Bernard Stepien and David Broscoe have been conspirators for a long time, but usually playing saxophone. But five years ago, Bernard brought his Hohner accordion – the one he played as a child – over from Europe, and the extra capabilities of that instrument and the encouragement of a few friends persuaded him to try it in a improvised music context.
And so was born their Accordion Conspiracy. They'll be reprising it at IMOOfest this Saturday, November 9, at 8:30 p.m.
Our video features excerpts from their initial concert at IMOO on January 27, 2013, and an interview with Stepien and Broscoe.
