Found some beautiful old postcards of Auvergnat musicians and dancers.

Read the l'Accordéonaire French music blog:

Thanks Gary.

What a great resource. I've seen some of these pics before. I made some repros as a gift for a friend. I also posted some on facebook.

I keep promising to make an online collection of historical accordeon images.  :|bl

Perhaps one day, when I get a tuit - a round tuit;D
you won't get far with that attitude

Thanks for posting that link! I've been accumulating a few images of folk music and dance, with the idea of making some kind of collage from print-outs. These are really great and I've bookmarked the page.

It can be difficults to convey anything about music in still photographs. I see visitors taking photos of people playing at pub sessions, and I wonder why they bother, because mostly what they end up with is some shots of people with strange facial expressions holding instruments. Photos of singers are even worse. The presence of dancers in a photo helps a lot to give the feeling of the sound and the movement.
