VANCITY SPONSORS ACCORDION YOUTH
Hats off to Vancity! For three years Vancity Credit Union has helped Accordion Noir fund community activities at the festival. This year Vancity donated $250 to help us fund our Youth Incentives. Thanks to generous funding from Vancity and BC Arts Council we are able to focus our community programming around sponsoring and mentoring a handful of youth performers for an afternoon all ages showcase on Sept 13th at Spartacus books. The event “Diver’s Bell Lounge” will also offer free workshops, cameo festival artist performances and a repair booth by Melodona. Also, we will be raffling off this rather lovely little 12 Bass Castle accordion as part of the afternoon’s activities. It would be a great instrument for a beginning or young player, or it could also be very useful to a more advanced player who wants something super light on which to play mostly right hand lines. In addition to having awesome sparkly blue flat/sharp keys and buttons this little instrument has a surprisingly big sound and a sumptuous tone. It could be yours for just a few bucks…just come on down to Spartacus, 3378 Findlay Street, on Sept 13th, 2-6pm.
