Sydney Folk Festival - Australia

by Diatonic News
Sydney Folk Festival - Australia16 – 18 August 2019

The Sydney Folk Festival is a long-overdue celebration of all those musical genres that sit under the big, joyous ‘folk music’ umbrella. The term ‘folk music’ has come to represent everything from our traditional music, mostly born in the bush, through to singer songwriters who carry on the tradition of storytelling in music. It also takes in all those musical expressions that have found their way to our country representing the streams of migration from the First Fleet through to those who arrived last week.

The Festival has its own fusion of what has become known as ‘world music’. There’s also the songs and dance music that grew out of our colonial history as fossickers scrambled for gold, pioneers farmed the earth or moved mobs of cattle and sheep across the land. Blues, bluegrass, jug band, a cappella and touches of jazz also sit under the same umbrella for folk music is a welcoming music beyond boundaries.

The festival also celebrates the music of their first peoples and acknowledge the traditional owners of the land, Gadigal land, were our festival is held.

This is an urban festival and our venues are in the heart of the city, five minutes from Sydney Town Hall.

Workshops, expositie, ontmoeten, open podium, samenspelen, kletsen, borrelen: op zondag 25 augustus vindt in Museum ‘t Oude Slot weer het gezellige en muzikale Trekharmonicafestival & mondharmonica Veldhoven plaats. Dit festival trekt elk jaar meer dan 100 verschillende muzikanten die deze middag muziek komen spelen.

Jan Hoog Antink laat op de trekharmonicadag in Veldhoven zijn verzameling zien en zal er ook verhalen bij vertellen. In 2015 verkocht Jan een Garmoska aan harmonicabouwer Frans van der Aa.

Carrefour Mondial de L'Accordeon Festival, Montmagny - Canada

by Diatonic News
Carrefour Mondial de L'Accordeon Festival, Montmagny - Canada
Via Rivière-du-Loup Rte 132 Ouest ou Autoroute 20 Ouest (Sortie 378 ou Sortie 376)

The Carrefour Mondial de l’Accordeon Festival takes place from August 29 to September 2, 2019 in Montmagny, Via Rivière-du-Loup Rte 132 Ouest ou Autoroute 20 Ouest (Sortie 378 ou Sortie 376) Montmagny is a proudly French-speaking town that is over 300 years old and has 11,885 residents.

Artistic Director: Raynald Ouellet

From August 29 through September 2, the population swells to more than 50,000, most of them intent on hearing some of the finest accordionists in the world.

Quote from a TripAdvisor contributor, "If you love accordion music (or even if you hate it), this place is an adventure. The Carrefour Mondial brings accordionists from all over the globe, and it seems as if every man, woman, and child in Montmagny plays some version of a squeezebox. We camped out, dined where we could (the locals provide their hearty version of baked beans), line danced, and heard the accordion stretched to its ultimate performance abilities. It was so much fun. Highly recommended.”

Laat je ’s avonds meevoeren door het poëtische Sirus Quartet met Zweedse, Franse, Hongaarse en Belgische roots. En geniet van de a capella folksongs van MissT en 40 jaar traditionele muziek uit Brabant met het Brabants Volksorkest. Ook Griff Trio pakt het podium helemaal in met hun eigenzinnige doedelzakken op z’n Belgisch. Lidija Dokuzović & Allan Skrobe nemen je dan weer mee op reis naar de Balkan en Kroatië met lyrische liederen.

Dansen kan én mag op de tonen van het jonge trio Folkies en den Dief, de vonkende folkgrooves van Loogaroo, de gestreken en getokkelde snaarklanken van het Waalse Trio14, de Italiaanse powerbalfolk van Duo Bottasso, het unieke Master’s Ball met de lesgevers, het giga-instantorkest van de stage Gooikestra en de gigantische baljam met alle deelnemers onder leiding van Birgit Bornauw, Gabriel Lenoir en Benjamin Macke!

Sirus Quartet in concert - Belgium

by Diatonic News
Sirus QuartetWednesday 21 August 2019 at 20h
▷ Concert in the Sint-Niklaaskerk, Dorpsstraat, 1755 Gooik

Sirus Quartet is the unexpected but flowing amalgamation of two established duos. The four musicians each have their roots in the traditional music of their homeland which they convey with great love to far beyond their country boundaries. Their greatest strength and the leitmotif of the music is the natural flow in which all these different influences are mixed. 2 + 2 is definitely over 4 here. The Swedish Jonas Åkerlund on guitar, Hardangerviolin and Sackpipa and nyckelharpa Player Josefina Paulson each bring their traditions from the Västerdalarna and Uppland regions. Josefina also gives the session nyckelharpa during the internship. Diatonic dansband Sophie cavez and Baltazar Montanaro on baritone violin provide influences from Belgian, French and Hungarian traditional music. As a quartet, Sirus recently released a first CD Lummen , full of his own danceable compositions with one foot in traditional music and another in a broader musical spectrum. Let yourself be swept away by their beautiful music full of untamed imagination and fun!

