LoM Posted November 18, 2014 Share Posted November 18, 2014 So far, Irish Traditional music is the only music I'm interested in learning on the Concertina. I'm currently saving up money for my first concertina, so before I actually get started, I'm taking this time to explore other styles of music. For the last few years, my life has revolved around Irish music, so I feel that this time is a better time than ever to learn about other cultures and musics. I've listened to some English concertina and I'm not really liking it(which isn't much of a shocker given I'm not much of a fan of classical music). One of my coworkers mentioned "Russian" and "Gypsy" music, but those terms are so open-ended I didn't really know where to start. I found this video on YouTube to give an idea of what I think sounds good, but I don't know what style of music this would be called... http://youtu.be/-3yDhmpcxEU ...Here's more examples of the kind of energy and feel I'm looking for. http://youtu.be/ZWuNf4gxwuM http://youtu.be/Azfre_VfryE I guess this would be called Medieval or Middle Ages inspired, but I'm not sure, I just know I like his(Jeremy Soule's) soundtracks. So what kind of concertina music do you like to play/listen to? I don't mind if it's solo or for ensembles. Please share Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
