Thread Name: National Accordion Awareness Month
Subject: RE: National Accordion Awareness Month
Fadac, you know I've thought about that, and it might have had something to do with my love of music. Of course I don't REALLY hate the (big) accordion, that's just my sardonic sense of humour. Now Mudcatters please don't laugh at me but when I've seen someone like Myron Floren, or Dick Contino, play, I'm amazed at their technical skill, and I do kinda like it.
I've been fortunate to have two fine concertina players on my last two albums. David Paton at Folk-Legacy, and Grit Laskin on the new one with Borealis.
