Re: Re: Re: Re: Poullard accordions

Mr. Poullard,
I am a fan of your playing and I feel that your brother was one of the best accordion players ever. Congratulations on making those beautiful accordions. Does that make you the only Creole making the instrument or do you know of others past or present?

Joe Moran is in an apprentice program right now in the New Orleans area.

According to Mark Savoy and Larry Miller I am the first Creole person to build the Cajun Style accordion. There may be others who are learning, but at this point I do not know of any. Thanks!

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Poullard accordions

I wonder if I'm the first cracker to try to build one?

Hey, Ed,

They're SWEET lookin' instruments.
As you know, I've seen the Red Bb up close and it's a BEAUT !..great workmanship....'top shelf' as they say !


Seems I'll need to spread the word over here in Australia about the Poullards and the Bon Temps availablity.....and, that Scheme designed to foster Craftsmanship and Technical Expertise is impressive. Someone needs a pat on the back for initiating it.

Regards, Darryl and Jan ( yep, we got back after 34 hours of travel, door to door New Orleans - Australia )..jet lagged to blazes !! Jan didn't appreciate me firing up the Bb the next morning...had to play soft !! LOL.),.....thanks for the opportunity to catch up and enjoy the evening at Judes.
Hi to Roland as well..take care all.
