Festival season is upon us this weekend, and with it two major events in our annual calendar of live local accordion performances: the long-running Vancouver Folk Music Festival, bringing with it niche regional accordion performers from remote corners of the globe, and the somewhat newer Victoria Accordion Festival, with a somewhat tighter focus on our area of interest.  Last night’s episode shared with our listeners highlights of squeezebox performances at those two festivals our local listeners will soon have a chance to enjoy in person!  You can listen to it as a digital audio stream, or a permanent MP3 download.  And to help keep a handle on what you’re listening to and at which festival they can be heard… here’s the show’s playlist!
