Born to Squeeze: 8th Edition of Accordion Noir Festival Has Sticking Power.

Vancouver, BC. – The eighth edition of The Accordion Noir Festival extends its reach, and gains tenacity as one of Vancouver’s most unexpected, boundary-pushing professional music festivals.

A fresh lineup of international and national accordion artists this year features Wendy McNeill (Spain/Canada), Angélica Negrón and Shayna Dunkelman (New York), Kate and Rich Duo (Halifax), Ana Bonbon (London/Canada), Rattletrap Ruckus (Bellingham) and Compassion Gorilla (Victoria). Featured local talents include a new-works premier by Elliot Vaughan and Elysse Cheadle, and an album release by Geoff Berner.

Audiences will participate in the growing legacy of the festival as a presenter of alternative and contemporary accordion arts with three evening concerts and daytime community events running at The Western Front, The Wise Hall and Spartacus Books.
