She appears to not know the difference between an accordion, and melodeon, but apart from that, great stuff.

Surely it is a "squeeze-box" John; that should cover it all!

She knows exactly what she plays, being at the top of her field. It's all a matter of nomenclature. A melodeon is a name used in England and Scotland for a type of accordion (or accordeon) that has buttons and sounds different notes on the pull and push but in Ireland the same name denotes a one-row button accordion and a 2-row is usually just an accordeon. On the continent the melodeon is usually called a diatonic accordion.
I would use the term squeeze-box to include the various types of concertinas with the various types of accordions.

There is a massively long thread somewhere on this site re the nomenclature issue, but as Manitas says, in Ireland, the more common name is a button accordion ( or accordeon) for what is known in England as a melodeon. I have a B/C two row button accordion which looks identical to the same manufacturer's G/D melodeon. If asked. I tell folk my instrument is a button accordion, but it doesn't really worry me what people call it unless they call it a concertina!
