Chris Sherburn has played the Anglo Concertina from the age of eight. His parents organised Goole Folk Club, then gave lodgings to the artists. Monday nights he watched them perform. Tuesday morning he played truant and got a free lesson. Chris was mad keen for the music and practised incessantly. After honing his talent at innumerable Irish music sessions, he went on to perform at major events and folk festivals.
Dave Mallinson didn’t discover traditional music until the late age of twenty-two and is completely self taught. Hard work, sheer dogged determination and lengthy practice have had to be his way of life. His constant struggle to maintain his skill gives him a unique insight into the problems and difficulties facing beginners and novices. Chris’s enormous skill and knowledge combined with Dave’s affinity with beginners make an ideal combination to present this introduction to the Anglo concertina and traditional music.
