Cross a guitar virtuoso with an accordion aficionado and lock them in an attic full of 78 rpm records and that’s Dance Attic. The brainchild of accordionist and vocalist Suzi Ludwig and longtime Fractals guitarist Jimi Cooper, a singer in his own right, Dance Attic is an upbeat, swinging reminder of what parlor music sounded like in America during the first part of the previous century. The collaboration started in 2014 when Cooper and Ludwig discovered a mutual affection for old-time American music, polkas, Italian romantic and other folk music. The tunes are happy and fun, reminiscent of R. Crumb and His Cheap Suit Serenaders or a stack of grandpa’s cherished gramophones.
