Vanishing Keys, The


Many of my fellow chronic misplacers of keys can relate to the above title. What a great name for a great tune! It is played here in grand style by its composer Richard Dwyer in another excerpt from his solo CD In a Creative Mood. Richie's wonderful playing of this happy reel on the accordion brings a smile to my face and lifts my heart along the way.
