Leanne Hill’s unique accordion stylings combine her eclectic interest in musical styles ranging from Classical to European folk to Old Time American. She has recently played solo for regional farmers’ markets, festivals, and fundraisers, and featured in a jazz trio commissioned by the philanthropy organization Northfield Shares. Raised in Southeast Minnesota, Leanne synthesized lessons from her graduate studies in music to become a masterful autodidact on the accordion. Her unique style takes inspiration from the music she has encountered on her many European travels. Revelers at numerous Oktoberfests over the past decade have enjoyed the melodious strains from her instrument, as have patrons of French restaurants in New England who have mused over her renditions of famous musette works. Her special interests in crafting inventive arrangements and uncovering forgotten repertoires make for a riveting spectacle for the ear, mind, and heart.
