Popular Accordion Busker Gifted New Accordion by Giansandro Breccia of Pasco Italia - Italy/Ireland

Tom McNamara
Giansandro BrecciaLimerick Leader Newspaper reporter Nick Rabbitts, in Limerick, Ireland, included an online item recently about popular local busker Tom McNamara playing the accordion in one of his regular spots in the city centre.

“For decades, Tom McNamara, who is 84, has played music across the city. But inevitably, his squeeze-box has suffered a bit of wear and tear in that time. One of his neighbours highlighted to the Limerick Leader last month that the musician needs a new instrument.

Giansandro Breccia, President of Pasco Italia (picture left), which is based in Castelfidardo in central-eastern Italy, said he wanted to donate a brand new instrument to Tom.”

Speaking to the Limerick newspaper, he said: “I read your story about Tom on the internet. Some Irish friends of mine confirmed to me that he is very popular not only in Limerick, but all across Ireland. My idea came immediately, why not [donate]?

“I’m 60 years old, and I have passed my life in the music business. I know for any musician, his instrument is like a child. So I understand Tom is looking for a new baby after a long time,” added the company’s President.
