GUEST,Len Wallace What are other names for the accordion? (110* d) What are other names for the accordion? 15 Nov 01

Hi Friends,

Okay, this sounds like a perfect opener for a joke about accordions, but I am searching for other names for "accordion".

Leadbelly called it a "windjammer".

South African workers often called it "squashbox".

I recently heard it refered to as something else by northern native people.

The "poor man's piano" and "Stomach Steinway" have also been used.

If anyone knows of any such alternative names, please let me know.

Many thanks,
