The organization’s Hall of Fame is not a place, but a collective idea; a means by which the instrument’s musicians honor their peers. The Hall of Fame recognizes international, national and regional chemnitzer concertina musicians, many who are models of the common man. The majority of the Hall of Fame members are local musicians who have kept the instrument alive at its grassroots level. Like few other halls of fame, the World Concertina Congress honors not only aficionados but down to earth players whose contributions are just as important to the instrument’s preservation.
