Turns out, accordions are much more than just an annoying instrument used for polka. In fact, the Accordion Noir group argues that it is one of the most underrated instruments in North America. Just give it a chance, why dontcha!?
Since 2008, Accordion Noir has been running a festival to build interest in accordion music by throwing a fun, wild and unique musical event that attracts people from all walks of life. Lovers, haters, and those who haven’t formed any opinion whatsoever towards the accordion are invited to celebrate the instrument affectionately known as the squeeze box.
The Accordion Noir Festival is coming back from September 10 – 13 for its 8th annual year with a mix of cabaret, kitchen parties, and – of course – accordion performances.
