concertina band

Recommended Posts

I have read a lot about concertina bands and have seen a lot of historic pictures of them. But I don´t have any idea how these bands might have sounded. Does anybody know a good recording?

Hi dussek


I'm not sure of any older recordings or sounds, but there are a few modern samples. I can't imagine them being much different, other than better quality of the audio.

There are a couple on the 'English International! A history of the English concertina' CD


It features

The Ashton Under Lyne Concertina band World Champions and the Heywood Concertina Band Runners up.

Two fantastic recordings from about 1935
