Those who love the soothing sound of an accordion are going to want to head to the Alderney Landing Farmers' Market this weekend.

Adam Faber, also known as Loud AF, will be performing a free show Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

Despite now living in Toronto, the Gaetz Brook native's parody songs often feature Halifax-related topics, including the potential CFL stadium, Quinpool Road's carmageddon and the Sullivan's Pond geese.

"They'll bring the pain if you cross them now, 'cause Hope for Wildlife let 'em out," Faber sings in Dartmouth Geese Aren't Nice, to the tune of Backstreet Boys' Everybody (Backstreet's Back).

"The geese are aggressive, the geese have personal issues that they need to work out. It's like a public service announcement, keep your distance," Faber said about the waterfowl who inspired the song.

Farber writes his tunes to make his friends laugh and said, as an accordion-playing parody singer, he often gets compared to Weird Al.

"I embrace it, he was the trail blazer and just going to be an homage."

Faber is in town visiting his mom for Easter, and decided to use the opportunity to play the show.

"I'm going to play these tunes that people have been liking and retweeting, and share them there at the market," he told NEWS 95.7's The Sheldon MacLeod Show. "I accidentally tapped into this big community vibe, so the farmers' market is the place to go."

He'll also be collection donations for the Dartmouth Shelter Society.
