Hello

Thought it was time I registered and posted something here rather than lurking.
I’ve been playing concertina (Anglo) for seven years - taking it up at the age of 40. I don’t play anything else - and haven’t previously apart from some piano lessons at school ( fortunately I remembered most of the music theory ), so it’s taken a while …..
Many thanks to those who have posted help, advice & inspiration to other learners here, it has definitely been of use to me as well

Hello

 

Yes - I should have said - folk music in general, with most interest in English folk music. I'm working on using LH accompaniment to an RH melody

Welcome to the forum.

Which makers Anglo do you play and in what key?

Thanks.

Thanks for the welcome; I have recently got a Jeffries in G/D - I was using ( and still do ) a C/G Lachenal before that.

 

I actually started with a loan Scarlatti for a few months.

Hello Karl,

 

Which side do you play for ? I'm in South Norfolk so know a few of the Suffolk sides.

 

I love the Jeffries growl also, I was fortunate enough to be able to have a good try out of one ..... After which I had to start looking !!

Not too shabby!

I know we have lots of Morris fans here, any chance of a vid?
