I thoroughly enjoyed the CD and it gives me a bench mark to aim for with my playing too.

I'd add to some of these comments - the CD alone, which I much enjoyed, would justify the membership fee for me. As Hereward says, it provides much food for thought in terms of developing one's own playing (whatever type of music you favour). Concertina World is also invariably a good read, from which I have learnt much.

 

Keep up the good work Pauline & Co.

Yup always enjoy the magazine. Lots of interesting concertina related stuff in it. The cd's pretty good too. Not my kind of music but certainly makes you think about the potential of the instrument. keep up the good work! (and could we have a cd of Irish tunes played on the Anglo next please? :-) )

Thank you JimmyM.

Indeed I am looking into options for other styles of music as well. One cd a year with the magazine would be great. And each year a different style of music. Need the help of good players to make it work. .........

Small group part-playing, rather than larger concertina bands, would seem a good idea to me. I am thinking of music such as Dave Townsend's village band books, or Spare Parts (Valmai Goodyear & Brian Creer) in Lewes.

So many people, so many wishes.

 

I think the ICA should aim to publish music that is not normally easily avaible on cd or in any other form of audio.

Small group part playing pdfs of arrangements have been in the music supplement before. Both by Dave Townsend and Brian Creer/Valmai Goodyear. Have not heard/seen any recordings of these arrangements sofar. Except maybe something on YouTube of a workshop.
