All Hail Queen Joan, the boogie woogie queen from the Bayou! We are thrilled to have discovered musician Joan Atwell’s YouTube channel, Ivory Tickler Mama, where she plays love songs on her accordion to all the animals on her farm.
Think of Joan as the horse whisperer but instead of whispering to the horses she’s banging on her accordion and wailing out her favorite ditties to all the cats, dogs and cows.
Joan claims her menagerie of animals love her music and we do too! We love hearing her animals bark and moo along in a wonderfully wacky chorus to her music. It’s just a matter of time before Joan’s wild videos become a viral hit.
While her husband works a long hard day in a chicken processing plant, Joan also jams on the piano with her mom, who she calls momma Kat, or is it her cat named momma cat? We’re not sure.
Listen as Madame Joan talks about her creative life as a video blogger, eating beaver and singing telegrams as Elva, Elvis’ kissing cousin who taught him everything he knows.
Joan also pulls out the accordion and wows us with some great American classic tunes.
