I'm in Wigan, Lancashire. My instruments, for those who don't already know, are a 12 Bass Galotta and a 72 Bass Chanson.

The music I am most interested in is Folk, Popular Music from the 50's & 60's (my era) and Light Jazz. I play in Folk Clubs mostly, though I have also played for pensioner's groups on occasion.

Please let me know if any of the above interests you.

Stephen Hawkins.

It would be to the common good if most members gave an indication of there whereabouts - I just can't see the point in all the secrecy - and it may lead to new friends the making of!

Well, I can understand the lack of desire to share this info for some, not everyone lives their life in an open manner, but add me to the list of people who add this info to the profile with the expectation that locals will contact you based on one's global location.

In fact, I hope to have an enjoyable meet with a forum member here in Montreal this summer. :)

I'm based in Nottingham, and I've been playing for 8 years now. I'd love to meet up with any fellow accordionists in the East Midlands area if there are any out there.....?

I'm new here also. Currently a melodeon/DBA player, hoping soon to be a CBA player.

Located in western New Jersey (Bordentown to be specific). Always interested in playing music with others or talking about music with others.

HI Deltasalmon,

Welcome to the forum. You'll find more cumulative knowledge here about the accordion than anywhere I have ever seen.

Had to mention though, my wife and I moved to FL about 2 1/2 yrs ago and on our drive south we stayed in Bordentown one night. What a lovely town. A real sleeper hidden in southwestern NJ. Looks like an old colonial town ( probably was). Not at all as most think of NJ ( although most of NJ is much nicer than its rep). We had a tremendous meal at a restaurant called "Toscano". The entire area was a very pleasant experience.

I live in Brisbane, Australia. Is there anybody here?

I am from Taiwan and have learned C-system CBA for about 10 months.
Just have moved to Brisbane for about 2.5 months but couldn't find any teacher
or player here. So frustrated about this...

And seems nobody here play CBA.
