One of my favourite concertina players posted a link to a new recording earlier this afternoon and now it's driving me bonkers.

Dangerous, Pete - what a gorgeous tune! (and beautifully played too). If anything was going to make me want to learn the concertina, you may just have found it  ::) One thing at a time!

Danny Chapman makes the concertina come alive, but you might want to catch up to his melodeon playing standard before moving on to another instrument. Both of these are played for amusement though, his first instrument is the cello.

Jealous, moi?  ::)

This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Both Of Us by Sparks is earworming me today. At least it has replaced the song from the Go Compare advert!

Repeal of the Licensing Laws by The Pogues is sort of my default earworm, except when it gets pushed aside by something else.
