Sarah Starpoli is relatively new to the accordion, though thoroughly convinced they were separated at birth. A singer/songwriter/performance artist/brunch lover, she likes to compose witty songs about things like food, gossip, boys and wrath. An office goddess by day, Sarah holds a fancy schmancy degree in Experimental Performance and can’t decide whether she wants to be a rockstar, a singing cashier, a writer of socially-relevant musical theater, or all of the above.
An Italian Grande Vox from perhaps the 1950s, purchased in San Francisco at Accordion Apocalypse (www.accordionapocalypse.com). She is named “Ethel” after Sarah’s maternal grandmother, who was neither Italian nor purchased in San Francisco.
