Quick Links: Post-Holiday Edition

No unifying theme for today’s Quick Links, except that they’ve all been kicking around my inbox since the holidays…

  • Player/Repairman Tom Bruno Passes Away
    Sad news about the sudden death of Tom Bruno, owner of Bruno Accordions in New Kensington, PA. Not only was Bruno an expert craftsman and one of the nation’s finest accordion repairmen, but he was a fantastic player, renowned for his renditions of Charles Magnante’s works. He was just 36 years old.
  • From Berlin’s Hole of Forgottenness, a Spell of Songs
    The curious story of Bruno S., who flirted with German movie stardom in the early 1970s and is now playing accordion on the streets of Berlin. (Don’t miss the video on the article’s second page.)
  • Spektrum Lab: “Outside the Box”
    “Put away any pre-conceived notions of what an accordion album might sound like.” Samples and loops abound on a unique album from Spektrum Lab that could easily have been titled “MIDI Accordions Gone Wild.”

And one quick Let’s Polka note — after making some behind-the-scenes improvements to our accordion events calendar, we now have over 250 events posted nationwide and the list is growing daily. Have an accordion concert, festival, or gathering to add? Want your band’s gigs listed? Let us know!


  1. Thanks so much for the great work with the calendar!

    I was so pleased–and surprised–to discover you had even listed next month’s book launch/Sauce Piquante show at Ashkenaz for my new memoir “Accordion Dreams: A Journey into Cajun and Creole Music.”

    Thanks again!

  2. I used to live in Sarver, just ten minutes or so from New Kensington. I heard through a friend that Mr. Bruno passed away. I had no idea he was so prominent. It’s such an awful thing. :(
