A Musical Jake of All Trades
On this edition, the multi talented accordion player Jake Bastyr of Naytahwaush, Minnesota. When Jake was 10 years old, he begged his parents for an accordion. They gave him $50, eased the restrictions on E-Bay and let him have at it. That first accordion wasn’t even in playing condition, but that didn’t deter Jake and a career was born. He’s been learning, playing and repairing accordions with a passion ever since. At the age of 16, Jake started getting gigs that has stretched him even further. Stop by The Castle and see Jake for your repair needs including custom MIDI & audio outfitting, tuning diagnostics (including detailed prinout) and concertina repairs. Jake is also the radio host of Jake’s Polka Show, which airs Sunday afternoons from 12-2p on KCRQ Radio in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota.
