A totally unplugged show. The Eastgate Cafe is a cozy family-run bistro with great food which will *not* go up your nose when you laugh. With help from Indianapolis old-time guitar/banjo/mandolin artist Caleb Hawkins! We had a great time and want to thank everyone who came for your generous support.
Mon 02/25/13 Clue clue clue...
This weekend I finally discovered how different the accordion sounds to the audience than to me. I did test recordings of each of my three Accordions of Gold with room mics (to simulate playing “unplugged”) and clamp-on accordion mics. It turns out the little “travel accordion” has the fullest, most balanced sound, and what appears to me to be a weak right hand doesn’t sound that way from the room at all. It also turned out to need very different placement of the clamp-on mics than I’d been using in order to capture the right hand correctly. Who knew??? Science!
