Graham,

I was seeing your fingers flying... then saw the "pygmies" tag and saw tiny dancing feet!
Nice interplay with rhythmn and lead accordions.
Keep up the squeezebox fun you bring to us here.

I know I say it every time, but I really do love the sound of an accordion! I wish more people played it, but I've been told it's quite difficult to play. Perhaps that's why.

Thanks for keeping the accordion alive, even if only through the use of RealTracks!

Hello, Graham

Very fun!
The accordion's sprint is amazing.
This tune reminds me of the German style beer restaurant near my house.
Accordion polka is always flowing as background music there.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Loved this polka, Graham, reminds me so much of the little elves in the windows of the stores in Bamberg, Germany.
