2018@ Seminarhof Drawehn with Vivien Zeller and Jim Penny
For the 28th time we will celebrate the German Concertina Meeting in 2019 –for the sixth time
at the seminar-center “Seminarhof Drawehn”. By now the meeting could well be
called “European Concertina Meeting”, as over the years we had visitors from
Czech Republic, France, Holland, Belgium, Scotland, England, Denmark and Sweden
Welcome are all players ( beginner to advanced ) of all concertina systems
( English, Anglo, Duet, Anglo-German, Deutsch ) with any style of music!
With a bit of luck there will be music available for download
before the event…
Core-time 17th to 19st of Mai
Everybody is welcome to come Thursday evening ( 16th May ) and stay on until Monday (20th May )…
There will be the usual concert with the teachers at our local folk-club on Sunday evening,
Even though the seminar-center has been sold since last year, nothing has changed..

Rob Harbron ( England, English Concertina )
Rob Harbron is widely considered to be the finest English concertina player of his generation,
and is in great demand as a member of Leveret and with many other English folk artists
including Jon Boden and the Remnant Kings, Emma Reid and Emily Portman.
He has developed a unique style of playing, making particular use of chords and the bellows,
and is an inspiring and sympathetic teacher.
Adrian Brown ( England ): Anglo for non-Irish-players
Adrian looks after those Anglo players, who do not want to play
( only ;-) Irish music. His speciality is English folk-music,
Morris and classical anglo-concertina
Together with his wife Susanna he roves the world as „Dapper’s Delight”
Rainer Süßmilch: All that Jazz
Rainer is a professional musician and actor and regularly uses his
Concertina on stage for various musical projects…
Rainer Schwarz: Anglo beginners and „Deutsche Konzertina“ ( 2 row )
Rainer in one of our regulars and mainly looks after those players,who spell their
instruments with a “K”. With his group “HansDans” he plays music from the “waterkant”!
As one of the founders of the meeting Jürgen will be back to look
after poor concertinas in need of some loving care;-)
For the last 25 years Jürgen has supplied great
new instruments to Germany and the rest of the world!
