LoM Posted March 27, 2015 Share Posted March 27, 2015 Hello again everyone Been playing the concertina for just over 2 months now and I must say I'm really enjoying it! It's quite challenging, but in a fun and happily maddening kind of way. With that being said, it baffles me that there's only one style of music I like to hear on it. Irish Traditional. Now, given I didn't discover this lovely reeded box until I was 19, maybe 20 years old, it's no wonder I don't know many of the musics played on it. But what else I've heard, I've strongly disliked. So if I may ask of you, what's one of your absolute favorite videos or recordings of concertina? All styles and genres welcome, preferably solo or lightly accompanied though. Something that really brings out its character. Something that epitomizes what you love about it. Here are 3 of mine...
