  1. Hi Dick, I've only just come across your post now. I know it's an old post from 2009, so I hope you get this message. I'm Irish and play Irish music on an Anglo concertina. I've been playing in a few Irish music sessions in Edinburgh but I would like to be able to play a few tunes at home on a weekly basis with one or two musicians, (doesn't have to be concertina players, but good if they are), to bridge the gap between playing on my own at home and playing very nervously in sessions here. Is there anyone you could suggest who might be able to help me out?

    Kind regards,

    Martina Mc Auley.
