AccNoir 2016-10-05


As the seasons turn and the months pass (speaking of which — our monthly first-Thursday Squeezebox Circle get-together is tonight!), so too do the weeks fly by — and with them, weekly episodes of the Accordion Noir Radio program, rapidly headed toward our 10-year milestone of weekly radio appearances! We took to the airwaves last night and you can download a recording of the episode thanks to the Internet Archive!  (By the by, our parent radio station, CFRO Co-Op Community Radio — their Fall member drive is underway, and you can help to support us by taking out or renewing a station membership! Click here for details!) And to help you understand just what it is you’re enjoying so much, here’s a complete playlist of everything you can hear in this episode:

* Iry Lejeune – La Valse de pont d’Amour (Love Bridge Waltz) – Cajun’s Greatest; The Definitive Collection (1948) – Louisiana, USA – (The “Cajun accordionists’ national anthem.”) according to Carl Lindahl, “Accordion Music & Lifestyle on the Cajun Frontier,” in Accordions, Fiddles, Two Step & Swing A Cajun Music Reader, pg 89.

All right, that’s more than enough squeezebox for one more week. But if you just can’t get enough, you can find us at what could be charitably described as greater frequency at @AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce on Twitter, at our Instagram account @Accordionnoirfest, and over at our Facebook groups for Accordion Noir fans, the Accordion Noir Festival, and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle

(And don’t forget == we still are hoping for your cover versions of our theme song for our 10th anniversary in December!)
