Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-07-27: Arts Wells and Worlds

AccNoir 2011-07-27


From ten years ago, here’s episode 242 of CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s weekly hour-long Accordion Noir radio program.  This one appears to have been a promotion of the splendid annual ArtsWells Festival of All Things Art, up in Wells/Barkerville in the interior of British Columbia, traditionally taking place during the BC Day long weekend.  Like summer camp for musicians, this fest also had a knack for featuring a wide array of accordionic talent from around the province and Western Canada — forming the chewy nougat core of this episode’s programming.  At its original online home, this episode logged some 5252 listens, but you can continue enjoying this recording as digital audio any time courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
