mikesamwild Melodeon Domination? (62* d) RE: Melodeon Domination? 17 Dec 10

I was at a concert by Andy Cutting the other week and he calls his a button accordion, it's gone well beyond a 'melodeon' as the Irish decided. When I was younger 'cat melodeon' was a derogatory term in Irish music circles ( although like everything the style has come round again as button accordion players got so slick as to be more divorced from the tradition)

what gets me is how expensive some boxes are and how they are used for push/pull playing in the street, must wreck the bellows and reeds.
