chiton1 Posted December 6, 2009 Share Posted December 6, 2009 (edited) After so many discussions if Irish music CAN be played on English Concertina, I would be interested to know who are predomintly playing Irish music (ITM or however you call it) on their EC? And I think it would also be interesting to know how many people use their EC to play Irish music. Sometimes I have the impression that Anglo players regard us a rare breed of queer people on a useless and futile quest (why not play Anglo is a question I have often been asked by Anglo players). Of course I came across a few Irish playing ECs in Concertina.net, but there are probably more I do not know of. I would also be curious to know were these people are based, as probably most of them live outside Ireland. So I have three easy questions: 1) do you play predominantly (lets say at least half of your repertoire) Irish Music on your EC? (if so, please give your name) 2) in which country do you live? 3) do you know of others who would fit this category? This will result in a list like the one Dick made for Scottish EC players. I will sign in first - hope others will follow.
