Art Stoyles,Newfoundland accordionist
« on: December 29, 2007, 11:32:05 PM »

A little while ago I found Art Stoyles on Youtube.He has the most unique style of any Newfie accordionist that I've heard.

This article about Art, http://www.nlfolk.com/bsidearch/jul03/folkus.html, confirms the impression I had of a Portuguese influence in his playing
