Accordion Noir 2019-05-15: Something On The Air


Tonight’s episode is our standard heady melange of round-the-world squeezebox styles (just tick off the boxes — Finland, Puerto Rico by way of New York, Montreal, the Dominican Republic) plus a couple of relevant items Bruce simply couldn’t wait another week without sharing — a piece celebrating the anniversary of the birth of 1930s French/Belgian button accordion virtuoso Gus Viseur, plus an initial tune from Hey Wow!, fantastically demonstrating an accordion path not travelled by western popular culture.  You’ll be hearing more out of them as we approach their album release, but in the meantime, you can hear this week’s episode online courtesy of the Internet Archive — and peruse the contents of its playlist below:

* Maria Kalaniemi / Musiikkia Näytelmään – Nibe – Niskavuoren Nuori Emäntä (2004) – Finland – music for theatre performance, includes new compositions plus three pieces from older albums.
