Accordion Noir radio playlist 2011-10-26: Hurdy-Gurdy Noir (part 2) with David Burda

October 27, 2021


I don’t know what was in the water ten years ago, but we must have been really reconsidering the long-term viability of the accordion thing (spoiler: in the long term, it seems have been really rather viable) since we followed up our hour of Hurdy-Gurdy Noir with … an unprecedented SECOND episode dedicated to that fellow traveler underdog instrument, featuring a second local expert guest, David Burda (who Rowan met while they were both busking on Granville Island), demonstrating just what could be done with his extraordinary instrument.  Here it is, episode 256 of CFRO’s weekly Hurd– Accordion Noir radio program.  At its original online home, it logged some 5239 listens, but you insatiable hurdy gurdy enthusiasts can glut yourselves, enjoying it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
