Anglo Concertina Workshop Weekend by John Kirkpatrick MBE

There has been such a demand for this weekend that I’m going to do two next year. If social distancing is still in force, then twelve would be the absolute limit. If things are a bit more relaxed by then, we could cope with a few more but not many really. I’m aiming to do the same thing at both, so it may be best to come to just one!

Provisional dates for 2021:

            9-11 April 2021 (the week after Easter)

            15-17 April 2021

Full details in due course from my website: – click on SQUEEZER WEEKENDS.

In The Church Barn, Bishop’s Castle, South Shropshire.

Chords and Keys on the Anglo – not really suitable for complete beginners.

You’ll need an Anglo with at least 30 buttons.

1st Zoom Committee Meeting

Your committee – sans Paul Walker

The first ICA Committee meeting to be held by Zoom was held on 1 July 2020.

Here we all are, looking our photogenic best.

Paul Walker was unable to attend, but from the top we have:

  • Roger Gawley (Vice Chair/Secretary) – Colin Whyles (Webmaster/Sound Library) – Tracy Tye (plus friend)
  • Gill Noppen-Spacie – Martin Henshaw (Membership) – Peter Rowlstone (Editor Concertina World)
  • Paul McCann (Chair/Treasurer) – Graham Heffernan – Jeremy Hague (Librarian/Archivist)

The meeting was very successful, and much improved for being able to see each other.
