This doesn't have a big presence on the internet but I came across this on Facebook and thought I would share it in case it attracted someone deeper into the world of accordions. I haven't been to one of these myself but this is the 3rd (or even 4th?) year. The rest of the text is taken from Facebook. I believe "Bruno Continence" is Bruno Continenza and not a trade stand. The Master Butchers Band would like to make it clear that they are not linked to me in any way.
