Sunday, January 9th, 2022
2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

What is a Concertina?! Well, it is like a mini button accordion often used to play fast Irish Dance music.


The absolute beginners will learn the finger placements and notes of their first scale beginning at 2:00.


The intermediate concertina players will begin at 3:00.   For ages 14 - 99.


Please dust off and bring your 30 button Irish-Anglo concertina to this new Irish Concertina Club session. We recommend the 30-button Irish-Anglo concetinas in C/G tuning.  The  concertinas with only 20 buttons can work fine temporarily but most learners upgrade to 30 buttons within a few months. Please be sure your concertina is not an English concertina because those are designed to play Baroque music and have completely different fingerings and note location.


If you need to rent or borrow an Irish-Anglo Concertina, please phone 250 - 245 - 5778. Also, we can offer some guidance to purchase a used 30-button Anglo Irish Concertina online.


The Cedar Heritage Centre is located at 1644 MacMillan Road, directly off Cedar Road, near Freisen's Hardware Store. The Heritage Centre is a public space and proof of vaccine, ID, and masks will be required at the door.


Toe-tappin' Irish music is well-known to cure anxiety and loneliness. Build your confidence and community and try this vibrant, energetic instrument, and no, there is no requirement to be of Irish heritage! Irish music fans are known to live all around the world.


Please phone or email so we do not exceed the hall capacity during these Covid-cautious times.
