Hello. I've finished building my Clover Kit! Though it took much time, I've enjoyed it very much and learned many things about concertinas.


My wife plays a jig on this concertina.

Hello. I began building a Clover Anglo Kit! I guess it will take more than a year for me to finish it... ;-)
Part 1  Part 2

I've enjoyed building it so far.

P. S. Here's a photo of Shirley's Maccann Duet.

Comment by Dick Glasgow on July 20, 2012 at 0:39

Singer Shirley & her partner - Fiddler Steve from Dorset, arrived at our Portrush session last night, with her 61k Maccann Lachenal Duet Concertina!

Don't you just love the Summer months ~ you just never know who is going to waltz in the door or what strange weapon they might have, under their arm. ;-)

"Lots of lovely Concertina gigs coming up at ~ Tunes in the Church!

Comment by Dick Glasgow on March 26, 2012 at 21:21

This is a photo of ... Albert Canacott & family

In June, 1899, he bought a Jeffries Concertina from Charles Jeffries & I actually have that Concertina now, in it's original pitch & condition.

N.B I still have the original receipt!

His Grandson, Steve, whose Dad can be seen in this photo, sitting on Albert's Knee, recently sent me this photo out of the blue, after he stumbled on my thread on this Concertina, over on .... small World! ;-)
