I play an English Concertina, called “The Jackie” tenor concertina. I started to play the Anglo-concertina but I switched systems as I thought it would be more compatible to the Continental melodies I intended to play. I was looking for an instrument that was small and compatible for playing with other instruments.
I play melodies from the Scottish and English Borders, Highland and English melodies, also a mixture of Irish, Scandinavian and Spanish melodies.
Recently (Dec. 2016) I produced my 1st concertina CD using a mandolin to add to the rhythmic texture. The melodies are from the Scottish and English borders as well as northern Spain.
Various concertina demo recordings on the “jackie” can be heard on the links to soundcloud
