Dipper Concertinas Website


Recommended Posts

Seasons greetings to one and all.

 

I am in the process of making a website, and am hoping to do a page showing people who play our concertinas.

 

If you play a Dipper concertina, we would be delighted and very grateful if you could send us a photo of you playing it, and also a short paragraph about you and your music.

 

Wishing everyone a superb 2016 - I'd better get back to reed making - there might even be a whole hour off for lunch on Friday if the boss allows :)

I don't have a Dipper, but I have two friends -- one in Sweden and one in Poland -- who do play Dipper anglos. I'll contact them both and see if I can get something for you.

Tho' one of my concertinas is a Jeffries, I can proudly and gladly say that it plays so well, sounds great, and functions beautifully thanks to an extensive overhaul that Colin performed on it about 25 years ago, including new bellows. It's a joy to play and really easy to to get good music from. Would that instrument count as a Dipper" or is it merely "restored by..."?

Hi, John.


My wife, Satomi plays a Dipper concertina (THE Co CLARE.) It's very quick and light. It has brass buttons and brown bellows. We appreciate your craftsmanship and great work. Your reeds are excellent!



I sent you a message and a photo of her playing it. We're looking forward to seeing your new website!

A fair question. I have one like that too.

Here's a photo of me playing my 31-key Cotswold model in G/D (taken by the lovely and talented Elly Lucas as part of a band publicity shoot). .

 

You can hear me playing it here:

Here are links to a few more pictures, which for some strange reason all seem to be in pubs:

I play mainly English music and occasionally song accompaniment. I play in the English ceilidh band Albireo www.albireo.co.uk. My other concertina is a 40-key C/G Crabb and I also play melodeon, hammered dulcimer, recorder and guitar.
