Ssi 2009


Recommended Posts

Oh dear. Do we have to be in tune? :unsure:

Tune in... and find out.

Ah, but you did that, Chas.

So please give us your impression of the weekend. :)

 

As one of the principal organizers, I will post my thoughts in a few days, as well as a link to some photos, but I'd like to encourage others to give their own views first.

 

I will say that SSI 2009 was a success, and next year's Scandinavian Squeeze-In is now scheduled for the weekend of April 23-25, 2010.

Glad you all had a good time.

 

Cheers,

 

Chris

 

PS they're letting me out of hospital today!

 

Edited to add PPS: Yippee, I'm out. 10 days in hospital (even a good one) is long enough!

Thanks, Danny!
:)

To those who fear that interest in the concertina will die out... please note the variety of ages of the participants. :)

So does the baby play the concertina too? ;)

Yes, didn't you spot it in Danny's photo? :rolleyes:

 

It's sitting just above the melodeon that Chas (the fidjit) made at Stowmarket, between a Hohner and a Dipper, right in the middle of this close-up:

I seem to remember (from another thread) that Chris Timson has one just like it... ;)

And in case anybody's wondering what the piece of paper is, sticking out of the bellows of Henrik's self-made English concertina - it's the bus timetable to Kilrush, so I guess he's firmly "nailing his colours to the mast" for August!

Notice, he's done away with the thumb straps altogether now... :blink:

So although it's not really an anglo, neither is it quite a proper English.

What does that make it?

An
anguish?

Only you're not going to let him, are you Chas? ;) :lol:

 

It's a pity I didn't have my camera handy at the time (it was before breakfast!), but here's a picture showing the two of them later in the day, where he does look like he's in a bit of a hurry to get away from his old adversary:

I sent the photo Pontus took to Jim. May he can post them.

Photo to "embarrass" Rickard?
Don't know that I should do that

He's not a Concertina.net member.

A lovely group photo but 'who is who'? I recognise Jim, Danny, Stephen, but no one else. Can we have an identification caption naming names, please, i.e. ' in the picture, from left to right we have........'. Also, another one identifying the concertinas would be cool too.
