Bit of a weird mixture.

I've studied classical piano on and off for about 8 or 9 years. As part of that I had to do quite a bit of theory. I also play quite a bit of folk and attend folk schools on keyboard accompaniment. I'm also taking up the concertina (English system) as a folk instrument (far more portable than a piano). Playing folk, it's fascinating to see the differences between highly skilled players. Some of whom lack any technical or theoretical background and while they can play by ear have trouble with dots and also with playing harmonies. Others have the technical training but are less in the folk idiom because of their classical background.
