On the other hand I'm pretty sure that mornington crescent NEVER showed up on french TV.

 

did it ever show up on British TV? I only know it on radio (and concertina.net!!)

Good question...but, it appears to be an Egyptian-stylized cat playng a bandoneon.

You have my deepest sympathy. Perhaps, one day ...

Mine is of me holding my grandson.

 

With hardly a squeeze, he is capable of hitting higher notes than I could ever hope to hit on my concertina, and he is much more musical than I can ever hope to be.

 

The picture is from his baptism, the little guy turns 2 tomorrow.

I have been waiting for just the right avatar before picking one that would represent me well. I recently found a named variety of bearded-iris called "concertina." Fits right in with my hobby of gardening well. Looks like I will need to add this variety to my garden. :)

 

I am 1/3 of the way paying for my new and first box. I can't wait. Hopefully I can begin playing by Christmas.

It seemed to me, to be the perfect image for an Avatar on a Concertina forum.

 

i.e. Two Concertina enthusiasts having a musical discussion! :lol:

 

Judging by the button patterns though, I'd say they're probably playing Duets! B)

Musical discussion? Nah, they are simply pressing each others' buttons! It's obvious. ;)

Bandoneon:

 

"Siamese twins connected at the bandoneon (a free-reed instrument similar to the accordion and concertina). The faces are modeled after Astor Piazzolla, the Argentine tango composer and bandoneon player."
