The Ins and the Outs of the Accordion

Woodford Folk Festival, Queensland – Australia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Woodford Folk Festival is an annual celebration of music, the arts, the environment and culture, running from Saturday the 27th December through to late on the 1st January.

Six days and nights of concerts, dance from around the world, workshops, forums, street theatre, films, the comedy club, the GreenHouse venue dedicated to sustainability and the environment, Folk Medicine, an entire children's festival, music, art, dance and circus workshops, late night cabarets, street theatre and special events including a spectacular fire event.

580 acts and 3,000 individual performers come together with an aggregate attendance of between 120,000 and 130,000 patrons; Woodford Folk Festival is one of the largest ‘folk’ festivals in the world.

The festival site, an all ages audience and the sense of community help make Woodford Folk Festival a unique festival experience. Set in a lush valley, framed by the Glasshouse Mountains, bordered by Bellthorpe National Park, 5kms from the tiny township of Woodford and only hour from Brisbane, Woodford Folk Festival is a cultural expression of community through engagement and interaction; a special time and space where connection, celebration and growth is the focus, where people can embrace and be embraced by the spirit of Woodford.

A delight for the senses, Woodford is diverse, rich and colourful. The festival celebrates the essence of Australia by bringing together and celebrating our cultural diversity. The programme runs from 8am until late every night, with hundreds of concerts, shows, talks and workshops every day.

The programme is available online at www.woodfordfolkfestival.com or by calling the Queensland Folk Federation - 612 07 5496 1066

There's an incredible array of talented performers and artists appearing at the festival, ranging from jazz to hip-hop, classical Indian to burlesque, bluegrass to gypsy, musical to comedy, and the inimitable 'folk', with every gradation between. This is a very inclusive festival; with its broad definition of folk music and wide range of audiences of all ages the festival metamorphism has been from a ‘folk’ festival to a ‘folk in spirit’ festival. It's more than the performances; it is an adventure into another world.

Chango Spasiuk – new CD/Tour dates – Argentina

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Accordionist Chango Spasiuk’s Ukrainian grandparents immigrated to the Misiones province of Northeast Argentina in the late 19th century, bringing with them the accordion music and dances of Eastern Europe, particularly the schottis, polka, and waltz. In their new home they soon discovered an affinity for chamamé - an indigenous Guaraní term for a lighthearted dance, but also referring in Spanish to the enramada, a shaded patio protecting against the tropical sun, a place for entertainment and repose. Chamamé is a sprightly 6/8 genre first documented in the early 19th century - the first chamamé on a 78rpm disc was released by RCA in Buenos Aires in 1930.
An exceptionally expressive performer, Spasiuk taps into a higher animating spirit, playing like a man possessed, visibly transported amidst the affecting swirl of the category defying resonance of his enchanted squeezebox. His rapt, dervish-like stage presence and his extraordinary ensemble make for a music of profound beauty and feeling. While his artistry articulates a deep sense of melancholy - so much a part of Argentine social history - it also conveys a resilient optimism before the tragic destination of all human endeavours.
Chango Spasiuk has released six solo albums in Argentina, among which the many-awarded ‘Polcas de mi Tierra’ (1999). With his first international release ‘Tarefero de mis Pagos’ (Piranha) winning him a BBC Award for World Music (Best Newcomer 2005) as well as a Latin Grammy nomination in 2006, Chango is now fast building his international reputation with a busy touring schedule in Europe and more recently, North America. His long-awaited new album is scheduled for release in early 2009 on Hamonia Mundi/World Village.
His new CD «Pynandí (Los Descalzos)» / 2009 Sony BMG Argentina
His next tour dates:
15 y 16 de Enero - Club Medio y Medio de Punta del este
28 de Diciembre - Festival del Musica del mundo - Joao Pessoa - Brasil

