With all the recent posts about bass concertina, I just now remembered this recording from mumble-something years ago featuring the wonderfully unlikely combination of double-action bass concertina and concert harp:

I like it!  Is that a bass English?  If so, I didn't know (or had forgotten) that you played English in addition to Anglo and Jeffries Duet.

Yes, it's a 35-button stretched hexagon EC in basic black, presumably a Lachenal. EC was my main instrument for many many years so of course I had to get a bass after hearing Bernard Wrigley. But his is single-action and he told me he'd be no help at all on how to play a double-action one! Still, what an awesome sound, you feel the low notes more than you hear them.
