Even if you don't know the songs - with the exception of Beer Barrel - they all have only 2 or 3 chords - you can play along on chords only.
You can bring a chair or stool or music stand if you like. Then - you can stay for the evening competition and concert.
Thank you all for participating - we have had a ball in the past - and hope to surpass last year's number of over 35 accordion players.
