Accordion Noir Festival XII mainstage
November 15, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm$20
East Vancouver’s infamous Accordion Noir Festival is once again nigh upon us, squeezing reedy tones out at you from the weekend of November 15-16th — our most syncopated date ever!
The instrument is as everywhere as it is nowhere, and this year’s Friday night mainstage program at The Wise Hall & Lounge (1882 Adanac at Victoria) constitutes a good start at a world tour for your ears, beginning with an excursion into the sounds of east Africa with Sudanda, heading north to Sápmi in northern Finland with VILDÁ, sailing from Scandinavia across the Atlantic in longboats to Vinland to compose new epics with Wolfbrood, then veering sharply south to stomp our boots to the sweaty swamp sounds of the Mississippi River Delta with Nuvo Zydeco.
Please join us at Spartacus Books the following afternoon at 2 pm for our by-donation Community Day program!
