We are all saddened by the news that Adrienne
has passed away
She will be sadly missed by all her family and many friends in the accordion world.
She travelled to attend our club when she could.
She had many achievements. One was starting the South Hampshire Accordion Club.
Many years ago she had a Strict Tempo Dance Group. Also French Mussette and Folk groups.
Adrienne also taught the accordion and ran workshops at St Audries Bay. She also played with the Crawley Accordion Orchestra.
She was a great supporter of Accordion festivals and events, often travelling great distances to help and support people wherever she could.
Adrienne was a leading figure in the accordion world respected and admired by everyone who knew her, both for her musical knowledge and her talent playing the accordion.
On behalf of the Guildford Accordion Club we offer our sincere condolences to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.

We are pleased to say that bookings for the Italy Trip are going very well. Enquiries have been made from the USA, Canada and the latest is from Australia. Should be an excellent venture.
Here at The Accordion Shop, we are pleased to announce that we have just taken a classic Hohner Gola into stock. This highly sought after, top quality accordion is widely regarded to be one of the finest accordions ever produced, and nowadays costs in excess of £31,000 to buy new.
The Hohner Gola is a full size accordion with 120 bass buttons and 41 treble keys, and features an extremely straight four voice double octave tuning, making it ideal for the classical and jazz styles of playing.
This world class accordion also boasts some of the finest hand made reeds ever produced, as well as a double cassotto chamber, which together help to create a unique rich sound, which somehow manages to be both bright and powerful and warm and mellow at the same time.
Our particular Hohner Gola is a relatively early model, having left the Hohner factory in the German town of Trossingen on the 21st of March 1960. This stunning accordion is currently undergoing a full internal and external restoration in our workshop, (including a full refurbish of the gold plating) which is being undertaken by a former Hohner workshop manager using only original Hohner parts.
This stunning example of this incredible accordion will shortly be coming into stock, following its extensive rebuild. Offers in excess of £12,500 are invited. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further details on 01344 873717 or via email at email@example.com

We are sad to have to say that our Sunningdale shop has been broken into and 40 accordions, our computers and accessories have been stolen.
Likely to have been carried out by an organised gang, they knew what instruments they wanted, taking mainly Italian accordions of high quality from makers, Cooperativa, Excelsior, Paolo Soprani, Scandalli. Etc.
Please see the full list below with links of individual details for each accordion.
We are pleased to say that we are still trading from both the Sunningdale and Rochdale shops, as we still have plenty of accordions in stock, although being stored off our premises until we add further security. So if you are looking to visit us, please contact us before hand so that we may bring to the shop the models of accordions you could be interested in.
Should you be offered any of the accordions listed, or are suspicious of any adverts you may see online etc, please contact our Sunningdale shop on 01344 873717
Please note that due to staff holidays, our Rochdale branch will be closed between the Sunday the 17th of July and Friday the 29th of July. Normal opening hours of 10.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Saturday excluding Tuesdays, will resume from Saturday the 30th of July.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact our Sunningdale shop, who are open seven days a week, with any queries or enquiries you may have. They can be reached by phone on 01344 873717 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
