Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-09-05: Noir Fest XI preview

AccNoir 2018-09-05

Here it is, this week’s episode of Accordion Noir radio is basically our very last opportunity to promote the 11th annual Accordion Noir Festival before it’s basically at the doorstep.  Hopefully next week we can feature some of its performers live on the air!  Unfortunately, the radio station will be down for maintenance during our regular time slot this week.  Fortunately, we had the opportunity to pre-record an episode to air in its place.  This is it!  We sat on my sofa this afternoon passing Bruce’s phone back and forth recording voice memos announcing the songs: the future is here, your radio studio looks like my living room.  (Ideally, with fewer barking dogs.)

Here in this episode you can hear a tune from just about every act scheduled to perform during our festival (excepting Illiteratty, our apologies, we just ran out of room!, and the Legion of Flying Monkeys Horn Orchestra, who you really need to experience live to understand anyway.)  If you haven’t bought your tickets yet (please buy advance tickets!), perhaps these performances will prove sufficiently compelling to move you to open your wallets.  Follow this link to get an earful!  And to help keep track of what you’re hearing, please find attached the episode’s playlist:
