Welcome to Patricia Walter's Accordion Videos
I played accordion most of my life. Started in 1951 when I was 6 years old. During the 80’s and 90’s, my ex and I played as a duo known as the Good Time Two. We parted ways in 2008 and I did not play much after that.
My wonderful Iorio Accorgon weighed 29 pounds and became way to heavy for me to lift. In 2019 I decided to get a smaller accordion that I could handle. I bought a small, 14 pound Roland FR 1X. It was a nice size, but the keyboard was too small. So in 2020 I bought a larger version, Roland FR 4X Accordion. It has wonderful accordion, organ and orchestra sounds. It is a virtual accordion which uses all sampled sounds.
My friends want to hear me play the new accordion, so I started making a few videos. At this age, my friends are scattered all over the US. So through the wonderful world of the internet, I can share with them. Maybe make some new friends along the way. So I am still playing at 75 and having lots of fun with the new accordion.
I enjoy playing for small groups, nursing homes and senior centers. I play a large variety of music from big band, ballads, singalongs and for special holidays like St. Patrick’s Day.
The music I enjoy playing is featured below in my videos.
