    Hey guys!

    So I thought I'd share a video of my little band for you all. We're still looking for an accordion player so that I can just sing. But, anyway, this is a video of a brand new song. Unfortunately our drummer couldn't be there, but if anyone has any accordion-ideas for it, you should come play with us!

    OH, and Andrew, I'm not sure if we talked much at the meeting. I'm kind of shy! But I'm tall and a beginner player and a student of Phil's. He was the emcee.

    So yeah, check it out on our facebook: www.facebook.com/skrimshawny

    Hey guys! I'm still very much a beginner but I'm really looking forward to the meeting on Sunday! I'm going to bring my accordion, but I'm not sure how successful I'll be at learning any of the Balkan workshop material. I'm going to try!

    I'm also going to try and con one of you into playing in my band. My bandmate who plays violin, banjo, and guitar may come along for the workshop as well. I hope that's ok!

    I will bring my accordion or it will bring me --either way.BTW How far are you from a #2 or 3 train ?

    June 4, 2013

    • may

      it's about 8 blocks. F or G line Bergen St. is just a block away. depend on where you are coming from, there is also Bus65 that will drop you off right at the corner.

    I appreciate Andrew's optimism but i know in listening to the real pros in recordings, lets say i need a lot of work--that is one reason
    I am interested in the Accordion Club.

      great! welcome to the club, Martin. Looking forward to meeting you this Sunday. Bring your accordion if you can!

    I do not read music and play by ear based on recordings I have on a u tube site of Bulgarian and other Balkan folk music. More of a comment than a question.

    June 3, 2013

    • Andrew C.

      Then you should pick up the tunes fairly quickly. Most of the pieces I plan to bring are fully scored with music notation, chords and lyrics...
