My name is Kim S. and I’m an accordion enabler.
Most every year I host the April meeting of Accordions Anonymous right on the Park Blocks stage on Opening Day, and I enjoy the whole thing start to finish, including the chaos of getting it all set up.
I love any good musical conspiracy, especially the ones with great senses of humor. Who doesn’t get chills (yes, the good kind… sheesh) upon hearing “The Age of Accordions,” and who can resist singing along? But really, I love most of all the moving geometry of the things – endlessly shifting orderly lines, rows of buttons, shiny chrome and swirly pearl accents and loopy lettering. Camera candy!
