Concertina Recordings

We appreciate your patience as we work to expand our site. Concertina recordings and reviews will be coming soon. Meanwhile please see our list of concertina recordings.

The concertina (called a squeezebox by many) is played by squeezing its collapsible bellows between its solid ends, while pressing buttons on each end to produce the notes desired. In contrast to its relative the accordion, which was invented almost simultaneously, there are no chord buttons; each button on a concertina plays just one note at a time.
