Today my father and I tried out what it sounds like with the accordion and the banjo together. we only played it once and then recorded it … that’s why it’s not perfect … but i hope you like it
That is wonderful, @Severin! I love the banjo/accordion combo!
Thank you @BanjoBen!
Accordions make everything better! Ommmpa!
I think I’ll just "copy-paste"what everyone else has said. That was swell!
That must be Severin from some Seventy years ago! I think it does not have to perfect to be liked. And very likeable!
Thank you very much @JohnM
This was absolutely fantastic! Great job!!
Some of yall might remember I’ve commented things about the accordion on other posts. My brother plays a big one, very similar looking to the one in the video. It’s a sound I grew up with. Several years ago while visiting my folks (they lived across the country) my “banjo son” Branden played his banjo, pop was on the guitar, and my brother on the accordion and they played this song ! Thank you for posting it!!
Thank you @Dragonslayer!
Glad you like it! thank you @Simone
Ben didn’t tell you, but the accordion is a fundamental bluegrass instrument.

Loved it! That makes me want to go out and buy an accordion.
I love it! I’ve become good friends over the last year with a guy named Jeff Taylor. He started a Grammy-winning band called The Time Jumpers. Here’s a video of him talking about how accordion became a big part of their sound:
Jeff Taylor is so cool! I’ve been a fan of his for a while, and I got to meet him while I was in Nashville
