Join us for a popular evening concert from tutors of the WCCP Concertina weekend.
West Country Concertina Players are a Club of friendly concertina enthusiasts formed in 1983 and one of very few teaching clubs in the country. They are joined by guests:
Claire Wren – Concertina Band tutor
Michael Jary – English Tutor
Michael was first introduced to the concertina at school by Alastair Anderson and has played with bands such as Ola and The Pack and now spends most of his time calling and playing with Fiddlers Wreck ceilidh band. He has previously run workshops at local concertina clubs, Swaledale, Whitney and Folkworks Summer Schools.

Andy Turner fell in love with traditional music in the late seventies, and has been performing it ever since. He is a fine singer of traditional songs, and a leading exponent of the anglo-concertina. Andy is a member of Oxfordshire group Magpie Lane and dance bands Geckoes, Chameleons and The Oxford NAGS. He performs solo, and in a duo with fiddle-player Mat Green. He has also worked with Chris Wood, the Oyster Band and the Mellstock Band.
