We can probably all think of other ' Accordian Crimes ' perhaps almost worse than E. Annie Proulx did . We had a family member who insisted on inflicting some on us -- at every opportunity in fact .
You could probably include bagpipes and trombones as well.
:)jcn - I heard the bagpipes at a funeral and it was perfectly lovely.
Yes, bagpipes can be really eerie and beautiful. Remember the Royal Scot's Greys and their recording of Amazing Grace? Made your hair stand on end.
I agree with that meaning...except for one particular CD I have by Lynne August, a blind piano-accordianist playing Creole/Zydeco music...it is brilliant. I love the CD.
I knew Henri's 'family member'.I am so glad she is dead.She was no Gentleman!
Oh, I like this.
