Reviews

"A rollicking journey that enhances the joy of the instrument I hold in my arms every night!"
Jenny Conlee, The Decemberists

"Bruce Triggs gives the accordion the scholarship it deserves, demonstrating its overlooked, yet important impact on our music history."
Krist Novoselic, Giants in the Trees, Nirvana

"Given the general, pretty much universal level of mockery of the accordion, this a book that I never thought I'd see written. Well done."
James Fearnley, The Pogues

"Accordion Revolution is an inspirational guide to the accordion's deep and shadowy past."
Skyler Fell, Accordion Apocalypse Repair Shop

"A worthy redemption for an instrument that has always been far more beautiful and complicated than its reputation might have you believe."
Brooke Binkowski, accordionist and award-winning media fact-checker

"I give it five out of five bellows-shakes."
Renée de la Prade, producer, Accordion Babes Pin-Up calendar
