All year round, Dutch Portland-based Accordion player Jet Black Pearl performs across the US.
Wolrd Wild Accordion Diva. The untamed and inimitable Jet Black Pearl from the port of Amsterdam spent many years in the south of France before settling in Portland in 2014. She has performed on more than a thousand stages all over the world. Intelligently zany, her songs sound like a mad hatter's European gypsy tea party with a hip hop attitude. She creates grooves and mesmerizing layers of flute, plastic bottles, vocal percussion and harmonies while squeezing one hot accordion.
On the west side of the Atlantic, Jet Black Pearl has performed at the following festivals: Oregon Eclipse 2017, Shift Festival 2017, Accordion Noir Festival (Vancouver, CA), Utah Arts Festival (SLC), Moisture Festival (Seattle), Oregon Country Fair, Trails & Vistas (Lake Tahoe), Edwardian Ball (San Francisco), Accordions Around the World (Bryant Park, NYC), Whole Earth Festival (Davis), Cotati Accordion Festival.
