Cambridge, England in October 2018

Recommended Posts

I am going to be in Cambridge, England for about two weeks this fall, approximately October 8-21.  While I'll be based in Cambridge, I'll certainly make trips to London.

Would anyone recommend live music venues that would include concertinas or sessions or maybe even concertina shops in the area worth visiting?  I bought a Jackie EC from Concertina Connection at Christmas and have practiced almost every day since using Paul Hardy tune books or playing by ear.  Have really enjoyed it and dream of one day adding buying a vintage concertina.

Any information especially from someone who lives in the area would be appreciated.

Well, as the eponymous Paul Hardy of the tunebooks, I live about 6 miles from Cambridge! Unfortunately, I'm away in Italy and then at the WCCP concertina event in Somerset for much of the time you indicate, but I'd be happy to meet up one day or evening from the 16th  on.

  • There will be a Greenshoots session (http://greenshootsmusic.org.uk/) on 15 October at Melbourn which uses my tunebook tunes. I should be there assuming I get back from Somerset in time.
  • Chiltinas (http://chiltinas.org.uk/) meets on Sunday 21st.

Drop me an email (paul at paulhardy.net), and I'll let you know of any others nearer the time.
