Tom Hall Posted June 8, 2008 Share Posted June 8, 2008 This year's festival will be happening on 27 and 28 September in Portsmouth New Hampshire. While we've always had concertina players in the ranks of performers, this will be a banner year for our favorite instrument in that fourteen of the scheduled singers are also concertina players, amounting to what John Roberts once called "...an embarassment of concertinas." In addition to the usual run of Wheatstone, Lachenal and Jeffries ECs and Anglos, there will be some more uncommon boxes to include a Dipper baritone, a Dipper McCann duet, and a Crane duet, maybe a Morse or two as well. Late September is the nicest time of year in New Hampshire; foliage is starting, room rates are down, lobster is less dear. Portsmouth is only an hour north of Boston, and the festival is free!
