Squeeze Box Stories funding

The California Council for the Humanities awarded a $40,000 grant for the California Stories: California Documentary Project proposal “Squeezebox Stories.” This will fund a radio documentary by project directors Julie Caine and MariĆ© Abe exploring the stories and rich traditions of the accordion in California’s diverse cultural landscape. “Squeezebox Stories is a sound-rich, narrative-driven public radio documentary that explores the social history, multicultural adaptation, and musical variation of this eclectic, loud, and portable people’s instrument.”
