Pete Dickey Posted December 5, 2003 Share Posted December 5, 2003 Dave Prebble and I recently spent an unforgettable day in the company of Geoff Crabb. We were made very welcome by Geoff and his good lady. Geoff kindly spent several hours sharing some of his tremendous knowledge of concertinas with us. His enthusiasm and ability in the construction of these superb instruments is amazing and we left exceptionally grateful yet humbled by the experience. Geoff also proudly showed us a part of his latest project which, when complete, will be the world’s largest concertina which he is assembling in a marquee in his back garden. The photo shows Geoff with one of the reeds which he has just finished voicing. Using an angle grinder saved several weeks of filing and he says the reed is so powerful that when he pinged it, the shockwave blew his glasses off.
