This post from the Coope Boyes & Simpson workshop thread is valid here so I'm copying it:

Our workshops are mixed ability, but not really suitable for absolute beginners (e.g. someone who needs to learn how to find middle C on their instrument). On the other hand, anyone who can already do everything that a workshop is offering doesn't need to be there.

We try to make our workshops inspirational as well as instructive; I hope that doesn't sound pretentious. We hope that people will take away a few solid tunes, songs or techniques for future use, and also that they'll get some ideas to work on and develop in the longer term. We ask our tutors to make sure that the participants do plenty of playing and singing rather than sitting still being lectured.

Unfortunately we aren't in a position to offer full courses: for that you need Folkworks, Hands-On Music, the Wren Trust, and all the other excellent people working steadily away to help people perform traditional British music.

While I'm at it, you'll finding reasonably-priced Lewes area bed & breakfast accommodation here; in the summer months, there are camping and camper van facilities at Spring Barn Farm Park on the outskirts of Lewes.

Donuel's link shows a very nice example of an Anglo concertina playing dance tunes in the Irish style.

Steve Turner plays the English system for song accompaniment and has a very different style.

Far from naff! Dick Miles visits the Lewes Saturday Folk Club on 12th. June 2010.

Bob Copper occasionally accompanied himself on English concertina in his later years. He used to practice with the concertina in his trousers in order to muffle the sound as his wife objected to it. He wasn't wearing the trousers at the time, needless to say.

The music for Steve's workshop is now ready to be sent out - lyrics and dots of songs. Bryan Creer has helpfully put the dots into midi form for people who don't read fluently.

Happy New Year!

Donuel , my dog does not think its fierce.
He howled all the way through
however, English[instrumental] players could note his bellows movements.
I have to say the playing is very accomplished, style wise I prefer it marginally to Noel Hill,
but Chris Droney or Mary MacNamara appeal to me more, there is more lilt in their playing and less obsession with ornamentation.
of course taste is a very subjective thing, each to their own .
