Accordion Noir Festival

The accordion is back! If your Great Aunt Mabel tortured you with cheese-ball polkas; if the name "Lawrence Welk" makes your ears bleed, join the Accordion Noir Festival in celebrating the dark and edgy heart of today's accordion music. Vancouver's Russian Hall has been taken over yet again by the wildest squeezers in Canada, and accordion player and organizer Barbara Adler joined host Margaret Gallagher to tell her all about it.
