Missionary/Mercenary: The Accordion In The Workplace
Missionary/Mercenary: The Accordion in the Workplace was a seminar and performance series that ran in 1996, hosted by the American Accordionists' Association and curated and moderated by Dr. William Schimmel at the Tenri Cultural Institute in SoHo. John Linnell presented an accordion piece for the "Art of the Club Date" segment of the seminar. The seminar showcased both the accordion's traditional origins and the ways its use had evolved in the twentieth century. Linnell's piece featured rock accordion grooves that are appropriate to performing for a rock audience.
