The Anglo Concertina Music of John Kirkpatrick.
The Anglo Concertina Music of John Kirkpatrick. This wonderful book is a must for all concertina players and is now available at Red Cow Music.
England’s John Kirkpatrick is without a doubt the most influential harmonic-style Anglo concertina player of the last several decades.
From the beginning of the Folk Revival in the late 1960’s up until the present day, his rambunctious and boisterous playing, as well as his delicate and thoughtful song accompaniments have been featured on hundreds of recordings.
Here are over 70 tunes and songs as played by John, all carefully transcribed in the original keys to be playable on a 30-button C/G Anglo concertina.
In addition to a wealth of traditional tunes and songs, many of John’s original compositions are included as well as his three-part series “How to Play the Anglo” first printed in 1972.
All tunes feature the same easy-to-use button numbering and tablature system found in all the other Rollston Press concertina books, along with Button Maps to show exactly which buttons are needed for every tune.
