It looks like the accordion is doing well here! (Sweden) . In the first 15 seconds, there's even a brief glimpse of a guy playing a finto piano accordion 😀

Dingo,
Thanks for the link to this great video. It strikes a note for me as I have visited Sweden often and have two sons who live there.
The tune at the opening of the video is known to me as gärdebeläten . It has ‘crossed’ the North Sea and is known in the Scottish northern isles of Shetland and Orkney. If my memory is correct the tune may have been used in Shetland for a wedding march. ie. It was played to get the wedding party from the church to the hall where the festivities, feast and dance would continue.
