I picked it up a few years ago, maybe 2006 or so. Mostly play 2-row button box but as you can see, I'm a bit of a whore and when Ned asked me to help him out with his record, I found the regular piano accordion was a useful piece of kit. We did some fun shows.
I was pretty much the utility infielder in that band, played everything that wasn't guitar or drums.

Pardoned. The difference is that on an accordion, the keys move perpendicular to the travel of the bellows, while on a concertina they're parallel. Speaking of the melody keys only, the bass keys are generally placed concertina-style on both sorts of squeezebox.

And also, concertinas are completely mental and make no sense at all.

lol; Wikipedia says that 2 different people created the concertina independently :blink: for such a "mental" instrument it seems odd that two people would have the same idea.

Well known phenomenon, known as "sympathy of nutbags".
Like "sympathy of clocks" only different.

By the way, here's some concertina playing you'll enjoy... even if you don't like the music :)