Michael Rettig mit großem Erfolg in Moskau - Russland

by Werner Weibert
Der zweifache Harmonika-Weltmeister und mehrfache deutsche Akkordeonmeister wurde zum 7. Moskauer Musik-Festival "Duscha Rossii" eingeladen. Dieses hoch angesehene Festival wird von Natalia Voronenko, Leiterin des Alfred-Mirek-Museums mit Unterstützung des russischen Kultusministeriums und der Stadtverwaltung Moskau, jährlich veranstaltet.
Es umfasst eine fünftägige Konzertreihe in verschiedenen Theatersälen Moskaus und findet seinen Höhepunkt beim Gala-Abschlusskonzert im weltberühmten Tschaikowski-Konzertsaal.
Bei Nachfrage von Frau Voronenko, einen deutschen Spieler nach Moskau einzuladen, empfahl Prof. Ullrich Schmülling, Herausgeber der Intermusik-Zeitung für Akkordeon- und Harmonika-Kultur, sofort Michael Rettig, als herausragendes Talent.
Fünfzig internationale Akkordeon- und Harmonika-Virtuosen, präsentierten Musik auf höchstem Weltniveau als Solisten oder im Ensemble mit anderen Instrumenten so u.a. mit der russischen Balalaika.
Die herzliche Gastfreundschaft und die perfekte Organisation trugen ebenso wesentlich zum Gelingen dieses aussergewöhnlichen Musikfestes bei.
Die Musikpädagogen Vitali Neifert aus Pforzheim (Bajan-Akkordeon ) und Hubert Klausner aus Aschau/Zillertal ( Steirische Harmonika ) ließen es sich nicht nehmen, ihren langjährigen Schüler Michael Rettig zu begleiten und dieses Highlight zu genießen. Diese äußerst vielseitigen Instrumente haben sich längst ihren Platz in den Konzertsälen der Welt erobert, ob im klassischen oder modernen Bereich.
„Die Kreativität kennt keine Grenzen“, so Michael Rettig, „und ich möchte dieses fantastische Erlebnis mit den vielen mitgebrachten Ideen und Eindrücken aus der Weltmetropole Moskau in Zusammenarbeit mit Vitali Neifert und Hubert Klausner musikalisch in meinen nächsten Konzerten umsetzen.“

Con i festival Zingarìa e Capodanze l'Associazione promuove musica, canti e danze tradizionali in chiave multietnica, cioè sia della Puglia e del sud in genere (pizziche, tarantelle, tammurriate, ecc.) che di altre regioni e nazioni, senza bisogno di contaminarle anzi difendendone l'identità.
Ciò che rende diverso e unico nel centro sud il festival Zingarìa (estate) o Capodanze (inverno), rispetto agli altri, sono 300 - 400 stagisti residenziali (uno o più moduli di 5 giorni) provenienti per il 70% dal centro nord e dall'estero.
Infatti oltre al pubblico serale che ascolta concerti o guarda un'esibizione folkloristica, come negli altri festivals, a Zingarìa e Capodanze partecipa anche un folto numero di appassionati del settore per una full immersion che comincia con gli affollatissimi stages della mattina e del pomeriggio e prosegue con concerti a ballo e jam session improvvisate della sera/notte, spesso sino all'alba, e così per 5 o 10 o 15 giorni consecutivi, secondo il numero di moduli organizzati
Gli artisti:
Il magico sud...
Ràreca Antica **Campania** tammurriate (29-31)

