GUEST,Arne Langsetmo UK's best Melodeon players (160* d) RE: Uks best Malodeon players 04 Feb 03


Yes, it is Roger Watson. Dunno if he's playing much
around nowadays. He was with John Tams way back (IIRC,
they did "Pull Down Lads" together, at least that's
what Roger said), and then had his own band (saw them in
1988 or so). Lost touch with him since then, but a fine
bloke. Roger wrote a book on melodeon playing, and recounts
that the editor came back and told him that his scores
left out the markings to indicate when to push or pull,
which gave him a chuckle. . .      ;-)

And don't forget John Jones. Maybe not the flashiest
player, but he loves the music and is a pleasure to
watch.

Cheers,
