We are a concertina band named J25 (after the venue where we practice, close to Junction 25 of the M5), playing multi-part band arrangements, mostly on English system concertinas, though Duet system and Anglo system players are very welcome if they can cope with a variety of keys. We have close links with West Country Concertina Players.
