Thread Name: Alan bell stolen concertina
Subject: RE: Alan bell stolen concertina
Hello All,

My name is Mark McCabe, I'm manager of the Hobgoblin Music shop in Birmingham. I was the one who was lucky enough to be able to spot and retrieve Alan's concertina last Saturday when it came into the shop. I'd just like to say how glad we are that the concertina has been found and is returning to Alan in the same condition as it was when it was stolen. It's always a pleasure to help fellow musicians, especially those working on the folk scene. I am more than happy to receive details, via email, of other peoples stolen instruments so that we can be aware of what to look out for. I can be contacted at Hobgoblin Birmingham on 0121 772 7780 or

All the best,
