Here’s another image from last weekend’s accordion festival. This guy is old school, but his look is très cool. No need for color–his vibe is all about black and white. I grabbed the shot while standing just outside a small booth where accordions were being sold.

This past weekend our band played at the Cotati Accordion Festival. Our set was on Saturday, but Maggie and I were there all day, both days, selling merch and hanging with friends and fans. When I wasn’t at the booth working, eating or enjoying a cold beer or two ;-), I was out and about with my camera. My first offering is a portrait of our fiddler friend Scott working a button box.

Yesterday, my accordéoniste wife and I played a few tunes at the grand re-opening ceremony at Smythe’s Accordion Center in Oakland, CA. The event featured lots of fine musicians. I kept my G11 handy and took shots throughout the day. Here are two faves (that they are both diagonal shots is purely a coincidence).
