Waltz for Polle (Wim Poesen)

Just found this video with a soprano concertina in a charming and simple tune, a classic in the folk trad scene:

Wals voor Polle (Waltz for Polle, composition by Wim Poesen)

There are many videos of this popular tune including this one by the Polle it was composed for where he plays it on his Bechonnet Musette with Brass quintet accompaniment.

I have met and spoken Polle Ranson twice, a very kind man and a passionate folk musician.

I wanted to post this video because of the use of a soprano english concertina. I hope this person will post more videos with his soprano english concertina. This kind of online videos is hard to find.
