NICK VERNOLA
3:00 pm

"Only the Accordion Changed" Nick Vernola plays the "Virtual Accordion" by Roland. The magnificent orchestrations do a great job on very popular songs from 1920s to the late 1980s. The song selection is a list of highly recognized pop music no matter how old you are, so sing along if you like. Accordion playing is a lost art but still very entertaining.

If you are an acoustic musician and want some exposure (in exchange for a vendor goodie basket), contact the Market Manager by email or FB message and link to samples of your music, if possible — or better yet, stop by the Market and introduce yourself. These are not paying gigs and we don't want it too loud, unless its really special — like John Driskell Hopkins unexpectedly stopping by (please!).

 

The Market has a page at ReverbNation, which is used to book performers and list dates. Facebook Events will also feature the performers and we will keep you up-to-date on the website calendar of events.
