AccNoir-2010-12-22, Kate McGarrigle Memorial

Posted on 3 January, 2011 - 18:14 byRowan Lipkovits

59:40 minutes (51.43 MB)

Greetings from co-host Rowan in his very first self-podcasted episode, with only a very small amount of help from Bruce. As our last show of the year, I wanted to do a tribute episode to accordion players who left us in 2010, and truly there were titans: Art van Damme, Esteban Jordan, Shirley Evans, and earliest of all, Kate McGarrigle. But as Bruce noted, Art and Esteban already got entire episodes dedicated to them, while we didn't have enough of Shirley's work on file to do her justice.
