Amateur musicians have been playing the diatonic accordion in the Montmagny area for more than a century. The instrument has become synonymous with good times, entertainment and enjoyment. Although they each have their own story and influences, local accordionists all share a passion for performing.
The same passion inspires young people to play their first notes, to practise familiar tunes day in and day out, in pursuit of perfection. It also motivates older accordionists to share their knowledge and enthusiasm with the younger generation.
This all helps ensure the music remains front and centre!
