One of the reasons for the launch of The Big Squeeze was to change people’s perception of the instrument. Most people associate it with traditional music and annoying the neighbours! We know we are biased, being lovers of all things accordion, but it may surprise you to learn that the humble accordion has been used in some of the most famous pop songs in history.
The Beatles used it in We Can Work It Out. John Lennon was an aficionado and plays the accordion throughout the entire song. In fact there are lots of historical photos with all members of the band playing our hero instrument.
