I would love to play "Libertango" ......
Just imagine the noise level of over 1500 accordions !
It's a great idea.

It would be quite a feat to gather 1,517 accordionists together in one place, and I wish Nic all the luck in the World for this attempt at immortality.

I was more struck by the 8ft 4in accordion, and bewildered that anyone would make such an instrument in the first place. Is it played by a team?

Anyway, I will look forward to reading about the attempt in the press and on these pages. Good luck to all those of you who join in this attempt; I hope the rain keeps off your bellows.

Stephen.
