The Days of the Polish Accordion: The First Accordionists *
Poland, 1935. Within a few years Polish accordion had replaced the fiddle to become the most important instrument at rural weddings: shocking, to say the least! Accordionists could barely keep up with the demand.
Couples were often prepared to put back their weddings to ensure they got a band with a accordionist.
The book, which contains archive and recording session photographs, discusses these maestros ? the first accordionists ? and their music can be found on the accompanying CD. Recorded between 1981 and 1995.
* In the early twenties accordions of specific construction, similar to concertinas, started to be built in Central Poland. Village musicians called that instrument "harmonia" and loved very much.
