Penny Sanborn’s accordion music captures the hearts of her listeners. She is known for performing lyrical melodies along with high spirited dance pieces. She is a crowd favourite due to her polished sound and warm personality on stage.

She entertains for events ranging from concerts, to formal dinners, wedding receptions, and corporate events. She is also a steady entertainer at restaurants. She performs on solo accordion and also in combinations with other professional musicians on vocals, guitar and bass.
