Five comments

An album made in 2001 by English accordionist Karen Tweed and Norwegian pianist Timo Alakotila (plus various other instruments ranging from flugelhorn to string quartet). While normally I’m not a huge fan of accordions, I love this album - the playing is sensitive and the arrangements interesting and varied. It contains a mix of Scandanavian, Irish, Scottish and English tunes. Great stuff.

Correction

Hi, just needed to point out that Timo Alakotila is Finnish, and we’re proud to have him that way 🙂

Would be nice if Tweed’s name were spelled correctly in the details.

Whoops. Thanks. I’ll fix that.
