This video was recorded at St Roch’s Irish Music Workshops in Glasgow as part of their recital series. It features the hymn Crown Him With Many Crowns’ – written by Matthew Bridges (1800-1894) and Ross Ainslie’s March (written by Simon Thoumire).
What I love about this recording is all the young people and adults sitting around listening to a concertina making strange noises! My son is providing is holding the camera and his friends keep putting their fingers in front of the camera and he obviously has a sore arm as the camera keeps moving. If you listen carefully you can hear his friends commenting on what I’m playing thinking it’s funny. Definitely not perfect so it’s perfect!
