A Squeezebox and a Fiddle

Bohemian Nights is a Melbourne duo featuring violinist Ernie Gruner and accordionist/singer Phil Carroll.

There are tangos and tarantellas, polkas and klezmers (Jewish dance tunes). I particularly love the moodiness of this music; it can quickly descend from joyous celebration into a gloomy lament. Also, I want to learn the accordion.

Here is a sample of Bohemian Nights, dancing in a circle is optional:
