Another Video Game Concertina Sighting

Recommended Posts

After Sea of Thieves, the concertina makes another appearance in a video game. This time in a cowboy simulator (set in 1890s), called Red Dead Redemption 2. Does anybody recognize the song?

Interesting. Sounds like a real concertina playing, but no attempt to get the bellows movement or finger action believable.

 

Did you know you can make the video appear in this window simply by typing its URL? See...

Thanks for the tip, I edited the original post now.

 

As for believability, he sometimes makes rapid changes of the bellows, which makes me think that it's an anglo. However, further details were probably left out since nobody expected the players to go into so much detail :D

Hey Tim, thanks for spotting this! I don't recognize the tune as being from any particular cowboy song, so it's probably something the musical director composed. Like "Sea of Thieves" where Robin Beanland wrote all the music. Now Assassin's Creed, on the other hand, wonderfully included lots of traditional sea shanties.
