Halifax

synonym for "concertina player"

Recommended Posts

I'm writing a spoof on a western song. It seems like there are lots of casual terms for guitar players (picker, axeman), but I can't think of one for a concertina player. Anybody?

Thanks,

Christine

Squeezer wins! Although Hexman is pretty good, too. Thanks, both!

Perhaps "wheezer" or "hexagonist"?

The scientific term would be "Sonopneumatic." I challenge Halifax to work THAT one into a cowboy song... :D

RAc, you are speaking my language. Challenge accepted.

So someone who plays the ol' Anglo-Celtic Air Compressor would be Sonopneumaticist? 

 

I like it! Sounds very mysterious, very scientific, almost evil, steampunk at the very least!

Bellows driver.  Button puncher.  (for the cowboy theme)

He fingers and squeezes,

The ladies he pleases

He smiles as he plays them his song

When his instrument's short they don't give him a thought

But  you should hear them gasp when it's long
