Accordionist

Although Eric’s parents met at their piano lesson, it is perhaps his accordion playing that runs deepest in his blood, for his father is an accomplished accordionist of Gaullic descent. Eric can play in a variety of styles including the beautiful “Musette” French and Italian styles, as well as styles native to the Balkan region (his special love is Bulgarian accordion). Eric is also fluent in the arabic genre and owns a quarter-tone tuned accordion. He plays polkas too, of course, and American style Jazz and Blues but it is his firm belief that the state of accordion awareness in the United States, reminds one of that old metaphor about the iceberg. When it comes to style we’ve only accessed the tip. He invites you to delve deeper into the accordion realm and will be happy to share his long years of study and knowledge of this beautiful instrument with you by playing beautiful music on an extraordinary instrument!
