Jon McNamara 8 July 1943 – 27 May 2019

It is with sadness that the ICA has to announce the passing of Jon McNamara on 27 May 2019.

Jon was ICA member since 1998. He for many years until 2016 chaired the committee of the ICA, edited and published many music supplements until 2014 and filled in with Concertina News when editor Gill Noppen-Spacie was ill.

He also edited and produced the PICA (Papers of the International Concertina Association) from 2004 until 2013 for Allan Atlas of which 10 issues were published.

Brian Peters – “Kersal Moor” Broadside ballad written in 1838 about the great Chartist meeting at Kersal Moor, Salford, set to a tune written by Brian. Live performance at the Bridge Folk Club, Newcastle, November 2018. The song features in ‘The Road to Peterloo’ concert performance featuring Brian Peters, Pete Coe and Laura Smyth.
