Gibb Sahib Melodeons on board ships? (43) RE: Melodeons on board ships? 31 May 18

Howard Jones, you're speaking too many facts for Mudcat. People here want to take history and folklorize it, like make up some wive's tale about how they heard from their second cousin's dog (which makes it more authentic... since the dog was a German shepherd who loved boats) that people didn't bring the most popular (non-fiddle) instruments of the whole second half the 19th and 1st quarter of the 20th century on ships, which were their main means of conveyance, cause they were scared or something.

Practically every country in the world has an accordion tradition because why? Because the accordion got there ON A SHIP!
