Ruthlessly pursuing the idea that the accordion is just another instrument.
The front-line of the Accordion Revolution around the world, from punk to Piazzolla. Begun in December of 2006 by Rowan Lipkovits and Bruce Triggs, we maintain our position as one of the more unlikely shows on Co-op Radio. Nevertheless, you are welcome to join us in promoting the squeezebox in all its forms in Vancouver and beyond: The Vancouver Squeezebox Circle plots monthly. The Accordion Noir Festival conspires annually. Eventually we shall prevail and the accordion will regain its proper place in the musical palette next to the saxophone, the fiddle and the pedal-steel guitar – not the most common, but a treat for connoisseurs and pleasure-seekers.
(Our highly sought-after bike stickers are on well-dressed accordion cases around the world.)
Accordion Noir Festival – Vancouver’s squeezebox spectacular, perplexing the staid and entertaining the brave since 2008. More to come every September!
