No, it doesn't look remotely like him. Anyway, he plays Anglo.

Watcher Celia! Welcome to the forum. Will you, Pete and the Saxons be going to Chippenham next week?

 

I agree with Chas, Lea Nicholson would be my guess.

 

Cheers,

 

Chris

You don't wonder. Because it isn't or it is?

Because it doesn't look like me, I wasn't in London, I didn't have a beard, nor an Æola in 1973, and I've never had black hair. Will that do? :unsure:

Hi everyone,

 

that guy in the picture looks a bit like Noel Hill. Please no offence, Noel Hill, if you read this. ;) The only thing is that Noel Hill doesn't play an English concertina; he plays the Anglo; but saying that, it brings me to think that maybe Noel Hill had a go at the English concertina back then. :o

 

Best Wishes to all,

Patrick :D

I wonder if he is a player or some one trying out an English (perhaps a baritone??) for the first time? His fingers are quite high up the keyboard and he isn't using the attached wrist straps, so might not have been a very experienced player.

 

Looks a bit like Mike Gabriel? (Mike and Jackie Gabriel, from Cheltenham I think, used to sing around the UK folk clubs around that time; some great harmonies as I recall, but can't remember if Mike played concertina....)

 

Then again, it might just be Generic 1970s Folkie number 5345348 :lol:

No he doesn't, certainly not considering when the picture was taken.

 

Below a pic of Hill from the cover of the 'Inchiquin' recording, which was himself, Tony Linnane, Kieran Hanrahan and Tony Callanan. From 1976.

Having watched recently the complete " Life on Mars" series - the british one - and now this, I'm glad I was a child in the seventies and not an adult! :blink: :lol:

I say... his hair didn't look very neat back then, but I guess it's a better hair-do than what ones you see on young yahoos around here in Australia. Anyway, it was probably the fashion, even though I don't care about what's good today or tomorrow or whatever. I just wear whatever suits the weather. ;) :lol:

 

Regards,

Patrick

 

P.S. But I'm not the kind of person who judges people by their looks. I focus on the inside of a person, what their traits are and other things on the inside. It's something all people should practise, but good looks are alright, as long as you don't use them to attract people to you or you don't get plastic surgery done. ;)

Neither do I. But it seems that the fashion in the 70's was a competition for to be as ugly as sin! :lol: Honestly, the first time I saw the video of Steeleye Span 'All around my hat' - by the way, one of my favourite songs -, I almost suffered a heart attack! :blink:

 

And I've not talking about faces, but about horrible hairstyles, clothes, shoes, sideburns,etc... OMFG

 

Cheers,

I have a few fav. songs, Fer. (See my interests in my profile)

 

Well, I have a very poor knowledge of concertina players. There's got to be a hundred or so I don't know about. So, it would probably be impossible for me to come up with the answer. I don't know many English concertina players. :lol:

 

Cheers,

Patrick

A shot in the dark - I vaguely remember a publicity photo for a duo - ?Frank Warren and Dave East? - one of whom played English. Does that ring any bells with anybody?

Too much hair (amongst other things) for Dave East, who always played an Edeophone when I knew him.
