Hello and welcome from me too; we’re part time in the Gard, although not in the last 6 months, unfortunately.
Hope you get back to the Gard soon!

Welcome Cat, there are a few gifted players who can make a melodeon sound like a musical instrument - difficult to believe, but absolutely true! ;) Are you one of them?

Hi Biggles.

I cannot play the melodeon but I play bagpipe lullabies for those who have trouble sleeping.

My father, from Mayo, played melodeon, chromatic and piano accordians. He had no musical training but could play many instruments other than wind ones.
With a large Irish contingent in the town he was always in demand but he mainly played in dance bands during and after the war.

Just as an aside, you need to come to Tulle for Nuits de Nacre if you want to hear an accordion played.- heavy metal, jazz, classical and everything in between! Amazing sounds! (As well as a lot of ‘traditional’ stuff! Euk! )

I love the 'traditional stuff', very Celtic in origin. Every month near here a live band at the oldies' ginguette.

If it’s well played it can be ok, but everybody here plays one!
