Thanks for the welcome...just realised I never said what I had ....

It is a Weltmeister 48/34 which I bought from a well known accordionist in Totnes (Devon). very pleased with it . It joins sundry guitars and a very cheap melodeon .I am a refugee from another site which seems to have shut up shop suddenly.

Welcome aboard.......cajun and zydeco are two of my newest favourite musical genres.......are they interchangeable or two very distinct and different styles...still new to me...

Now they seem to be interchangeable but I think that originally zydeco was a combination of the original Cajun (Acadian) and blues.
