I don't know if they still are, but Don Bartlett and Elma Grech used to play
(within the last 15 years) for classes in Toronto. I seem to recall Fred
Noyes(?) playing in Hamilton and another accordion player, whose name escapes
me, playing occassionally at the Bloorlea group. I even have a memorable
recollection of a 'Berkely Player' style big band playing a Trinity College
function. If I am not mistaken, this band included Bob Waugh on the 'mouthie'
