  • That's great! Keep at it. I played seriously for about 10 years, then not-so-seriously for a few more.

    The mention of all those musicians makes me want to load up my iPod with more accordion music. :-)

  • Yes, I've been playing—or, more accurately, practicing—regularly for about 1.5 years now; that's how long I've been taking private lessons on the piano accordion (Stradella system).

    I do like a fair amount of Those Darn Accordions' material and I've seen them in concert once.

    I also enjoy Dominique Rivière, Buckwheat Zydeco, DeVotchKa, Phil Cunningham, Stas Venglevski, Yann Tiersen, and Lars Hollmer to name a few.

    To date, my favorite accordion song is "Boeves Psalm" by Lars Hollmer. It's beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

  • Accordions are wonderful things.

    Well, effigy, I kind of drifted away from it when I went to college. Though I still have my original instrument. :-) Do you play regularly? And further, are you a fan of Those Darn Accordions?

  • Yarb, I too know almost nothing about accordions yet have a thing for them.

    What is it about accordions?!

    Welcome to Wordie, effigy. (And thanks for involuntarily hosting an accordion discussion.)
