Accordion Noir radio playlist 2019-10-09: Cats Under the Stars (for Mr. Bones)

October 9, 2019
AccNoir-2019_10_09
Here’s a pic swiped from internet-land that honestly isn’t Mr. Bones. But for gosh sakes, don’t get cat hair in your accordion case!

(Rowan adds: doing so will ensure that every time your instrument visits the residence of a cat, it will become the focal point of a great deal of territorial scrutiny.)

Every month it seems like a holdout from the Golden Age of the accordion finally shakes their last bellow and passes on; we have no shortage of opportunities for memorial episodes. But this week was different, a death in the family:

Ten years ago, the Creaking Planks played a gig at the afterparty bar of the Fringe Festival, at which we met a saw player who had composed music for Meerkat Manor, visiting from Seattle.  One thing led to another, and shortly thereafter, there she was, guesting on episode 146 of our weekly accordion radio program.  October 2009 was a good month for live musical guests, they represented every week of that month!  At its original online home, this recording logged some 3250 listens, and going forward you can enjoy listening to it courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
