Welcome to the Uprising
Here’s the most recent thing a friend sent me. Good enough for an amusing first post. Looking back on the age when accordions were very, very popular. The millions of accordions abandoned in closets for the last forty years are fuel for the current renaissance, like a flood of cheap guitars once fuelled rock and roll.
Our friend Alan from the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle pointed out that La Tosca was the accordion brand for the Gretsch guitar company. One of my favourite guitar-players from Seattle, Marc Olsen who played with the band Sage always played a Gretsch. I love that sound. Somehow I wonder if their accordions were as nice. I should mail away for a catalog.
