Alan Day Posted July 10, 2007 Share Posted July 10, 2007 A few years ago I rejoined the International Concertina Association.I had been a member many years before and met up with some legendary concertina players including Tommy Williams.My impressions then was that it was more a localised club and not really International as the name implied. I thought recently that it was moving in the right direction, becoming much more of interest to those who were not in easy reach of London and more representative of the Concertina Community as a whole and I rejoined. In this mornings post I received an excellent newsletter and a music supplement.Interesting and entertaining. The archives for both written and sound are becoming more of interest , almost daily, with many recognising the importance of the archive information and are sending in donations to increase this section of the organisation. Much of the old playing is on tapes that are disintegrating daily and it will be too late to save them if left much longer. Please do something about them. With a new Web site,links with America and a foreward thinking committee, the ICA are getting to become the really important organisation they should be in the Concertina World.They still have a way to go, but at least they are pointing in the right direction.
