Re: Harrison Fontenot

I do. Harrison was a family friend and my dad played guitar with him a lot. He was my main inspiration to both play and build. His songs are mostly pretty easy to play, and a lot of fun, and most of the first songs I learned to play were from recordings he gave me. I sure do miss ole Harree-sone.

I have the accordion Harrison Fontenot made for Mike Tate, his brand was Imperial and he engraved Mike's name on the bottom. If I could figure out how to post a picture of it I would.
