A New Guy


Recommended Posts

Having heard Jackie Daly (with Patrick Street) recently I fell wildly in love with the concertina. I am well-versed in trad as I play whistles high and low, but would like to receive any advice you could offer a pre-beginner on where and what to buy, and how to learn.


Many thanks...
