Playing Irish Music on an English Concertina.


Recommended Posts

Ken Sweeney (northeast US) also does amazing irish music on EC. Another person who IMO was doing very well at it was Ed Delaney (Indiana, US) but I hear he is playing Anglo lately.

 

Many great examples.

Here's "Crabs in the Skillet" from Horslips' wonderful, quirky album "Drive the Cold Winter Away" (1975).  The unaccompanied english at the beginning doesn't have the punch of an anglo (or of Monty Chiton above), but it remains a nice part of the arrangement when the other instruments kick in and buttress it. That album also makes good use of the english on a couple of imaginative O'Carolan arrangements.
