“We don’t have a banjo,” says Dance Attic guitar player and singer Jimi Cooper. “We have an accordion!” The concertina he’s referencing is played by Susan Ludwig of Father Hennepin fame, who also sings in Dance Attic. Their sound, says Cooper, encompasses the classic Duluth rawk and/or roll combination of old-time country, polka, 1920s swing, and march music. Sets include romantic Italian accordion pieces, Norwegian folk, the Monty Python’s Flying Circus and PBS Mystery themes, Hawaiian tunes, “a derangement of a Beatles song,” and “originals that are all over the place.” Cooper also plays in the Fractals and does solo fingerstyle-guitar gigs every other Thursday at the Thirsty Pagan in Superior in rotation with Dance Attic gigs.
