We greatly regret having to announce the death of Michel Van Der Meiren, the ICA webmaster.
Michel died suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack on March 24th 2020.
It was not coronavirus related.
Many ICA members will remember Michel from the Swaledale Squeeze where he was an enthusiastic participant.
A full obituary will appear in the next Concertina World.
No funeral arrangements are known at present. There is a website for condolences:
Here are Michel, Pauline Snoo and Jeremy Hague playing Michel’s arrangements at Pauline’s house some years ago.
