HISTORY OF THE ACCORDION IN DENMARK

It seems as though Denmark has produced fewer accordion players than its neighbour countries like Germany, Sweden, Norway and Poland.

The two most famous pioneers are Ernst Borgstrom and Heimar Gellin, who played together for a long time, especially in Northern Europe. They were very well known, and played for several monarchs.

Other well known figures were Mogens Ellegaard (1935-1999) and Kurt Larsen. Lars Dyremose (1932-2006) is the most famous variety player from Denmark.
