gerardo1000 Posted April 26, 2011 Share Posted April 26, 2011 I play a bit of accordion and am a beginner concertina player (well, I should say learner, for now), so I looked online and put on my "favorites" the web addresses of the two most popular accordion and concertina forums: concertina.net and accordionist.org. Now here is the weird story: on paper, it looks like the accordion, even if not as popular as in the past, is far more popular today than the concertina. For example, there are many more online stores that sell accordions than concertinas. Here in Michigan (another example) there is one of the biggest accordion stores in the United States (Castiglione accordions in Warren) while it is almost impossible to find a store that has a concertina. But... after having followed the forum Accordionist.org for weeks, I noticed that the forum is almost dormant,i.e. deserted by members.I The current threads are the same as weeks ago, with rare new answers from the Forum members. And, unless I am wrong,this is the only real accordion forum that I have been able to discover. While Concertina.net is very alive and well: every day there are new threads, and members contribute with tons of answers and opinions. A bit like Chiff and Fipple for flutes and whistles, or the Acoustic guitar Forum for acoustic guitars. How do you explain that ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
