Flee as a Bird - New CD from Frank Edgley

I have posted pictures of the cover art for my newest CD. The CD contains music from Ireland, Scotland, Northumberland and Lancashire. All tunes are played on two of my Edgley concertinas. It is mostly a solo CD with guitar, and piano accompanyment, with mandolin and fiddle on four of the thirteen tracks. It has been professionally recorded by David Mosher at his "By the Lake Studio, and mastered at "Big Sky." I'm very pleased with their work and can recommend them to anyone. If you would like a copy of this CD, please e-mail me at, or send me a cheque or cash in the amount of $17 which will cover the CD, and postage for anywhere in North America.. All CDs will be shipped in a padded envelope.

New Heritage Model Concertina

This is a photo of the new Heritage Model with concertina reeds. Notice the lower profile of the body of the concertina as the reedpan is within the bellows frame (as are all concertina-reeded instruments.) Reeds are steel in brass frames and are dovetailed into the reedpan. This instrument is genuine ebony (no veneer) with bloodwood trim, but customers may choose their own
wood(s) . This first one has the Tree of Life design grills, but subsequent instruments will have a vine grill pattern from the early 20th century. If you are interested in one of these Heritage Models, please contact me at .
