[Harp-L] Accordian and harmonica idea
Mon Mar 20 11:14:29 EDT 2017
For about 10 years from about 1997 until he moved back to Canada for good (due to health), I teamed up with Ken Smith when we did shows with the Ft. Myers harmonica band and the Palm city harmonica band.
He on accordion, bass or chord harmonica, and me on chromatic, diatonic, accordion. I wasn’t real crazy about it because Ken (God rest his soul) would get carried away and play with too much volume.
I also played with other accordion players in the Ft. Myers area. They knew that their sound could overwealm mine, so they held back on the bellows, and ‘tickled’ the keys. Just like in this video.
