Seven years ago, on the Port au Port Peninsula, a local teacher fanned a dying flame. He asked well-known accordion player Bernie Felix to offer lessons at his school. Bernie did. And revived a pleasure of the old times among the young.
At Black Duck Brook's annual music festival this past August, teacher and students united. Bernie played on stage with four of his very best...four youngsters who will make up the next generation of Port au Port players. Kids who will keep the accordion alive.
