Bob Michel Posted December 7, 2016 Share Posted December 7, 2016 Or, well, as new as an instrument can be after 100+ years, anyway. Brand new to me, certainly. What with the completion (for now, at least) of my WWI song project and the lack of a periodic prod from TOTM, I haven't put anything on YouTube for a while that features concertina prominently. But a friend asked if I'd post a video of the Jeffries I've long coveted but just finally acquired (in lieu of a red sports car, as one might say). So here it is. https://youtu.be/cg5wBQ6UuXw "Con Cassidy's"--one of at least two completely different jigs that go by that name--is a much-recorded standard. "Parnell's March" isn't as commonly heard at sessions hereabouts as I'd like it to be; it's a tune I've loved for a long time. I probably first learned it from the playing of Father Charlie Coen, but it's been ages since I heard his version, and I suspect mine has wandered a bit from that setting.
