Not sure how far back you go, but....

If you are refering to 1950s ICA identities, could this be Alex Richards or possibly Matt Blades? Both now deceased, but were very fine exponents of the English system whom I had the pleasure to meet several times here in Australia.

Or of a slightly later vintage, Frank (?) Fingleton, who Tom Jukes once told me was the best *young* English concertina player he had ever heard. (Now that's quite a rap!) Although he lives only an hour or so away from where I now live, I have yet to meet him.
