Brun Addendum

My use of a working title to describe my first instrument in the past few blog posts was causing a little confusion, so I have now chosen an official name for the model: the Holden Concertinas Brun.

The name comes from the River Brun, which most historians believe my home town is named after (Brun Ley over time became Burnley)1. The name of the river may have come from the Old English word BrĂșn, which is an adjective meaning, “brown, dark, dusky; having metallic luster, shining.”2
