  • Minor correction to your list. As a Glasgow lass born n bred n still resident, I doubt Susan McClure (aka the mrs..) would be overly thrilled at being listed as from Dunblane...!

    Andy

  • Thanks Andy ............... sorted! By the way, whats wrong wi Dunblane? ;-)
  • Absolutely nothing wrong with Dunblane, its a lovely place and were looking forward to being there next week for our friends wedding. But it isnt home, thats all..

  • To be honest Andy, the actual towns arent important really, as they are only in there to help show the regional spread of the instrument, throughout Scotland, from the Borders to Shetland.

    Unfortunately we dont have regions for some of the folks on the list, but it is perhaps interesting to note that these little beasties would appear to be a little more commonly used in the East of the country, than the West & that they are perhaps very scarce or in fact maybe almost non existent, in the Highlands & Islands.

    The only other practical use I can see, for the general location of the players to be displayed, is that for anyone who may be perhaps looking for playing tips or even lessons, they may just be able to track down a player in their own area, if they at least have the name of a local player.

    Cheers Dick

  • Im delighted to be able to add TWO new names to our list!

  • Hello there,

    Ill claim number 73.

    In the photo of Simons workshop at the Aberdeen Free Reed Convention (link somewhere on page one of this thread), Im the one sitting in the corner boxed in (!) by non-conertina players.

    I think 74 might be up in the north-west. Ill post here if I can confirm.

    Russ Clare Doune

  • Excellent news Russ. ........... Arise #73! :-) Oh & good luck, in tracking down #74. Cheers, Dick P.S. I have a guilty secret ... I also play an Anglo. e.g. Last week, in my local session pub: <>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbIep29006Q > ********************************************************* English Concertina players in Scotland {73}

  • Heres someone playing the pipe tune Itchy Fingers on one and its great!! http://youtu.be/pmhFBOfnqQ8
  • Sorry Tormod, that is a Concertina alright, but its an Anglo one, { the Sook an Blaw version} not an English Concertina.

    Heres the old Vital Spark theme tune on an English Concertina ~ note the Thumb Straps.

    Cheers, Dick

  • doh!

    Thanks for correcting. He was good at it right?

    Sorry, and I get annoyed when people admire my accordion. (Its a Melodeon*)

    Anyway, its a dark art. Work of the devil.

    * I hope

  • Sorry to take someone out but I think youll find that Oscar St Cyr and another person on your list are one and the same. Clue: 1960s recording by Scotlands all round entertainer. If you still cant crack it, come back and I shall allow the moggy out of the satchel.
  • Sorry Adder but I have always been hopeless at cryptic crossword puzzles. I am keen to keep the details as correct as possible, but if youd rather not name names here, then by all means bung the name over to me, by eMail { avgm50 at dsl.pipex.com } Cheers, Dick
  • I think this is the clue here

    http://www.theballadeers.com/scots/hi_d06_live.htm

    So, it is a sixties player. Ian McIntosh or even Archie, perhaps?

    Interesting to see that Jimmy Whiskers Greenan is on the album too... I never knew he recorded with Hamish.

  • OK. I hope it wont have any repercussions after all this time. I can exclusively reveal that Oscar St Cyr is, in fact THUD. AAAArgh..............
  • So, either for contractual reasons or not wanting to have his name on the same record as WN. Archie used the nom de plume of Oscar St Cyr(us Of The Liver).
  • OK were back to just 79 players in Scotland, today.
