Anglo or English Concertina?

The English Concertina is primarily used to play English folk music. It's a unisonoric instrument meaning each button plays the same note on both the push and pull. This button layout facilitates the easy playing of chords, making the English concertina a great fit for accompanying ballads and sea shanties.

Anglo Concertinas are bisonoric instruments. This means that each button plays two separate notes, depending on whether you are pushing or pulling the bellows. Anglo Concertinas typically feature either a Wheatstone or Jeffries layout and are more commonly used for playing Traditional Irish Music.
