Re: The Lost Style Makes A Comeback

Curious about the "Bohemian" accordion player.. What was the source of that ?

For reference a brief description of Bohemia:

https://www.britannica.com/place/Bohemia

My Great Grand Father emigrated from Salnau, Bohemia, Austria (the northwestern part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.. and later a part of the Czech Republic) to America in 1883. He was a Bohemian as was his wife who also emigrated to the US and lived 18 miles from my GGF in Bohemia but they met and married in the US. Many Bohemians were German speaking, as were my GGF and GGM.

If you are referring to a "lifestyle" as exhibited in the late 19th Century and the early 20th Century, especially in Paris... this is "bohemian" with a lower case "b".

FYI

I have my GGFs 2 1/2 row 6 bass D/G accordeon..He played for parties, dances, and social clubs and family affairs according to my mother. He did not wear a backward ball cap when he played. He wore a formal black suit and a large black brimmed hat, except inside a building where he removed it in respect for others as was custom and convention.
