Sad news

Recommended Posts

I have some sad news to pass on. Ian Munro, passed away yesterday. Ian was a top player of the Anglo concertina. He had been in poor health for several years. Latterly, he was in a nursing home, unable to walk, though still of sound mind. I first met Ian in the late 1980's at Halsway Manor, Somerset, where the WCCP were running their annual Spring weekend. As he lived in Kilmarnock, I often kept in touch with him on my trips to visit family near Glasgow. A good friend lost.

Sorry to hear this.  I met Ian in the early 1990s when I lived in Edinburgh - I went to visit him several times in Kilmarnock to play and chat concertina.  I recall Ian excelled at playing the Anglo.  A sad loss to the concertina world.
