Salvation Army Concertina Bands

Recommended Posts

Hi Don

 

I don't know of any original, but that probably means someone will immediately contradict me,which is good news for you. However several years back Plymouth Congress SA Concertina Band (about a dozen players) produced a centenary celebration audio tape. Someone there may have a copy. Search Plymouth Congress Hall Salvation Army. It gives an address, but I could find no email. Failing that, I may be able to get a copy of my tape if I can find a duplicating facility.

 

Other now defunct band were at the following, and may yield some information for you.

 

Doncaster Citadel Salvation Army. Postal address but no email.

 

Salvation Army Dumfries. email terri.holdroyd@salvationarmy.org.uk

 

Bristol Citadel Salvation Army. email bristolcitadel@salvationarmy.org.uk

 

Hope this information may yield some success for you.

I believe in the 1990's, Mildred Stringer of the Doncaster citadel, was interviewed by the International Concertina Association as an early contribution to a sound archive. The recording included some playing as well as talk.

 

Perhaps current ICA committee members could say what became of it?

Hi John,

 

My understanding is that the sound archive is with Chairman Jon McNamara. - only Jon would know whether this recording is amongst the others he has.

 

I'll drop him an email.

Jeremy:

 

If Jon McNamara does have some sound archives then would you please ask him if they can be released for public access on the Internet.

 

Thx. Don
