There is an Accordionist who lives on the west coast of Canada named Ronen Segal.. Every Sunday afternoon he plays and talks about the accordion. The videos are steamed live and then posted to watch a few hours later. Ronen maintains a chat board while he is playing and people from around the world suggest tunes they’d like him to play or pose questions they have. He is the most genial and happy accordionist imaginable,he beams when he plays. For Ronen,and I only met him online myself and live across this enormous country from him,playing the accordion is the most joyful experience and he loves to share this with his viewers.
His show is Sunday afternoon one pm eastern time which is the same time as New York City.
Always a joy to watch. He also runs an online school but you don’t have to,join that to follow him.Really a great player and great advocate for the instrument.

Thanks Alan and Bocsa. Interesting, gonna check out the Sunday show. I've watched and liked a lot of his tutorials but always thought of him as "Moshe Zuchter," his channel name. I wonder what it means.

That is very confusing. I agree. He said once he uses Moshe as his online name but he doesn’t so...

I'm going to log in and watch the show today. Checked out his site accordionlove too and it looks pretty good, I think I'll try a month for $14 and see how I like it..... Says everything from tangos to polkas but I don't see any polkas in the song listing.

Mostly Scottish and on a BCC# Button box ;)

More playing, less Rabbit than Moshe ;)

Yes someone once commented on the mvt. I think it’s great.
Tom the accordion love siite is being completely revamped. You can write Ronen and ask about polkas.

Hi Alan, I enjoyed the Sunday show and he pointed out the 2 polkas he's currently got on the site. I signed up and will try a month to see how it goes. He seems very approachable and there is a lot of interesting content online.
