The Troshers describe themselves as the less formal side of the Norwich Accordion Club. The group’s name comes from the Norfolk word for ‘try,’ as is ‘Keep yew a’troshin’ bor’. With a programme of sing-a-long songs and audience participation books, they entertain the crowds at clubs, groups, nursing and residential homes in the Norwich area.
But now, they are reaching out for more people to pick up an accordion and join them.
Pamela said: “We make a good sound but we do need more players – the more the merrier. The accordion is something anybody can learn to play, all you need is some knowledge of the keys on a piano.”
Instruments can be loaned to beginners, or to those wanting to teach lessons. Many of the group’s twelve members are retired but the group is open to all ages. The Troshers meet Thursdays 7pm-9pm at The Methodist Church, in Heartsease Lane, Norwich.
