Accordion Revolution book
Accordion Revolution by Bruce Triggs: "is the squeezebox remix of music history. Discover how the “Beer Barrel Polka” saved the record industry during the Great Depression; the highest paid instrumentalist in show-biz was an accordionist who secretly married sex-symbol Mae West. And a psychedelic accordion band almost played Woodstock."

Here are the best ways to buy the book - in print (in Canada, US and internationally) and in eBook formats - ePub or Kindle.
