Accordionist Mike Danner

He took up the accordion because he wanted an instrument that was easy to pack around from gig to gig. But Mike Danner discovered a real love for the accordion and has found ways to coax a surprisingly modern sound out of it with his songwriting. He also plays with the band Trashcan Joe.
