Accordion Noir radio playlist 2018-09-12: Double Fest Guests, Double Fest Episode!

September 13, 2018


The 11th annual Accordion Noir Festival is this week!  In fact, it kicks off tonight with a fest pre-show at the “Echoes and Ripples” art opening… in addition to visual art on musical themes, it will include accordionic performances by four different acts… two of whom joined us on the radio last night!  We kicked things off with a set of standards by the Squeezebox Circle Orchestra, the culmination of all our monthly get-togethers the first Thursday of every month at the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle (performing their second gig that day!), and then proceeded to follow them with a set by Teapot in the Tuba, the current main project of Accordion Noir Fest alumna Katheryn Petersen.  (We then proceeded to play canned tunes from acts expected to be performing at our fest this weekend, as we unexpectedly found we had an additional hour of airtime to cover and made the best of the situation!)

You can find the mega two-hour-long recording available online at the Internet Archive (you have enough time to listen to it about four and a half times before tonight’s festivities begin), and if it helps you to keep track of who’s playing what, here’s its playlist:
