The Upper Valley Museum is happy to display some 30 pieces, primarily diatonic, button-style accordions from the 40 year private collection of Thomas Tilton who plays with “Alpen Folk”, a group that has entertained at the Gazebo and various places in Leavenworth through the years.
The Museum will display Thomas’ Collection in the exhibit room through the month of June 2016. A demonstration of some of these accordions will be held, Saturday, June 18th at 11 am in the Sunroom at the Upper Valley Museum, 347 Division St, Leavenworth, WA. Thomas takes great pleasure in demonstrating the instruments and talking about their place in history. Come and view this fine old collection.
