A Little Gold Mine

I just stumbled onto this excellent catalogue of CDs of traditional Irish players on the Claddagh Records website. They have 65 different CDs by accordionists from the big stars to the older regional-based players. Some real classics there! Mostly button accordion, of course, but some great players who are worth listening to. A real who's who of Irish box.
Here's the link

looking forward to your next installment Kris, would appreciate some information on fingering but also practising techniques ; having never had a 'tutor', i never seem to structure my practise-time? any suggestions would be most welcome.

thanks

Yes, I'm looking forward to my next installment too!! I've just been busy....

Both fingering and structuring practise time are important subjects. I'll try my best!!
