Books will be available for purchase along with the author's autograph before and after the mini-concert.
"Accordion Stories from the Heart" provides a wealth of stunning photos and loving insights into the exceptional, and sometimes tear-evoking stories involving many featured accordions from around the world. In his book, Mr. Ramunni tenderly describes the extraordinary people who played and listened to this beautiful musical instrument over the past two centuries.
The 143-page hard-covered "Accordion Stories from the Heart" fills the reader's heart with warm and fascinating accordion-related stories. The book features more than 70 photos of spectacularly decorated hand-built accordions of multiple colors and ivory-like keyboards. They originate from many countries around the world and date back as far as 1829.
Mr. Ramunni's privately-operated New England Accordion Connection & Museum Company showcases over 600+ stunningly beautiful accordions plus a studio where he repairs, buys and sells remarkable hand-crafted accordions. He also offers for sale over 10,000 pieces of sheet music and accordion-related books.
