My name is Alex Holden and I am a full time maker of high quality traditional concertinas. I am located in Burnley in the northwest of England.
I have a background in electronics, metalwork, woodwork and software development. I drive a classic 1963 Morris Minor Traveller that I restored and maintain myself. I have a passion for traditional craft skills and good engineering. My aim is to make my living building excellent quality musical instruments that musicians will love and cherish and that will continue to provide enjoyment generations from now.
As of April 2021 I am no longer taking on new work due to the length of my waiting list.
This Post contains a bit more detail about my background and how I got to where I am today.
