Armonia De Luxe Piano Accordion, with Octave bass and Treble stops. (case)

This accordion was previously owned by Joan Alexis. Joan Alexis was born in the 1920s to a theatrical family who toured around the world playing to audiences in major venues. Joan followed on in their tradition and, still only a teenager, was an accomplished accordion player. She joined her parents' act that was then called the Isolde Trio. When older, she became a solo performer, mostly working in London's West End including the London Palladium. Joan also sang and danced, appearing in numerous pantomimes as principal boy. Being so talented and very beautiful she was always in great demand and worked in various revues on the west end stage with many famous names of the time including Lesley Henson and Stanley Holloway. In 1951, Joan married Carroll Gibbons, the American composer, pianist, conductor and broadcaster. Carroll was very well known and it was his orchestra that was resident at the London's Savoy Hotel in the 1930s, '40s and early '50s. The orchestra was called The Savoy Orpheans. One of Carroll's best-loved compositions was Garden in the Rain. Carroll died in the late 1950s and it was then that Joan picked up the accordion again and played in France and various cabaret venues in London. She began to compose music for various shows and recordings and wrote music for 'Windfalls', a children's animation series on ITV. Joan died in 2009. She had owned three previous accordions, two of which were given away, with this one the last remaining.
