Celebrity Interviews

"Celebrity Interviews" features interviews with famous accordionists and accordion personalities in an informative and very interesting way.

These interviews will be kept permanently on site to form a unique part of the history of the accordion. The original moderator was Wallace Liggett, a well known New Zealand accordionist and author of the book "The History of the Accordion In New Zealand", however now our interviews are conducted by well known accordionists in several countries around the world.
