  • Too many melodeons...
Cohen Braithwaite-Kilcoyne
« on: April 14, 2019, 05:19:45 PM »

In case anyone hasn't seen this, here is Cohen's final recital for his music degree at Leeds:

Magic melodeon at the start and about 29 minutes in, otherwise simply stunning playing you wouldn't believe is possible on an Anglo concertina...

If you get the chance to see him at a folk club, you should jump at it -- he's brilliant live :-)

I saw this from your post on fb.
I think this is just stunning playing.
With the next generation coming through playing like this..... it bodes well!

I think I'm starting to get most of the notes in roughly the right order...... sometimes!

….and it reminded me of the hey day of concertina playing, before it became 'just a folk instrument' - of the concertina bands, the virtuoso players that frequented the music halls. They played anything and everything including classical pieces. I kept reflecting on that whilst watching him.
Remember the old boys when the finale happens!
