Music by Trés Moutarde - American Music for Small Orchestra from Another Time

"Our music is from the early decades of the 20th century - a time when music heard was, almost always, music heard live. The recording industry was in its infancy. ... In this world, small orchestras flourished and dotted the land. Published arrangements of popular tunes of the day found a large and ready national market. It is these arrangements that Trés Moutarde draws from." -- liner notes Treble and Baritone Concertina

Cormac Begley

"All of the pieces of music that feature on this album instantly struck a chord with me the first time I heard them. My approach here has been simply to connect as honestly as possible with them. I wanted to produce a solo concertina album using the full range of concertinas from bass, baritone, treble to piccolo, and to highlight some of the instrument’s possibilities spanning across seven octaves. Each track is one take, featuring one concertina and are all free from studio manipulation. I have sourced previously unrecorded music, new compositions and other tunes within the tradition that have been my companions and my internal sound track during my life to date." -- Cormac Begley Anglo Concertina

Harmonica and Button-Box - Brendan Powers and Tim Edey

"Brothers of the Free Reed - that's what we are! The Harmonica and Irish Button-box share much in common: their sound is made by air passing through metal free-reeds, they both use an in-out air direction to activate the reeds, and their tuning layout is quite similar. But it's in the differences that the beauty of this unique combination lies. The box's large steel reeds make it considerably louder, and instead of the lungs Brendan uses to puff air through his mouth-harp, Tim employs a powerful bellows action. He can also generate bass and chord accompaniment, which is very limited on the moothie. But where the harmonica loses out in sheer power it gains in expression - notably the ability to bend notes, that 'blues harp' wailing sound adored by all. Tim and Brendan's special blend of these two types of free-reed instrument is a perfect vindication of the old adage: The Whole is Greater than the Sum of the Parts." Button Accordion
