According to Accordion Lady

I am a special education teacher, a speech therapist, a grandmother, a musician. I’m going to be blogging about accordions and life. Part accordion, part philosophy. When my midlife struck hard I found accordions!!! Squeeze boxes, bayans, concertinas, bandoneons, and more. Accordion therapy!!! All for now

In my early forties when my children grew up and left home, I found a beautiful, lonely 1930’s era accordion in a flea market in Missouri.  It worked.  The mellow tone of those hand tooled reeds took me away to another place.  Ten years and eighteen accordions later, I’ve started on a new journey of friendship, community and connections.  I’ve heard hundreds of accordion stories.  I’ve learned how intertwined the accordion is with world cultures.  I hope to document and hear more stories about people’s accordions, about their culture and about their lives.
