The Portsmouth Maritime Folk Festival will be taking place on the weekend of 29-30 September and we're going to have a pretty good collection of concertina players on board. (http://www.newenglandfolknetwork.org/pmff/)

 

Thus far, we have Bob Webb, Dipper MacCann Duet, Emery Hutchins, Anglo, to include a Dipper baritone, myself, Jeff Warner, Ken Sweeny, Joanne Souza on English, and maybe a couple other Anglo players.

 

We are currently conspiring to present a demonstration/performance of "Massed Concertinas." If Highland games can do this with pipers, why not Maritime Fests with concertinas?

 

Keep checking the website for forthcoming details - Tom

This is the festival I wrote up back in 2003. Alas, work is likely to keep me away (still stuck in Pennsylvania, that silly business called "having a job"), so say Hi for me, Tom!

 

Looks like the website for the parent organization, http://www.folkhorizons.org/, still has last year's details up...so try Tom's link.
