  • Is there an Echo in here?
  • Hello Janetta, thanks for your interest.

    However, Petes actually been on the list since ~ 28 Dec 2008, but nae tother a ba! Id far rather be told 2 or 3 times about someone, than not at all! :-)

    I dabbled with the concertina myself and might have gone in that direction, but I fell in love with hammered dulcimer instead.

    You crazy fool! :-)

    No doubt you are familiar with my European Dulcimer Forum?:

  • Many thanks to Wes Williams over on C.net, for giving me another name for our list.

    Namely the late Alf Edwards

    <>http://www.concertina.com/merris/bibliography/images/E24-W594H817.jpg >

    Edwards, who died in 1985, played concertina in the 1956 movie version of Moby Dick.

    Theres lots more info on Alf here:

    <>http://www.answers.com/topic/alf-edwards >

    Cheers Dick

  • N.B. I have just been reliably informed that Alf Edwards WASNT a Scotsman, after all! :-(

    Ah well, sounds like he was a fascinating character, one of those one of a kind individuals, you dont meet every day. The sort that folk say there are far fewer of around, today.

    The bottom line is, I dont really mind how long my list is ...... as long as it is ACCURATE, so many thanks to Stephen Chambers for the info!

    Cheers Dick

  • I was lucky enough to bump into Jack Beck this week, here in the Glens of Antrim.

    <>http://www.scottishsongandstory.co.uk/ >

    I met Jack first back in 1973, but I hadnt seen him since 1983, so we had a wee bit of catching up to do.

    Anyway, he was telling me that he acquired an old Wheatstone from a musician in Fife, some years ago, but he finally got round to having it fully restored fairly recently, so now hes working away on it & learning how to play it, so that he can accompany the odd song or two.

    So one more Scottish exiled English Concertina player for our list! :-)

    Cheers Dick

  • And finally...... ;-)

  • Who did you add Dick?
  • Has anybody mentioned Peter Leatham? He would be another name for your not to be forgotten section He played concertina and melodeon and was the father of accordion champ and teacher Chrissie Leatham.
  • Elizabeth thanks, I am of course delighted to be able to add Peter Leathams name to the list.

  • Ptarmigan,

    Do you mean Duncan McLennan from Inverness who was a founder of the Inverness Folk Club and heavily involved in organising same along with The Inverness Folk Festival for many years?

    I havent seen him for a few years but hes still living up there as far as I know.

  • Im sure you are correct JAJ. At the moment, I forget where that information from. ******* Latest Update!

    It was my sad duty to move the name of late & much missed Jim Reid, to the Not to be forgotten section of this list.
