Eagle concertina has a rich heritage dating back to the early 1900's. Continuing the tradition of Star Concertina hand crafted by Walter Kadlubowski, a skilled Polish immigrant who came to the United States to live in a free country. The craftmanship was passed from father to son - Walter Jr. A new era had arrived and Eagle Concertina was born.
In 1988 Walter Jr. brought Rich Raclawski, a young musician eager to learn how to build concertinas, into his shop to pass on the tradition of concertina building and repair.
In November of 1992 Walter H. Kadlubowski passed away. He was a master builder and repairman of concertinas. He gave unselfishly of his time and talents so that the concertina would live for another generation to enjoy. Rich Raclawski continues the tradition of building new Eagle Concertinas one at a time as well as repairing and restoring vintage concertinas.
