Accordions have returned…with a beautiful, eloquent, haunting, and down-right exciting vengeance! Accordions Rising is about the resurgence of interest in accordion music over the last 30-40 years. Although many continue to see the accordion as the stodgy instrument of a bygone era – and accordion jokes abound – this film sets the record straight.

It is the story of the variety, diversity and extraordinary virtuosity of the instrument and the music that it can make. Accordions Rising includes many fascinating individuals, their conversational style interviews, anecdotal commentary and various performance examples. Not only accordion lovers, but also music lovers and those interested in trends in American culture will be intrigued with this delightful and informative film.

Description

Emmy award-winning filmmaker Roberta Cantow’s toe-tapping new film, Accordions Rising, is now available from AccordionCentral.Com. This brand new film has now been shown at two film festivals in the US: Cinema on the Bayou in Lafayette Louisiana and The Bare Bones International Music and Film Festival in Muskogee, Oklahoma where it was nominated for Best Music Documentary.  This vibrant film brings cool back to the accordion, delving into the musical resurgence of an instrument not just limited to one man bands and traditional folk but equally at home in diverse genres from classical and jazz to rock and rap.

This music documentary shatters the mistaken notions about accordions and tells the real American accordion story.
