All,

 

These are complex arrangements, multi-part in PDF, with MP3 to listen. This looks very promising.

I would ask that someone record one of these tunes, and post for us to hear it - on a concertina

 

Regards

What I see to listen to aren't MP3, but MIDI, and not even using an "accordion" sound.

 

And I'm curious why the parts are labeled as being for accordions, yet show only a single line for each instrument. No use of 2 or more fingers at a time, and no use of the left hand.

 

Maybe somebody will print out the parts to one or more of those arrangements and try them in a concertina band workshop at NESI?

Carolyn Wade of the Yorkshire Concertina Band has explored this resource, and used many of the arrangements both at the Concertina Band Day at Mexborough, and at the Swaledale weekend.

Since most of the parts are single line, they transfer easily to concertina.

The bass is the left hand.

1st and second accordions can be treated as "2 or more fingers at a time".

I'll try to put it back together.

I am a little puzzled why "single line melody" fits better for concertina. I'd think it fits better for clarinet or fluite.
