The Concertina Magazine is being assembled by Ralph Pride. This treasure was edited and published by a team spearheaded by Richard Evans. It ran through 25 issues from 1982 to 1988 and was chockers with articles about Concertinas - from repair and maintenance to history to playing techniques and music. It is being scanned to pdf but as the print was not clear enough it can't be ocr processed and searchable. It will be indexed to assist locating articles.
The Concertina Convergence at the National Folk Festival in 2015 saw concertina and accordion guru Malcolm Clapp present two workshops to the assembled aficionados.
