Bob Michel Posted November 20, 2014 Share Posted November 20, 2014 Hello to all, Having browsed this forum pretty much since it started, I've decided to stop procrastinating and sign on. So this is by way of belated introduction. I've been playing music of one kind or another since the '60s, and Anglo concertina since around 1997. After a brief apprenticeship on a Stagi G/D, I lucked into a lovely old (c. 1890) Lachenal 40 button in C/G, and later added a 1953 Wheatstone, also with 40 buttons, which the Button Box did a great job of hot-rodding with a new riveted action. I still play both of these (you can hear them on my brand new YouTube channel). For a time I also owned one of the late Harold Herrington's wonderful concertinas, which I sold to a friend some years back. On concertina I play mainly ITM, though I do play some other styles as well as some other instruments. I give lessons on several of these in the Philadelphia area, if anyone stateside is interested. Anyway, having profited so long from the expertise and lore shared on this site, I figure it's time to step out of the shadows, if only to say thanks!
