"royal Concertinas"

Recommended Posts

;) Well Pete,


I'd give it a shot, but with my geographical disability, I'd never make it. (No, I am not geographically challenged, then there would be some hope, disabled it is.)




I've died and gone to heaven. You said something nice about piano accordions.

Just be aware, anyone not approaching from the North West (or other geopgraphically challenged people), there is football at Hillsborough tonight, so don't go that way.

I am going Hoyland, Stocksbridge By-Pass route from Doncaster.

11 people, free sandwiches from the Landlady, Good mix of Anglos, and English, good range of tunes, Morris, Irish, fun tunes. Two baritones: one Anglo, one English. Fair skill range, covering ears only to dots only, no upsets. Youngest player 17 yrs oldest, well say several over the 1/2 century.


Mark has noted the tunes played.


Forbidden topics:


Glues (Sorry Dave P)


Button sizes (but a Swedish Theme night was suggested by one player not to be named)


Music stands not mentioned, so bed time, Others can give the rest of the details

1. True Yorkshireman always has an empty glass on show to attract a free re-fill


2. True Yorkshireman keeps his full glass hidden unless someone else pinches his beer


As an aside, did you notice both the instruments in the picture are Anglos, the English players were far more......er.....well.....'genteel'
