chiton1 Posted December 7, 2009 Author Share Posted December 7, 2009 (edited) so, please... let's not spend any more time in this thread talking about IF you can play the EC in irish music, but rather WHO does. it is a worthwhile discussion, for sure, but i think it should be in another thread. Well David I agree with you, this should be a topic for listing those who are playing Irish music on EC. But probably I am to blame for it as well as I added this: 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). And discussions regarding if EC can produce some convincing Irish music etc. should better be addressed in another topic. Now I will put three new videos on youtube tonight and would very much like comments on those (especially by Anglo players) and perhaps start a discussion from there. I didn't include Mick & Rick (doesn't that sound lovely?) as I only heard them playing harmonica and song accompaniment, but perhaps they do play Irish dance music and airs on EC?.... I do not know if it is statistically significant but most European EC players seem to be dislocated from their land of origin! That is why I have put their origin/descent between square brackets. Of course Americans and Australians are already dislocated (unless they are from true native origin ). To the list I have added a few myself and will add more (there at least two others in France). English System Concertina Players Who Play Irish Music Marc (Australia) Dirk de Bleser (Belgium) Hermann Strack (France) - [German/French/Uruguayan] Geoff Wooff (France) - [English] Fernando Durbán Galnares (Ireland) - [spanish] Dick Miles (Ireland) - [English] Henrik Müller (Sweden) - [Danish] Dick Abrams (USA) Matt Heumann (USA) Larry Stout (USA) Edited December 7, 2009 by chiton1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
