Newfoundland - Who Would Have Thought It?

Post by Stephen Hawkins » Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:46 pm

I know that we have a number of Canadian Accordionists on this forum, and I wonder how many of them will confess to their involvement in this matter.

It was, I assure you, purely by accident that I stumbled across the "Newfoundland Nude Accordionists Calendar." I was quite astounded to think that Canadian Accordionists were prone to playing their instruments in the buff, and worried about the potential consequences of such risky behaviour.

Indecorous behaviour aside, this is definitely a hazardous and foolhardy hobby. Please think about the potential for serious injury before removing your clothes.

Wow ---- You Canadians !!!

Not only can we do it in the buff, but at the same time, we can do it in -30C temperatures while riding our dog sleds to work!
(Brings new meaning to the word "shrinkage... lmao!)

I had to do some digging to get my car out of the snow at the local car parking lot today... we had a little snow. {}

I assume you only play standing up I view of the risks you take sitting down

Jerry,

So, where are you on the calendar? Come on, admit it, you are on there somewhere.

Glenn,

It is a dangerous game, especially for those of us who are hairy specimens. I cringe just thinking about it.

Unfortunately, they refused my application for Mr. February. I think they were looking for people playing concertinas... something about not needing accordionists with big equipment.

(no link with the producer/seller) 2017 Calendar is available now so presumably the crowd funding was successful

Brings to mind one the stories Phil Cunningham tells about Fergie MacDonald, (If you've seen Phil and Aly Bain playing as a duo you'll have heard others.)

Apparently Fergie was playing his accordion somewhere and his kilt had got rather "hitched up," shall we say. (He was dressed "traditionally.")

A concerned lady from the audience went up to him and said, sotto voce, "Mr MacDonald, d'ye know your w***y's hanging out!"

"Is that a Phil Cunningham tune?" said Fergie.




(I hope this is within the rules.)

How could we not know about this?!? I can't find any references since it was a fundraiser in 2003. Is it still going on? I'd buy one.

Reminds me of the old joke:

What do you call a group of topless female accordion players?

"Ladies in Pain"

Jerry,

You should have auditioned with a tin-whistle.

Graham,

Thanks for the link. It was "interesting." The Newfoundland one was just blokes.
