Accordion Noir radio playlist 2017-10-04: Bellowing with Bellow Wing

October 5, 2017


Sam Reeve is a name to keep your ears open for, an up and comer in the local arts organizing community. Not only did she hook us up with Instagram (going on like a house on fire!) and our Car Free Main Street stage, but she’s been networking extensively with a local accordion community divided from us by a thin, invisible, intangible line: the 49th parallel. Do they listen to Accordion Noir Radio in Bellingham, Washington? I’m pretty sure that our radio signals reach there, just across the border, but they may have no need for us there — as it seems they have a bustling, nay thriving alt-squeezebox scene in the area. Tonight we touch base with Bellow Wing, a Bellingham musician whose Kickstarter campaign to fund the pressing of her latest album is in its final hours. Will you hear something in this episode to move you to open your heart and your wallet, pushing her over the top? We hope so!

You can download an MP3 of last night’s episode from the Internet Archive, and to help you better enjoy what you’re hearing, here’s the episode’s playlist:
