Tich’s Reel

An ‘experimental’ version of this tune, played in the style of Cormac Begley’s inspirational bass concertina album, B. Play in the lower register, single reed, and rather than trying to avoid buttons and bellows noise, make use of its percussive qualities. Cormac’s rather better at this than I am, so buy his album.

The tune is Tich’s Reel, trad English, which I learned off an old 1980’s LP Red Shift, I think. Played on a Hohner 114 4-stop melodeon in G.
