Classical Accordionist Joseph Macerollo receives Order of Canada award
That’s pretty cool, how many accordionists get their country’s second highest honour? I believe Minnie White, the great folk-player from Newfoundland got one back in 1993, so who’s next in 2023?
Congrats to Mr. Macerollo for sure.
Here he is talking about accordions in a swell interview video. I like the cool old instruments they show in there. Note also Joe’s free-bass system with all the single notes up above the standard stradella buttons. Gotta have long fingers to play up there.:
And here’s a bit on the CBC.
By the way, you classical-accordion fans are getting ready for the Coupe Mundiale in Victoria, BC in August, right?
