My wife inherited a large accordion from her father, but has never got on with it. Don't ask, but it's a female thing. :-) She thinks a concertina might suit her, but there are several types. As she read music (she is an oboe player and singer of renaissance music), it seems that the English concertina would be best, but we would welcome advice from anybody on here.

Ollie King, are you around? :-)

He is, but not on here (he wrote that he lost his log in years ago, apparently, but doesn't seem that bothered in finding a solution).  He's active on FB though.

Hey Paul, you do realise that if your wife does get a concertina, you'll "never get no rest"?!!  Wink

I'm raising money for the Sue Ryder hospice in Cheltenham, cycling 90km around (and over) the Cotswolds on 24th June.

I thought that was mama, not wife. :-)

Thanks, I will message Ollie.
