Accordion Noir radio playlist 2009-07-10: Folk Fest ’09 Preview

July 22, 2019


From ten years ago, here’s episode 136 of Accordion Noir radio, a preview of acts to be appearing at that year’s installment of the Vancouver Folk Music Festival.  It was a good one!  (The episode?  The Festival? How about… both!) Bruce was just at the fest this week, doing interviews, and of course we previewed this year’s fest on last week’s episode, so … as you can see, this tradition has some continuity behind it.  At its original online home, it achieved a total of some 11036 listens, and as per usual we hope that eventually it will, at its new online home at the Internet Archive where you can listen to it today and (hopefully) forever), reach or surpass that total.  Here’s its playlist:
