Alan Lochhead - Summer Symphony book for Anglo

Recommended Posts

Good news for all of you who have struggled with Alan Lochhead's book All-American Concertina Album - Rollston Press has been licensed by Mel Bay Publications to update and reissue all of Alan's arrangements in a new 76-page book titled Summer Symphony, available now on Amazon worldwide in paperback and "print-replica" Kindle.

 

Marches, rags, novelty tunes - just the sort of music you would hear in an old-timey bandstand in the park over the past 100 years.

 

All 12 of the original tunes, plus "Dill Pickles" and a new 40-button accompaniment to "At a Georgia Camp Meeting", and all in real pitch with double treble clef, and with button numbers and bellows direction tablature for Anglo like all the other Rollston Press books. And yes they are really difficult to play on the Anglo concertina - definitely not easy arrangements!

 

I had the good fortune to meet Alan at the West Coast concertina meeting last December organized by Daniel Hersh and David Brown, and this update is with his full blessing and encouragement.

 

Since there are no recordings online of Alan playing these arrangements, we've included QR code links for every tune to SoundCloud audio files exported directly from the notated music.

 

Attached is an excerpt for all you Monty Python fans out there (and yes, the tune is really a march by the American bandleader John Philip Sousa).
