Guy Klucevsek is one of the world’s most versatile and highly-respected accordionists.

This outstanding composer, accordion virtuoso, and improvisor has been a major contributor to the accordion renaissance of the last 25 years. His music reverberates with sounds of the ballroom, the beer garden and the concert hall, fusing elements of regional accordion styles with jazz and avant-garde music.

Forget everything you thought you knew about the accordion.
