Sorry guys but electronic accordion it's not for me. I still don't understand it...I took my first accordion lesson 67 years ago. Back in my early days the "Golden Age Of Accordion" was still alive here in
the US. The accordion was well accepted and popular up to the 60's when the popularity began to wain with the introduction
of Rock & Roll. The use of an accordion in popular music was replaced by Guitars & Drums as the most accepted instruments.
I continued with the accordion in performances for Weddings, Parties & night club gigs back in the 60's thru 80's with models of
Cordovox and then MiDi models. These electronic acoustic models aided in keeping the accordions acceptance alive but
never the same as the pre 60's. In the 90's the "V" type digital accordions appeared and the popularity of the accordion has
exploded in performances . Many talented accordionists are using these new digital models with enthusiastic response.
Michael Bridge as many other well known acoustic accordion performers are now appearing with a digital model and entertaining
new audiences --
You must listen from 5:40 of his performance.
THE ACCORDION IS BACK !!!
