Ill: Van Der Sterre, Johanna http://klez4kids.blogspot.com/

SOMETHING SPECIAL FOR ME: by Vera Williams is most known for her Rosa Trilogy. The first of these books was A Chair for My Mother. The story is about a young Hispanic girl named Rosa who lives with her mother, a waitress, and her grandmother. Throughout the story they save their money to buy a comfortable arm chair for Rosa’s overworked mother. The second book in the Rosa Trilogy is Something Special for Me. In this story the women are saving money again, but this time it is for Rosa’s birthday present. Rosa decides to buy an accordion so that her present will bring joy to the family, not just herself. The final book about Rosa was Music, Music for Everyone. In this story, Rosa and her friends raise money for her grandmother’s medical care by playing in a band. Forth book: A Chair for Always, 2009.

THE GIFT: A HANUKKAH STORY, by Aliana Brodmann
Hanukkah money burning a hole in your pocket? Aliana Brodmann’s The Gift: A Hanukkah Story is a children’s picture book about a young girl who receives her Hanukkah gelt (money) from her father, but can’t decide how to spend it. After going from store to store looking at hats, dolls, and even kittens, she hears beautiful music played by an accordion player on the street. She decides to give the money to him and, in return, he teaches her to play the accordion.
It’s a sweet story, set in post-war Germany and based on the author’s memories of her childhood there. The book was originally published in 1993 and may be hard to find, so check your local library first.

TONY LOVED TO LEARN: by Sharon Kay Riddle, Nancy Ida Sanders, Megan Mendoza Kid’s picture book about Anthony Galla-Rini! How cool is that! Sweet look back into the “Golden Age of the Accordion,” with Harpo Marx cameo!
http://www.oliveleafpublications.com/default.asp?secA=welcome

GRANDPA’S MAGICAL ACCORDION: written by Jessica Cherie Errico and illustrated by Brenda Star Pretty picture book with CD narration and music in styles from around the world. http://www.3partharmony.org/

THE OCTONAUTS AND THE SEA OF SHADE : by Meomi
Accordion playing undersea adventure polar bear and stuff. Pretty neat.
http://www.letspolka.com/2007/12/the-octonauts/#comments

THE ANGEL AND THE CHILD: by Dominique Falda A lovely picture book about an angel that comes down to earth and plays the concertina! “Angels are eternal. And eternity is a very long time – much longer than a little tune played on a concertina.” “I have time to learn music. With a lesson every hundred years or so, I can be musical in no time. The little bird can accompany me, and have a laugh now and then, because it will take me forever to learn to play the concertina.” Good book, sweet pictures, and a squeezebox. http://www.alibris.com/search/books/isbn/1558584889

And finally:

SIGHTS: by Susanna Vance
From the great Lets Polka blog: http://www.letspolka.com/2008/01/book-review-sights-by-susanna-vance/
There aren’t many young adult novels involving accordions, but Bruce Triggs found one. Bruce — co-host of the excellent Accordion Noir radio show in Vancouver — penned this book review for Let’s Polka:

I picked up Susanna Vance’s book Sights, because the (hardback) cover is of a girl playing accordion. I was literally on my way to the Vancouver (BC) Accordion Circle, where I was quick to show it off.
Sights tells the story of a 13-year-old girl who’s had what’s euphemistically called a “tough” childhood, moving to a new school and making friends with some other outcasts and forming a band. She plays accordion… they rock… cool! I wanted her to be a big Johnny Grande fan (accordionist with Bill Haley and the Comets), but he isn’t mentioned.
I was really impressed with the “sound” of the narrator (whose name is Baby Girl). Without telling where she is from, she gives a really consistent rural USA sound to the book. I’ve lived a lot of places in America, and she sounded kind of Okie/Appalachian. I’m not sure where she’s from, but it’s really nice.
It has grimmer aspects than Victoria Miles’ Magnifico, the other teen book I know with accordion content. People should be aware that it deals matter-of-factly with subjects like child abuse and adolescent sexuality, but I do recommend it. (I similarly have to remember to tell people that Annie Proulx’s Accordion Crimes is kinda violent, which I overlook in the richness of it all.)
There are elements of fantasy in the story’s vision of 1950’s USA. I wouldn’t call it realistic; even the violence is rather odd. But if you’re prepared (by reading this), you should be in for a swell time.

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2020-05-06: International Accordion Day, No. 191

May 7, 2020
AccNoir 2020-05-06
Adding insult to injury…

Cinco de Mayo can be framed as a big accordion holiday (with a big asterisk) but the following day, May 6th, marks the day Cyrill Demian patented the first accordion in 1829… making it the biggest accordion holiday of them all! Naturally we celebrate it scrupulously (and have been counting down to May 6, 2029 for years, looking forward to the instrument’s bicentennial!) What that amounted to on the ground for last night’s episode of CFRO’s weekly Accordion Noir program (and did you get around to sending them in a donation for their member drive?) is another typical mix from us, of music using this amazing instrument across numerous disparate styles from far-flung reaches of the planet. All that, plus a nod to the pandemic and a late-breaking salute to the late Florian Schneider of Kraftwerk. If you haven’t already been notified by your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions, you can enjoy listening to the broadcast courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

AccNoir-2020-05-06, International Accordion Day 🎂 year 191

Linocut celebrating Emily Kastrul’s Sister Species from Minneapolis, Minnesota. 4 in stock!

Last month Bruce hitched his wagon to Bandcamp, which had an “all the proceeds go to the artists” weekend to benefit the hard working touring musicians who were no longer able to tour. They’re doing it again, so he got another program together on very short notice of well worthwhile accordionic acts selling music online there, making the theme of this week’s episode. If you like the taste we offer for free, consider going and buying their work there to help sustain them through this time of unprecedented disruption to their creative business. (And if you still have a few pennies left in your giving purse, please consider sending a little financial support to our parent radio station, CFRO Co-op Community Radio, in the closing moments of its Spring member drive!) In the meantime, if you aren’t already subscribed to our podcast on your Apple or Android devices, you can go enjoy this week’s episode of Accordion Noir Radio via the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

Accordion Noir radio playlist 2010-04-23: Jew’s Harp Noir

April 19, 2020

jewsharp

An old Accordion Noir tradition, during our parent radio station CFRO Co-Op Community Radio’s seasonal member drive fundraisers (currently underway, incidentally — you can support us with your contribution here!) is taking an episode off from accordions, who are left with a mere 50 episodes per year, to shine the spotlight on one of our fellow traveller underdog instruments.  Ukuleles, banjos, bagpipes, theremins… we’ve covered a lot of them, and sooner or later we wound up doing a special, episode 175, focusing on that little twanger the Italians call the scacciapensiere, the “jaw harp”.  At its original online home it logged some 7407 listens, but you can enjoy listening to it anytime courtesy of the Internet Archive.  Here’s its playlist:
