The Accordion Noir society (est. 2011) exists to promote the use of free-reed aerophone instruments and the enjoyment of listening to the music they make on all different kinds of squeezeboxes, both in a pre-recorded, broadcast (and podcast) context and in a setting of live music performance, both in and around our home of Vancouver, BC, Canada, and to wider audiences.
This mission primarily manifests in four ways:
- Accordion Noir Radio (weekly)
- Vancouver Squeezebox Circle (monthly)
- Accordion Noir Festival (annually)
- Other events (sporadically)
