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.

If you know of a nice property to rent in 'Mid Wales' (Powys really, possibly Ceredigion/Monmouthshire) for a year from Aug 2020 do please drop me a line.  Many thanks!

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