Latest Black Diamond Accordions news

For the benefit of those who are not Facebook aficionados (and we can sympathise with that position!), here are a few bits and bobs of news we've posted on our Facebok Page over the past week.

Sam Pirt of The Hut People has just recorded some fantastic tracks for us on a Black Diamond 96-bass Accordion.

We'll be posting a video on YouTube (and here) soon, so the world will know that our instruments sound as good as they look!

Meanwhile, here's Sam in action with fellow Hut Person (ex Beautiful South) Gary Hammond.



Since Greg met him at last week's Accordion International Festival, we've both been unable to stop watching videos of the incomparable young accordion virtuoso Martynas Levickis.

Here's his mesmerising solo interpretation of Winter from Vivaldi's Four Seasons:



All our photos from Accordions International can now be viewed as a slideshow on our website  (scroll down that page for more slideshows of our instruments and some photos of beautiful Mersea Island, where we live).

And finally, since our own Black Diamond Accordions t-shirts are currently but a mere twinkle in our eyes, if you're looking for a little extra Christmas present for The Accordionist In Your Life (or indeed yourself), take a look at the many amusing accordion-themed t-shirts available on Zazzle .
