Dan Worrall Posted February 6, 2009 Author Share Posted February 6, 2009 (edited) Hi Dan I've just been talking to John Newman of Grenoside Sword team. He says they never had a concertina player but there is a picture of a flutina player. Still no luck with scanning, my machine is wrecked, and digital photos are too small and blurred in close up. I'll keep trying Yours Mike Hi Mike, I'm in the edit phase of the Anglo-in-England piece now...the English Anglo had a great history and the telling of it has grown into a book...I decided to also include a rewrite/update of the 'Anglo-in-Ireland' and 'Concertina-at-Sea' articles in it too (nearly two thirds of the 'at Sea' sightings were on British ships, and I bet nearly all the ships I quote had an Irish sailor or two on board, so it seems fitting to include it), so it will be a doorstop. Last count, I had well over 250 illustrations and hundreds of first-hand accounts going back well into the 1840s. But your photo sounds great....I wants it.....any luck with the scanner? Got a friend, or a library with one? Many thanks. I'm hoping to get the thing reviewed, edited, formatted and out the door by early summer. Then I'll start on vol.II...Australia, NZ, S Africa, Africa, US and, with some help, the revival itself, which is now well into its 4th decade. By the way, I'm STILL looking for some more good photos of Irish concertina players pre-1930.....They are scarce as hen's teeth. Any any ideas out there? Big Roly, A) cool moniker B ) why was Frank West a villain? Is this an inside joke? Or am I just a dunce not to know more about him?
