Past Events

SqueezEast 9th June 2019

We had a great day in the magnificent ballroom at Stamford Arts Centre, playing some excellent music under the skilled baton of conductor and arranger Paul Barrett. Our 35 piece band consisted of treble, baritone and bass instruments, with a brief appearance from a miniature to play a piccolo line! English, Anglo and Duet concertinas were all represented. We thank all our participants and the organisers and helpers for making the event so enjoyable and we look forward to making more music together next year.

Turn on (and off) each player in turn to hear some of the tunes we learnt during the day.
