Beg to differ, sir!! Accordions are the proud legacy of Romulus and Remus, the wolf-sucklings of ancient Rome, and the Muses of Paris; accordions are the symbols of a proud heritage of fine music in streets, coming out of windows in springtime, echoing down subway and Metro tunnels, moving souls of all sizes in city fairs and block parties, country weddings, beer halls and gardens all across Europe. I defend them as instruments of fine grace and beauty, challenging to learn but more rewarding by far than a penny whistle or sweet potato or Jew's harp or moonshine jug.
Fie on your analogies!! They are corrupt!! Here's a toast to fine accordion music and fair accordion musicians of all shapes and sizes from Everywhere!
