I met someone tonite who heard from a West Virginia old timer (Melvn Wine maybe?) that the concertina used to be called the push fiddle. I'm wondering how widespread that name was, how much the concertina was used in the southern mountains, and what other nicknanes that concertina has had

The Dr Doolittle name for the head-at-each-end creature, the Push-Me-Pull-You, always makes me think of my concertinas.

Thrup'ny bit (after a much-loved octagonal 3penny coin from our pre-decimal UK currency)

Thrup'ny bit is also rhyming slang - usually in the plural.
