What to say..

Recommended Posts

Hmm....as a Scottish musician, I might surmise that he was an English comedian?

But no...he was indeed English, as discussed on this forum (died 1953, came from Yorkshire) but he was also a skilled concertina player. So the next challenge

is to discover how to play bagpipes that look like a mockery of a concertina?

One of the places where Clevoner played was the Tivoli Theatre in Dublin -- a music hall. in 1921 “Jack Clevenor, described as the ‘wizard of the concertina’ extracted some rare music from concertinas of various sizes, and was greatly appreciated.”

Thanks for posting the photo of him, Peter!
