Looking forward to seeing some of my concertina.net friends and maybe meeting some new ones. Lets share a tune or two. See you in a few days

I, too, look forward to the Squeeze-In. In fact, from the time we leave after lunch on Sunday, I look forward to it for a year!

 

See you tomorrow.

Yay Ken.

 

I'm leaving tonight after Morris practice. The annual gathering of the tribe.

I’ll be there by dinner time Friday. I’m an hour away in Albany, so the timing depends on when I can get out of work.

Thinking of you all, kind of wish I were there too! Haven't been to NESI in a few years at least. Maybe the next one... Nice weather I think, this time. I am near Worcester MA but I think it's about the same weather today.

I'm in the Button Box "shop" here at NESI and Jody is honking away on one of the stock baritones. There are a _load_ of concertinas in stock. Always an evil temptation to show up here, dangerous for one's checkbook.

 

By the time Jim Besser's hornpipe session really got rolling this morning about 20 folks were in the room (only one accordion).

Well, it's done, and a great time was had by all, as far as I could tell. High point for me was reconnecting with an accordion player from near Zurich, Switzerland who I met a few years ago when Julie and I went to a contradance that he and his wife run. It was I who encouraged him to come to NESI, and now, here he was. We had an hour or so to play together after breakfast this morning and taught each other a lot of great tunes.

 

I also want to thank everyone responsible for allowing me to get through the whole weekend without once hearing Josefin's Waltz.

After some crazy traffic coming back onto Staten Island Diana and I are home. What a great weekend of music, old and new friends.

I couldn't agree more with the consensus on the Squeeze-In. My only problem now: What the heck to I do with a Chemnitzer??!! Ah, the impulse to buy free reeds....

HA. You missed Josefin's; you must have been in a different room. I tried to stop it, but failed.

 

It was a great weekend. Lots of concertinas, lots of great players. Our Swiss friend was my roommate, and he was a delight.

Such a wonderful time. I am still smiling. Don’t know if it is traditional but my new Concertina has been named ‘Sadie’. Can’t thank you enough Doug for all your encouragement

It was fantastic. Just working on some of the myriad new NESI learned tunes in my stash. What a joyful time.

I feel so fortunate.

It's always a high point of my year. Nice hanging out with you, Sarah - and with all the others. A great group of people.
