The 8th Annual Accordion Noir Festival is slated for three nights and two days over the weekend of Sept 11-13, 2015. We hope you will mark that weekend off in your calendar now cause it will be a very special weekend. The Accordion Noir Society has been going through some changes in the past months and the 2015 festival will be a reflection of our decision to refine our commitment to presenting cutting edge alternative accordion arts. The coming year’s festival programming is by invitation although we encourage artists and community members to drop a line and make suggestions.
Many thanks to all who came out and participated in the Seventh Annual Accordion Noir Festival. It was a wonder-filled weekend of accordion arts and magic that exceeded everyone’s expectations. This year’s performers, crew, volunteers and audiences were truly amazing and have left us with an inspiring impression of new possibilities for the alternative accordion arts community in Vancouver. Big squeezes to all! Photo Credit: Ben Samson Photography
Sadly, Geoff Berner will not be performing at the Speakeasy as planned, due to a family tragedy. We will Speak as Easily as possible in his absence. Check in at the FB event page for line-up updates. We have some great acts stepping in to help us squeeze on.
A whole festival’s worth of love to Geoff and his family,
The Accordion Noir Festival
Dr. Jack of Dr. Jack’s Jackpot of Cabaret Curios prescribes a strong dose of cabaret to be added to each night of festival entertainments. He has gathered an intoxicating crew of performers who will no doubt cure even the worst case of ennui and lethargy. Check them out at our Cabaret Curios page.
