The Anglo Concertina Music of John Kirkpatrick - Gary Coover

"England’s John Kirkpatrick is without a doubt the most influential harmonic-style Anglo concertina player of the last several decades.

From the beginning of the Folk Revival in the late 1960’s up until the present day, his rambunctious and boisterous playing, as well as his delicate and thoughtful song accompaniments have been featured on hundreds of recordings.

Here are over 70 tunes and songs as played by John, all carefully transcribed in the original keys to be playable on a 30-button C/G Anglo concertina.

In addition to a wealth of traditional tunes and songs, many of John’s original compositions are included as well as his three-part series “How to Play the Anglo” first printed in 1972." -- Rollston Press 144 pages.

The Jeffries Duet Concertina Tutor - Gary Coover

"The Jeffries Duet is an exceedingly rare type of concertina, with a keyboard many find to be “logic-defying” and “indecipherable”. But no more! This tutor will show you how to make sense of your Jeffries Duet and quickly be able to play a wonderful variety of tunes with full accompaniments. Invented in the late 1890’s by English concertina maker Charles Jeffries, the Jeffries Duet is the ideal “portable pub piano” for playing and accompanying folk, classical, music hall, Gilded-Age, Tin Pan Alley, church hymns and old popular songs from days gone by. This tutor includes over 60 tunes along with a unique tablature system showing both standard music notation along with note pitches in abc notation. Every tune also has a Button Map showing exactly which buttons are needed to play that particular tune. Plus, many tunes include QR code links to videos so you can see and hear how they are played." -- Rollston Press 198 pages.

Originally published as All-American Concertina Album by Mel Bay Publications, Inc. in 2008, Alan Lochhead’s masterful arrangements of concert music for Anglo concertina are presented here in their entirety with the addition of an easy button numbering and bellows direction tablature system to make these difficult arrangements much more accessible. Especially for this edition, Alan has added an accompaniment to “Georgia Camp Meeting” plus brand new – “Dill Pickles”.These are not easy arrangements, but once you master them you will be able to single-handedly stage your very own summer symphony bandstand concert!" -- Rollston Press 76 pages.
