CraigS Great musicians who played an accordion? (59* d) RE: Great musicians who played an accordion? 19 Aug 03

I've played Phil Cunningham's stringed instruments, and they all function as expected (except the Strat). So what? I've seen Peter Bellamy play a guitar! And I've seen John Adams trying to keep a grip on his accordion when the strap broke during the Folk Prom at the Albert Hall (much more amusing!). For what it's worth, I can get a tune out of an accordion/melodeon/concertina, but I don't do it to unsuspecting people (like I don't take my banjo out of the house, unlike Leadfingers). But back to the thread - nobody mentioned Roy Castle, who was quite a good trumpeter, but played accordion (face it, he played anything).
