Anyone in Cologne? I am kinda new to the city anyway! I have never really met other players here just some buskers. Everyone plays guitar.

I live near Saint Malo on the north coast of Brittany, France. If anyone comes this way, please get in touch. The only accordions I've seen round here are the traditional wooden diatonic ones !

Thank you, Dunlustin - no I haven't heard of them before. From their website, they are very much traditional players, as are all those I have come across so far. The diatonic and Breton dancing seem to go together and most of it seems to happen further west than us. Finistère, the most westerly department in France, is far more into the accordion and traditional dancing than our area (sadly). But then Saint Malo is the home of the Corsaires, who pirated for the king and the songs and tunes around here are very much in that theme, or fishing. England also had its corsaires - men like Drake and Raleigh collected booty for Queen Elizabeth I (and no doubt kept plenty for themselves !)

Hi Brandy....I am down in the Richmond VA area. There appears to be an accordion club in the DC area. http://www.washingtonaccordions.org/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I have not had any association with them. We have a small club in Richmond but that is even farther away.

I live in Ferrara, in Italy. I don't think there's anyone from this area here, but I try.
