This reel by Abbie Andrews of Niagara Falls, Ontario became an instant hit when it was recorded by Andrews and was soon covered by Don Messer, Ned Landry and many others. The accordion player in this recording may well be a young Walter Ostanek.
There is a link below to a good article about "Abbie Andrews and The Ranch Boys" and another 1950s band from the Niagara Peninsula, "The Lincoln County Peach Pickers".
