Subject: RE: Cotati Accordion Festival
Welcome Doug. I think I can explain the fascination the festival has with Dick Contino. He falls into the category of player who is technically excellent, and admired by other players for his technical prowess, but is pretty boring to the rest of us. As much as I have to acknowledge his formidable technique, I agree with you completely, I can't listen to him either, and find something else to do while he's playing.
