I don’t know what it is about the accordion that delights me. It is such a phenomenally versatile instrument. It’s not just for polkas.
Take as an example, “Nerdy Accordion Hero.” I have no idea what his name is or where he is from, but the sound he makes is astonishing.
It wouldn’t be Gogol Bordello without the accordion.
Imagine then how I swooned on discovering “Let’s Polka, a website devoted to all things accordion.” My favorite series is “MP3 Monday” where one finds all manner of amazing music.
Vagabond Opera makes me want to move to Portland, Oregon.
