Well worth exploring her other videos on YouTube. There are some lovely tunes which sound great on the Pokerwork.

Proof that it is not the accordeon, but the player.

As much as I appreciate Cutting's playing... I'd rather watch her.

Very nice.  I learned the Valse des Chevaux this morning.  I'll have to learn some of the others too.  (:)

Pretty sure it is G/C, and from the bright gold finish it is Chinese built.

There is a lot of really subtle bellows control in her playing which she is using to shape individual notes, especially the longer notes.

Thanks, I was afraid it was G/C!  Yes, really lovely playing.

From the rubber bands sticking out of the top I would say it has lost a couple of springs already.

Really nice tunes well played, addictive listening. Being a complete newbie can these tunes be played on a D/G box i.e. is the treble/bass relationship the same?

A perfect example of how the player is more important than the expense of the box.
