A new member, over on the Scottish Concertina Forum, just posted this info & request & as it's fairly quiet over there at the moment, I thought I'd post his request for info over here.
"One of the old time players I met 20 years ago in Scotland was David Haxton, living in Glasgow by then, but he is dead since I guess about 15 years now.
He was since a long time member of ICA too and a very competent player.
He used a tenortreble and a very nice, I think it was a 40 key Aeola baritone starting on Eb2 instead of normally F2 or G2 for common baritones.
I am curious to hear if anyone knew him and maybe even who might enjoy the instrument nowadays..."

I too would love to know if David's Concertinas are still in Scotland.
