Spare Parts Concertina Band

Spare Parts play arrangements of British dance music on three concertinas and fiddle. We also sing in harmony and with the concertinas.

The three of us help to run the Lewes Saturday Folk Club, Lewes, Sussex, which meets every Saturday night at the Elephant and Castle and also puts on the nationally-known Lewes Saturday Folk Club Workshops for folk musicians and singers.

Bryan runs the monthly session Concertinas Anonymous there.

Also at the Elephant and Castle, Bryan and Valmai support Andy Warburton in running the monthly Lewes Favourites for people wanting to learn tunes popular in local English tunes sessions and helped to compile the Lewes Favourites tune book which resulted from the practice evenings.
