Over the Waves

That little red accordion I play was once owned by my uncle who sadly passed away in 2003. I inherited his accordions, and that was when I started learning to play.

My uncle Melvern Cousins was a remarkable man. A printer by trade, he had wide interests and taught himself many skills including cycling, photography, music, astronomy, sailing and archery. You see him here racing in a hill-climb in England during the 1960s. This tune was one of his favourites and he used to play it on this accordion. I hope you enjoy my interpretation.
