Every Monday, I will be posting a new or newly discovered (newly by me, anyway) video of French accordionistics. Obviously, this is no departure from what this blog is about. In light of recent events I thought I would step up the consistency and pace of putting this joyful music out there — a strike against the rage, nihilism, and misanthrope that seems to be boiling up out there.
If you would like to draw my attention to something out there that should be posted, or want to submit one of yourself playing some French tune (including Breton) on accordion, email me here.
It’s been more than two years since I released my CD, L’Autre Diatoniste. It was a great experience recording, and I’m still quite proud of it. This month I’m going to begin the cycle of recording my next CD. As a way of celebrating the process and maybe funding the new project. So, I’m offering L’Autre Diatoniste on sale — almost 50% off — $7 for the physical CD (plus shipping), or $4 for the download. Go on over to my Bandcamp page and buy it!
This video of from the Dino Baffetti factory has been posted on Facebook by the Dino Baffetti Portuguese branch. Really very charming and interesting look at the building of the objects of my obsession.
