Accordions – entertaining crowds for hundreds of years

The accordion has long been a mystery to those uninitiated with its construction and method. A reed instrument, the accordion is said to have been invented nearly two hundred years ago in 1822 in Berlin. From its German home, accordions soon made their way across Europe, with Britain said to have come across the instrument by 1831. With various innovations, the accordion has undergone a number of changes over the years and retains a loyal following.
