Thanks to everyone who invented a new name for the accordion! Andrea McColeman won two tickets for Alexander Sevastian last Saturday by giving the accordion a new name: the Stomach Steinway.

The show itself was not hard to stomach, it was awesome! That man's hands were faster than hummingbirds' wings and with his cheeky smiles–he knew it. A great performer!

Some of our favourite new names for the accordion that were submitted are

• drückenwaffe (loosely translated, in english :"push weapon")

• Ostanek's Melodious Effluvium

• a musical smile through all its white and black teeth

Keep in touch for the next musical contest!
