Are There Any Concertina Players In Lincolnshire, Uk?

Recommended Posts

I used to go to Chiltinas (in Bedfordshire) once a month for a lovely afternoon playing music (from the dots) with other concertina players.

 

Last year I moved to Louth in Lincolnshire and so far I haven't found a similar group. I would very much like to set one up (if there is not already something running) so wondered if there were any players who may be interested in meeting up once a month.

I suggest you contact the organisers of the Squeezeast event:

Their annual event is held in Stamford and there may well be some locals involved.

 

Good luck

Thanks John. I have been to Squeeze East a few times - it's a great event. Last year I asked if there was anyone from the Lincolnshire area, but there wasn't. I think people come from far and wide to attend Squeeze East.

I live in Long Bennington between Grantham and Newark. I play Anglo. There is a Midlands Concertina Group that meets twice a year in Nottingham. Next meeting late March.

If you are not already a member of the International Concertina Association, I would recommend joining. See www.concertina.org

 

Whther you join or not, I would suggest sending your question to the newsletter editor, Pauline De Snoo, to include in a future issue.

Pauline can be found in the members of these forums. Alternatively, send an email to newsletter@concertina.org

The YORKSHIRE CONCERTINA CLUB meet on the third Sunday of the month in Leeds.

 

See here : – http://www.yorkshire-concertina-club.org.uk

 

The location is MOORTOWN in north Leeds so may be too, too, far for you. ( 100m?? )

It's a daytime session, 12:00 – 17:00.

 

I just throw it in for your consideration.

 

Do I go?? No, I'm in Beverley, East Yorks and I've never been even though it's only about 55m.

 

If there is no response from Lincolnshire players here you could try an appeal on Mudcat Cafe here : –

Many thanks John. Yes, I am a member of the ICA so I will send a request to Pauline to include in a future issue.

 

I do go along to a local weekly pub session, but they all play by ear and I need the dots! I take my ipad so can join in with them. I would really like to be playing with other concertina players though.
