Marie-Êve Pominville has been playing piano accordion for the last 20 years She fell in love with that instrument at a very young age but her passion increased even more when she discovered the music of Ad vielle que pourra, especially Daniel ‘s compositions. She knows his repertory even better than he does himself! She learned the accordion first by herself, then with Luc Lopez the french accordionist.
Ad va que pour elle plays the music of Daniel Thonon arranged for accordion duet.
