Had a friend in high school who played the accordion.  It's amazing how one can sound when it's not being used for a polka.

I have a buddy that plays zydeco...anyone saying accordion isn't cool is just objectively wrong, LOL.

It is indeed possible, as Eluveitie and Korpiklaani manage to pull it off quite well.

If Flaco Jimenez is asked to play with Emmylou Harris and her band, that makes him the front runner for me.

Tim Minchin doing pretty much anything isn't cool... it's just someone screaming out 'hey everyone, aren't I quirky?!'  I'm glad this thread has so much awesome accordion music to clean that crap from my brain.
