What time? The Eastern North America one is at Noon EST/5PM GMT. Both endeavors predict more than 20 participants (each). If they average 3 minutes/segment that’s over an hour for each (and we haven’t heard from the west coast contingent).

 

Edited to add: BTW, Jody’s “autoharp friend” is Cindy Harris.

Thanks for Cindy's name, David.

 

The WCD concert is a pre-recorded video in two parts. As the players are all over the world, this was necessary. It will be made available on 6 February and will then be available forever, so you don't need to worry about clashes.

 

But I will reveal that it is fantastic! All systems are covered in many styles.

I hope it is okay if I also plug my own personal concert for the day.

In addition to the Eastern North American Online Concertina Concert we've put together, I was working with some bandmates on a project to video our performances.  I decided to expand the project to include additional selections of jazz, classical, traditional, and popular standards which I arranged for solo EC. 

Here are a few screenshots. Looking forward to the whole day of music from around the world.
