Frank Sears: L’anche a deux cordes
Frank Sears is a young gifted accordeonist who’s style is distinct and lively. His playing is rythmically perfect and his repertoire is most interesting. Frank is here accompanied by a guitarist and a doublebass player.
The album was nominated for the best album of 2006 at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in Edmonton Alberta. Among other places, it can be purchased at www.galarecords.ca/commande.htm or at www.trentesouszero.com/255.html.
For those who enjoy "crooked tunes" - those are common in Quebec, the "Clog a Ti-Jules" (Aminor) is a jewel you’ll cherish, either on fiddle or accordeon. I play it on a C whistle but there’s a catch with the half holes needed here and there. I’ll try to submit this tune. If I don’t succeed, get in touch with me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll gladly provide you with a MIDI file and/or a JPG or PDF of the part.
