Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-09-08: Noir Fest Preview, Hurricanes and Earthquakes

Ana Bon-Bon, the Hot Water Quintet, and, more this Saturday afternoon at Maclean Park!

Greetings, friends! We’ve been keeping it low-key, to suppress attendance (these are strange times!), but we do want to give everyone a chance to catch… the 14th annual Accordion Noir Festival! In the interest of public health, it’s being conducted outdoors, as part of the Maclean Park Music series, the afternoon of Saturday, September 11th, from 2-5 pm! (The 14th annual Accordion Noir Festival is presented with support from SoundON, Creative BC, and the Province of British Columbia.) And this week’s episode of our radio program celebrates this well-ventilated, socially-distanced by-donation gathering, featuring last year’s fest kicker-off Ana Bon-Bon and what just might be the debut performance of the Hot Water Quintet! (All that, plus a somewhat predictable, if exceptional, unnamed guest.) This episode of our program looks into all that, plus Bruce shares the spotlight on hurricane and earthquake relief fundraising, through music! If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can enjoy listening to this episode as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

(But first — Earthquake and Hurricane fundraisers:)

Haitian band Lakou Mizik: recommends FOKAL’s efforts because they are distributing funds directly to LOCAL GRASSROOTS organizations – if you can contribute please go to:

Lost Bayou Ramblers is doing fundraising for folks who lost houses in hurricane Ida:
Also support their local community organizing:

Here’s the playlist, for real:

Thanks for reading us here (and hopefully listening to us, there), but if you find you want more, you can always keep up with us on Twitter (@AccordionNoir and @AccordionBruce), Instagram (@AccordionNoirFest), and Facebook at Accordion Noir fansthe Accordion Noir Festival (taking place this Saturday, Sept 11th, at Maclean Park!), and the Vancouver Squeezebox Circle (on this Friday night at Strathcona Park!) Cheers & squeeze on!
