CarolC - add Valerio Longoria to your list of accordion players.

One of the most memorable performances (with accordian or anything) I've listened to was by this blind guy busking in an Edmonton shopping centre. It was one of those places where there's a big open space in the middle of several floors and you could look down from the railing into the food court area at the bottom. This guy was playing an odd mix of popular music, with a lot of show tunes and waltzes. You could hear it echoing all the way to the top balcony. The look on his face was what got me, he seemed so blissed out.
