Concertina Sighting In An '80S Canadian Cartoon

Recommended Posts

I had seen this back in the 80's, but only just re-watched it today.

A concertina makes an appearance in the latter part.

It would be great, even without the concertina!

 

Anglo players might disagree, but it's nice to see a cartoon character look like he's really playing a concertina. (They never seem to play ECs!)

Another Canada film board cartoon:

 

The Blackfly Song

 

(i suspect that the music is an accordion, but the visuals are of a concertina).

Oh yes, one of my favourite songs.

 

Anna McGarrigle is actually playing a button accordion, but what the heck.

 

Log driving used to be a profitable, and very dangerous, profession in Eastern Ontario and Quebec. I met a guy who told me that his family fortune was established by a distant forbear who drove a single log from the hinterland to Montreal where it was bought by the British navy as a mast for a ship of the line. Log drivers wouldn't lie, would they?

I don’t know... Apparently they’re not above discarding used concertinas into the river.

They're soo in the money, that they can just toss them aside without a care.
