Ellen YUST loves music!
Accordion and Scandinavian/American music - that's what Ellen loves and she continues carrying on the old traditions through musical appearances in the New York Tri-State, New England, Pennsylvania, Maryland areas!  

Ellen comes from a strong Scandinavian  background.  A hands-on dedicated 2nd generation Swedish-Americanl, Ellen "The Swedish Meatball" can be seen at just about every IKEA special event!  You'll see her strolling the grounds of vairous events & festivals with her little squeezebox bringing smiles to everyone she encounters. 












​Scandinavian Stomping Grounds | Bay Ridge - Brooklyn!  
That's where Ellen lives! It's the old Scandinavian community of Brooklyn (also known as Old Yellow Hook). In addition to playing music, Ellen also carries on the old tradition of brewing gallons of homemade glögg every Christmas/Winter as she follows in the footsteps and the recipe of her Stockholm-born mother (Maudie)!  SKÅL!

It's true ... Accordion music is in demand ! 
And, The Swedish Meatballs love to roll around towns sqweezing & pleasing!  Ellen, her squeezebox, and the band happily performs for many organizations where accordion music is longed for!   Sqweezing & pleasing events include:
