February 18th - For World Concertina Day. To celebrate WCD the Yorkshire Concertina Club will once again be putting on a short informal Concert this afternoon. This will take place in the downstairs bar of the venue where we have our regular monthly meetings upstairs. We will be playing a selection of our favourite arrangements in parts, led by our esteemed YCC Band-leader, Carolyn Wade, Please note - the bar is a members-only private venue, so we will not be able to host any non-member visitors. Besides celebrating WCD, the event provides us with an excellent opportunity to thank the venue, who kindly provide our meeting room. We are nonetheless anticipating a fun time and - maybe - even interest from one or two in taking up our beloved instrument!
April 21st - Guest Nick Barber, who will look at Scandi tunes from his book 'Nodebog' (no need to buy it - he'll bring material).

May 12th - This is the second Sunday rather than the third, to enable Club Members to participate in the Swaledale Squeeze the following weekend.
