Dan Newton with Diane Jarvi: Songs of Edith Piaf and other French Classics

Diane Jarvi is a singer of international songs who's voice has been frequently compared with the great French chanteuse Edith Piaf. Dan Newton has been called the accordionist for people who don't think they like accordions. Together they will team up with guitarist Dean Harrington and bassist Erik Lillestol for an intimate look at the song of Edith Piaf and those she has influenced, plus a dose of Gypsy jazz and musette."Daddy Squeeze" has been playing offbeat accordion music since 1987, when he won the Nebraska State Accordion Contest at the Czech Festival in Wilber, Nebraska. He has used the squeeze box for playing all kinds of music not normally associated with free-reed instruments, as well as standard accordion material.

Daddy Squeeze also enjoys mixing up styles and genres that don't generally seem compatible. "Music out of context", or "Ethno-clectic Bop" is the result of his genre-bending experiments with Celtic, Tex-Mex, Creole, Blues, Jazz, Scandinavian, Polka and pop music.
