If you play this on Concertina.net, you will notice that on the repeat of the A part, a piano vamp appears. Why?

Also, in the original, the first C in the 11th bar is shown as middle C which just sounds wrong to me.

We should all remember Senghennydd (even if we can't pronounce it). It's coming up to 99 years since 429 colliers were killed in an explosion.

That's just weird - the piano vamp in the wrong key I mean.

No better or worse than most vamping I've heard. ;)

For some reason the tune converter is interpreting the "Fine" annotation as an "F" chord. If you survive the vamping in F and make it to the "D.S.", you'll then be treated to some equally appropriate piano accompaniment in D.

One possible cure is to use exclamation marks, as you did with the segno:

The MIDI still won't play the repeats properly, but at least the piano will be gone.

The middle C in bar 11 jars a bit in the MIDI, but I think it could work ok in actual playing.

A few unsolicited comments, hope you don't mind. The C in bar 13 seems odd to me, and I'd be inclined to play F# there instead. The D in bar 13 looks like it should be a crotchet rather than a dotted minim. The C at the end of bar 5 in the second part should be a semiquaver, not a quaver. The very last bar needs split into two bars.
