Earlier today, out West

I like to think get to see a fair few nice concertina players and very much so during the past few weeks.  Normally I wouldn't bore you with that but today Chris Droney, in his 94th year, his daughter Ann Kirrane, son Francis and daughter in law Aine McGrath did a spot at lunchtime. And the unstoppable Chris Droney deserves a mention.  Some snaps :

Great photos of such a brilliant player and his family. Out on his own before the concertina became what it is today. His powerful and unadorned style is a foundation of concertina playing at its best.

For anyone into that sort of thing: the whole lunchtime recital mentioned above has been put on youtube (not by me). Slightly shaky mobile phone footage but ten tracks or so in all.
