In October of last year, Zydeco Crossroads toured Martin Accordions in Scott, Louisiana. The family-owned business has been manufacturing and repairing accordions for thirty years, led by “Junior” Martin, his son Anthony and daughter Penny.
In this behind-the-scenes video of the shop Anthony walks us around the showroom, explaining the differences in accordion styles and pointing out the unique features of the Martin accordion. In the workshop we see how detailed the process of making an accordion is and Anthony tells us what makes him so proud of their product.
