Charron Freres .. française ou italienne?



As I was walking in the city yesterday from somewhere up ahead the sounds of an accordion floated through the air. Whether you call it a concertina, a squeeze box..  or even a handklaver (Swedish) the sound of the accordion always transports me back to Montmartre.. strolling among the artists..  'non monsieur je ne veux pas un sketch of mon visage' :) Chatting I mentioned this and the lovely man went straight into something along these lines.. magic! I noticed the accordion had the name Charron Freres on it but after extensive googling I still don't know if this is a French or Italian brand, anyone know the answer to that one? How is your week going.. mine is zipping along way too speedily! Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.....p.s. did you notice.. one photo :)

  1. I have no idea myself...my dad might know. He's got an accordion himself, but it's black and white instead of colourful.

  8. I don't think I have ever seen a bright orange one? I rather like it.

  9. One photo only. I can't quite believe it! :-)

    I have absolutely no clue but why would Italians call it frères rather than fratelli?

  10. I hope people are still learning how to play these. It would be such a shame if they disappeared because no one could play them anymore. Yes, just one note from one and I think of France.

  11. No idea. This chap looks totally happy and I suspect quite flattered you photographed him.

  12. My wife's aunt died and left her an accordion, the old lady never did like me much.

  13. I dunno, either. But one does not see many accordions (by any name) these days much less one out on the city streets. Nice portrait of this gentleman. He reminds me of some folks in the big bands of the 40s.

  14. I wish I knew, though it's rather French-sounding in name! Love the singular sensation of a shot - and he looks thrilled to be posing/performing for you!:)

  15. I love the color in this. The instrument is on fire.

    My favorite is this family is the Argentine bandoneon. That's really hot.

  17. You sure are a Francophile. They make a good subject for street photography. Accordion players I mean.

  18. Grace, he really looks so happy, non? Since months we have such a very loud guy who tries to sing Irish songs in the city. He drives me nuts, how can a human being produce sounds that loud (and I should be used to that, no?!).. Can´t you send this guy over instead? He looks very likeable!

  19. I think there is something special about the accordion Grace whether Italian or French. It seems to express so many moods.

  20. Sorry, I never liked the sound of an "accordeon" as it is called in our language. It was used here for dutch folksongs I always found stupid music. So when I hear this instrument it always reminds me of that kind of music and not the french music I am afraid.

  21. Lovely photo, he looks very happy with his music!

  22. The last time I was in Paris, I heard this sound and followed it until I found a guy playing on one of the many beautiful bridges in the city. I stopped to listen and of course snapped a photo. The sound makes me think of Paris too!

  23. Great shot and story! I found more Italian websites tied to Freres Charron, but they could be French!
    PS: I think my husband is looking forward to some "warm" weather in Perth!

  24. Well...I'm not good in this game, but I guess he is Italian. However he could be a brazilian musician from South of Brazil ( Rio Grande do Sul State). :) this musical instrument is very normal there!
    He looks so nice, you got a beautiful portrait, well done!

  25. ...and a lovely photo it is too Grace- not sure what the correct language is...the language of music I guess ;-)

  26. I can't help you with an answer Grace, but oh I do love to hear the accordion played in such situations and he looks so happy with it, thank you so much for sharing this with us and for the link! Joy x

  27. This just has to be a trick question. Charron Freres? How can it not be French? Unless it was originally French and was bought by Italians who retained the name . . .

    be only one sex. Sharing the responsibility for financial security as
