Bubinga Tree of Life Special

This is a photo of one of our latest Tree on Life Special models. This particular instrument is bubinga with bloodwood trim on the body and bloodwood capping on the cut away handles. It will be travelling to the Czech Republic very soon. If you would like me to work with you to create a special instrument just for you, contact me at . We can work out a layaway plan.

Professional with a Professional

Please read the article in the "Celtic Life Magazine",( see ) as another pair of professional musicians use an Edgley Profession Model concertina. Fergus O'Byrne was a member of the well-known Canadian East Coast group, "Ryan's Fancy," which was a popular TV programme based on weekly television performances on CBC. They also toured and performed across Canada and elsewhere, and both father and son Fergus O'Byrne continue to this day. The article does not specifically mention the concertina, but I made this one for them and it appears in the photo.
