Austrian Folk Music Performed on the Button-Box, a Music Instrument from Styria

The Steirische Button-Box or Steirische Harmonika is a kind of accordeon from the austrian region of Styria. It has buttons for both hands instead of a combination of buttons and a small keyboard as the traditional accordeons have. The music played with this music instrument is mostly austrian folk music which is still alive in this quiet region at the south of the Alpen mountains. The instrument is also played in other countries in this region. Remember that european countries are smaller than the states in northern america …
With this instrument it is relatively easy for a single person to play for entertainment and dancing of a bigger crowd. The bass notes sound full.
