Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-08-21: Teapot in the Tuba and Friends

August 12, 2021
AccNoir 2021-08-11

It’s hard to know how the pandemic chips are going to fall on a month to month basis. Last summer the numbers were relatively down and there was a window of opportunity for life to be lived in some degree of normalcy, where by “normalcy” we mean “you can enjoy your first live music performances in months, but the new venues are open-air ones in public parks.” We’re in that window for 2021 currently, though what with the Delta variant surging locally in wake of the sunsetting of our mask mandate, it looks like it may be quite a smaller window than it was last summer. Maclean Park Music, made famous in our streaming Accordion Noir Festival last year, is again presenting performances squeezy and otherwise. (Indeed, in shortly under a month, they will be presenting well-ventilated socially-distanced parkly live incarnation of our Accordion Noir Festival! Stay tuned!) This weekend, one of the performances they are presenting is Teapot in the Tuba, featuring the accordion stylings of Katheryn “Salmon Avalanche” Petersen, who presided over our festival’s golden age. Portions of this week’s episode are informed by and dedicated to other musicians who are finding ways to make live performance flourish in the midst of this culturally devastating dumpster fire of an era in which we find ourselves barely ekeing by. But, as ham enthusiasts will testify — however bad things get, radio continues on! If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can enjoy listening to this as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
