglo concertina with a mighty gathering of singers, Jan. 17, 2016 at the Exceedingly Good Song Night https://www.facebook.com/events/1386525341586179/, hosted by Ken Schatz (on the right) at the Jalopy Theater in Brooklyn, NY. https://youtu.be/nH5Ks-lwzXw
  4. Here's a follow-up for the self-accompanied-song-departement: Now The Tyrant Hath Stolen My Dearest Away (link updated; here's my original post: take 1, as discussed in the first seven posts) Inspired by Irene's and Ralph's Version (and the impressive singing this great tune by my Swedish friend Sebastian), with words compiled from the older broadsheet source... First take, but maybe not that bad anyhow... Please comment!
  5. Three other self-accompanied songs: The Town I Loved So Well Shallow Brown Rolling Home Thank you for listening! Best wishes - Wolf
  6. I have to advertise three newly recorded and posted songs: Piper to the End (Knopfler) re-recorded One More Day (a Shanty with special selection of verses) As I Roved Out (variant of "Trooper and Maid") Hope some of you will enjoy! Best - Wolf
  7. I have set up a new You Tube channel to demonstrate playing of the Crane duet concertina- firstly for some of my songs, although I may add some tunes later. The instrument is a 1926, 58-button Wheatstone, steel-reeded duet. Hope you enjoy them. The songs are: "Jim Jones" -an Australian transportation ballad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6F7IL-PjVtc "I Only Have Eyes For You" - a classic Tin Pan Alley song written in 1932 by Al Dubin and Harry Warren. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2bKF8FaNPp4 "My Own Dear Galway Bay" - not the ' Galway Bay" song that begins :" If you ever go across the sea to Ireland...." made famous by Bing Crosby...but the trad' song, written in 1895 by Francis Fahey, that is sung by the people of Galway.( a much better tune in my humble opinion). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4u9yqYLqNk "Tie' em up" - a self-written, sort of angry protest " shanty" - about the limiting of fishermen's days at sea in the South West of the UK. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWKeOog2kRA "Rule and Bant" - another self-written song, about two men who were entombed , but eventually rescued after five days, at the Drakewalls Mine in Gunnislake, Cornwall in 1889. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtRPow5iPug
  8. Here's Julie singing I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter, accompanied by my Jeffries duet tina: It's all part of the work in progress for an CD we're recording, so wish us luck! Gavin
  9. Last fall I performed all over the South of England at folk clubs and festivals. My audiences seemed to enjoy this song and join in the chorus. Click below to read a bit about "Wedding Dress" and see a live performance at the Seaford Folk Club, UK, October 19, 2012. http://jodykruskal.com/tune_of_the_month/january_2013.html
