Item Type: Concertina Revival - Photograph
Full Description: This image is of the noted Northumbrian concertina player and Northumbrian piper Alistair Anderson, Leading a workshop session with Gordon Cutty at the Kendal Concertina Convention. Both Gordon and Alistair did much in the 1960s and '70s did much to popularise the playing of the English concertina in both traditional and dance band style. The photograph is one of the archive of photographic images taken at the Kendal Concertina Convention, 1973 by Paul Adams (now head of the Fellside record label). The two major events held at The Brewery Arts Centre brought together many younger players new to the instrument, and older players such as Harry Hatton, Frank Butler, Arthur Austin, and the remarkable Colonel Sanderson Memorial Concertina Band from the Liverpool Orange Lodge fraternity. The photographs are © Paul Adams, and used with his permission and with our thanks.
