I’m sort of new to this site, so I realise that this question may have been done to death, but I’ve always been facinated by how peoples tastes change over time.
I’ve been playing the music for about 8 years, and in the begining it was all kevin burke, martin hayes and Matt Molloy. I couldn’t STAND piano backing and thought accordians were the epitome of crapness.
and PIANO accordians, well, I didn’t even consider them an instrument..
Now Kevin Burke makes me feel ill, martin hayes slightly silly, I LOVE the sound of the piano (Charlie Lennon, Brian McGrath, sigh…) and we just had the best week of tunes were i live BECAUSE we had a great piano accordian player passing through… And even after all this changing of tastes, Matt Molloy is still THE man IMO.
Anyway, Howzabout you fellas?