Loogaroo/Folkbal Gooik - BE

by Diatonic News
LoogarooWednesday 21 August 2019 at 21.30 h
▷ Folkbal in the room Familia, Bronnenweg 2, 1755 Gooik

Folk grooves with Sparks

Loogaroo is the brand new ball project of two experienced Belgian folk musicians. After more than 6 years of touring together in various projects, diatonic accordionist Pablo Golder and guitarist Florian De Schepper are now also a duo. These two gentlemen are therefore perfectly connected. Pablo can be acquainted with I Fratelli Tarzanelli or Ekko and provides powerful, subtle and surprising melodies. Florian of duo the creator-Sanczuk and Broes is in for the grooving, pumping rhythms. Loogaroo is a mythical creature from the Caribbean that transforms into a light ball that drives out the night. Not to be confused with the French loup-Garou so. No weeping werewolves, but sturdy folk whose sparks are splashing and dancing all night, even at full moon

The Wild Catahoulas @ The Cotati Festival - USA

by Diatonic News
Wild CatahoulasThe Wild Catahoulas is that unique Cajun/ Zydeco band in the North Bay, merging traditional Cajun French two-steps and waltzes from Southwestern Louisiana with contemporary Zydeco and New Orleans sounds. In other words, a GREAT dance band.

Duo Botasso/Italian Powerbalkolk - BE/IT

by Diatonic News
Duo BottassoFriday 23 August 2019 at 21.30 PM
▷ Folkbal in the room Familia, Bronnenweg 2, 1755 Gooik

Italian Powerbalfolk

The young genial brothers Bottasso from the Occitan region of Italy play spicy traditional balfolk full of energy. They bring world music to life with self-written compositions and interpretations of folksongs. The two brothers, who can read each other perfectly musically, always look for the balance between the sensitivity of their instruments and their own explosive energy. Both Nicolò on violin and Trumpet and Simone on diatonic accordion flames as well as the best on their instruments. You can also follow the tutorial at Simone during the session diatonic accordion advanced. At the same time, they have a strong urge to keep the tradition of their homeland moving. Although they get their inspiration close to Piedmont, they enrich their music with improvisation and many other influences from jazz to classical, funk or Brazilian music. With one big constant: an irresistible groove full of refined musical mastery!

20 ans que KENDIRVI creuse le sillon d'une musique traditionnelle bretonne vivante, ouverte aux quatre vents, une musique épicée et voyageuse, mais qui garde les pieds bien sur le parquet.

KENDIRVI, c'est aussi et surtout une belle troupe de bateleurs qui continue de trimballer sa caravane d'influences et de sonorités, de racines profondes et d'envies d'ailleurs.

KENDIRVI donne rendez-vous aux danseurs dans une ambiance chaleureuse, les têtes et les cœurs s’évaderont, entrainés par l’accordéon, la bombarde, la trompette et tous les instruments animés par le doigté subtil des musiciens du groupe. En Bretagne ou ailleurs, c’est du pareil au même tant que le cœur est à la fête !

Concert ‘vergeten groenten’ door Remco Sietsema - Netherlands

by Diatonic News
Remco Sietsemazondag 25 augustus 2019

•Concert Remco Sietsema: funky wereldmuziek, jazzy reggae en een dansbare, zwoele zomeravond.

Remco Sietsema vertegenwoordigt een nieuwe generatie trekharmonicaspelers. De trekharmonica is de vergeten groente van de muziekinstrumenten; niet het meest voor de hand liggend, niet altijd populair, maar het zorgt voor een compleet andere en bijzondere sensatie die we eigenlijk allemaal vaker zouden willen ervaren.
Remco speelt zelfgeschreven composities en nieuw repertoire. Hij combineert vele stijlen, van funky wereldmuziek tot jazzy reggae en folk. Denk aan intieme liedjes, maar vooral zeer dansbare, opzwepende, zwoele zomeravonden.
Hij laat hiermee de veelzijdigheid en aantrekkingskracht van het instrument zien en rekent voor altijd af met de vooroordelen rondom de trekharmonica.

Eerder speelde Remco Sietsema in de formaties The Tunes en Merals Harem én speelde hij met zijn trekharmonica in diverse muziektheaterproducties. In 2017 verscheen zijn debuutalbum Sultana, waarop de trekharmonica -uiteraard- centraal staat.

Marc PircherMarc Pircher ist ein Musiker der volkstümlichen Szene aus dem österreichischen Ried im Zillertal. Pircher singt volkstümliche Lieder sowie Schlager und tritt als Harmonikaspieler auf.

Sie sagen: um eines gleich vorwegzunehmen - Wir wollen nicht die Musik neu erfinden, sondern vor allem die Musik machen, die wir uns auch selber anhören würden. Denn nur Musik zu machen um vor allem in irgendeine kommerzielle Schiene zu passen ist nicht unsere Sache. Wir sind überzeugt davon, dass man nur die Musik ehrlich zum Publikum rüberbringen kann, hinter der man auch steht, und die einem selber gefällt.

Folkies en den DiefTuesday 20 August 2019 at 21 h
▷ Folkbal in the room Familia, Bronnenweg 2, 1755 Gooik

Young Balfolkies

The young folk band Folkies and The Thief were born and bred in Gooik. Two years ago, three young musicians got to know each other at the academy for Word, music and dance. Many jam sessions on the internship later, Maarten Parent, Victor Schollaert and Benoit Verbeiren were even better matched. They only bring their own danceable compositions with roots in the traditional folk. The combination of bagpipes, diatonic accordion, piano and clarinet give a unique colour to their music. Balfolk that makes you move and can stir at the same time. This trio undoubtedly puts the eve of the internship firmly in motion. Afterwards, we jamming together on the loose. Come and Party!
