About the Chemnitzer Concertina

Here's an informative little video about this delightful, if obscure, squeezebox. It may be mostly used for polkas but here's a guy playing a samba.

My favourite band that used the chemnitzer concertina was Scrubby and the Dynatones. Here they are back in the bad old days of the 80s. And here they are again, much later, playing Zosia, one of my favourite polkas - sung in Polish at a reunion show. I confess I've posted this video before but it is just so perfect, I had to post it again.
