Accordion Stories (DVD)



Renowned performance artist Steve Pellegrino in his entertaining one man show about growing up in an immigrant Italian family, whose lives were affected by the great depression, union organizing, and WWII.


Accordion Stories is storytelling at its best, interspersed with music and song. Pellegrino tells engaging tales of his family and their accordions and performs both popular songs as well as his own original tunes. Family, music, and the accordion lead to many stories and connections.


“Pellegrino is not just a musician, he’s a storyteller who can talk and sing as well as play, and he has all the gusto of a Qualters painting.” – Chris Rawson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
