Yes, Chris, it really does work in Am. If you are at Whitby next week, I will demonstrate it for you. You are right in saying that you need an F natural, but most D/G boxes have one. I also use F natural basses at one point in the B music, which 8-bass boxes won't have, but D basses can be substituted for the Fs.

See you in Whitby  (:)

Played on my Geipel in C minor

It's the TUne of the Month over at concertina.net.  I have always known it as The Wren, and learned it as an AMerican contra dance tune. Wonderful playing, by the way.

I think Pikey is playing a version of the Americanized " The Wren" as none of the Breton recordings I've heard have that b part.  Not sure how we morphed it, but its become standardized here and given that name. As I don't speak French or Breton, I'm not sure if there is any association to December 26th, St. Stephen, or the hunting of the Wren in the original An Dro, but I just heard it elsewhere this morning as part of a set of Wren hunting tunes.
