Accordion & Voice Solo

My main instrument is the accordion. I do compose for the accordion, play accordion in several bands and perform solo with the accordion. The combination of accordion and voice is a main interest of mine when playing solo.

This page collects a few of the solo activities. The music mostly draws from jazz, bavarian folk and world music.
