Maybe it is mostly old people who listen to accordion today in Sweden, because they remember the old days. They think it’s sprightly and swinging music. They say: ”Accordion music is rarely played on the radio nowadays”. The majority wants to listen to pop music or classical music. A common opinion is to say that it’s simple and non academic music. Maybe it is due to the fact that Calle Jularbo’s people were travellers. And also because blue collar workers and farmers played accordion long time ago.
