Weird Al loves them, and so should you!

Accordions are a magical instrument – their sound charms us and makes us smile – there’s no question a good accordion song will cheer you up.

And I happened to be driving down the road the other day when I noticed a sign for Edmonton’s very own Accordion Extravaganza happening in our city this weekend at St. John’s Cultural Centre!

To celebrate this news – I’ve always been fascinated by the accordion & thought it would be fun to get a player from the festival (and organiser) Charlie to play some accordion for us live on the radio!

So he gave us a fast fun performance – and told us some fascinating facts from his accordion career.
