London Concert Reminder Feb 17Th

Recommended Posts

There was not sufficient applicants for a workshop so I I am going to offer a concert that should be interesting to concertinsts of all persuasions. Mark your calendars


Bertram Levy is one of the foremost performers, innovators, and teachers of the Anglo concertina. His first tutor, “The Anglo Concertina Demystified,” published in 1984, continues to be sold worldwide and is considered “without peer, the definitive instruction manual for the instrument.... .” As a performer, he has appeared on film soundtracks, National Public Radio, and numerous recordings. His 1986 record, “First Generation,” was selected for a Grammy nomination. Levy is also a major force in the revival of Southern fiddle music. His landmark 1967 recording with the Hollow Rock String Band is included in the Smithsonian collection entitled “American Folk Music.” His present tutor, “American Fiddle Styles for the Anglo Concertina,” reflects the author’s long experience with Southern fiddle music and his deep understanding of the Anglo concertina. In addition it reflects a new vision for playing the instrument derived from years of intensive study of the bandoneon in Buenos Aires, Argentina.


The concert on February 17 th at the London Irish Center is a rare opportunity to hear the extraordinary repertoire of Bertram Levy in the UK and should be of interest to all concertinists. The concert begins at 8:00PM. Reservations can be made at bertramlevymusic@gmail.com. Admission is 15 pounds.