Diatonischer Akkordeon-/Mundharmonikakurs auf Burg Fürsteneck - Deutschland

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Diatonisches Akkordeon XXL
Kurs 361 - TLA B2
Spezialkurs für Instrumente mit 12 Bässen und Halbtönen
04. Dezember 2009 18.30 Uhr bis 06. Dezember 2009 13.00 Uhr
Kursgebühren: 185 - 235 € (inkl. 89,88 € Ü/VP), 145 € Jug
Leitung: Jan Budweis
Dies ist ein Kurs für die "Großen" unter den "Kleinen": Voraussetzung ist ein diatonisches (wechseltöniges) Akkordeon in G/C mit mindestens 5 Knöpfen in einer 3. (Halbton-)Reihe auf der Melodieseite und 12 Köpfen auf der Bass-Seite.
Gegenüber dem 2-Reiher erweitert sich das Repertoire dieser Instrumente durch die zusätzlichen Töne und Akkorde, so dass neben den gewohnten weitere Tonarten entdeckt werden können. Wie diese neuen Möglichkeiten kreativ und spielerisch in das eigene Spiel integrieret werden können, ist Thema dieses Kurses.
Anhand von Stücken aus Folk- und Weltmusik wollen wir die Chromatik auf unserem Instrument erforschen, uns mit dem Erarbeiten von 2. Stimmen und verschiedenen Begleitmustern beschäftigen und einfache Arrangements für Solisten und/oder Gruppe erspielen.
Mundharmonika for everybody
Kurs 362 - TLA B2
Für Einsteiger/innen und Interessierte mit Vorkenntnissen
04. Dezember 2009 18.30 Uhr bis 06. Dezember 2009 13.00 Uhr
Kursgebühren: 185 - 235 € (inkl. 89,88 € Ü/VP), 145 € Jug
Leitung: Dale King
Die Mundharmonika ist ein relativ preiswertes Instrument, in der Hosentasche zu transportieren und leicht zu erlernen. Wer vielleicht nie die Möglichkeit hatte, ein Instrument zu erlernen, wer keine Notenkenntnisse mitbringt, wer Blues, Country, Rock'n Roll oder Volkslieder nicht nur von der Platte oder Kassette abspielen lassen sondern sie selbst auf der Mundharmonika interpretieren will und wer die verschiedenen Techniken erlernen möchte - der ist in diesem Kurs richtig! Das Repertoire im Kurs wird vor allem aus deutschen und amerikanische Volksliedern und Blues bestehen.
Kursteilnehmer können bei Bedarf eine geeignete Mundharmonika (in C-Dur) sowie das schriftlichen Begleitmaterial und eine CD für insgesamt 35,- € vom Kursleiter erwerben.

Beoga Reviews 2009 Year - Ireland

by Harley Jones
Photo of Beoga
Since the birth of the Irish band Beoga in 2002 they have received great reviews and become very popular. Some interesting parts of their Christmas newsletter say:

“The Beogas have hung up the weapons for a wee while and are taking a well earned rest. It’s been quite a year, with the new album release, 142 concerts, including our special 400th gig, 54 flights, 13 countries, 4 lost suitcases, 10,022 beers (mostly Damian’s), and thousands of pounds in excess baggage charges (Ryan Air, we salute you).”

Quite a year for the exciting band Beoga.

Zydeco Annie + Swamp Cats/on tour - Deutschland

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Alle Musikwege der USA führen in den tiefen Süden. Rock, Soul, Blues, Gospel, Rock ’n’ Roll, Jazz und Country - sie alle haben hier ihre Wurzeln.
In Louisiana vermischen sich Nationen und Kulturen auf einzigartige Weise. So entstand, ausgehend von New Orleans, aus dem afro-karibischen Lebensgefühl der vielen Kulturen und der französisch sprechenden Akadier, nachdem sie aus Kanada vertrieben wurden, der Zydeco.
In New Orleans, dem „Big Easy“, gilt heute noch die Devise „Laissez le bon temps rouler“ – „Lasst es Euch gut gehen“. Und das ist bei dieser Musik schon vorprogrammiert! Zydeco ist eine schnelle, tanzbare Musikform und Lebensfreude pur!
All musical ways of the USA are leading down south. Rock, Soul, Blues, Gospel, Rock ’n’ Roll, Jazz and Country - they all have their roots down here.
In Louisiana nations and cultures are mixed in a unique way. Beginning in New Orleans, Zydeco originated out of the afro-caribian lifestyle of all the cultures also the french-speaking Akadians, after they were displaced from Canada.

Zydeco is a fast-tempo, danceable kind of music and pure vitality!
In New Orleans, the „Big Easy“, till this day the motto is „Laissez le bon temps rouler“ – „Let the good times roll“. And that's preassigned with this Music! Zydeco is a fast-tempo, danceable kind of music and pure vitality!

Balkan Cabaret performing in Astoria OR - USA

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Balkan Cabaret brings the passion and poetry of traditional ballads and favorite old standards from the cafes and cabarets of Belgrade, Sofia and Sarajevo, and other Balkan cities from long before the influence of rock and roll. Their performance spans Sevdalinka ballads from Bosnis and Hercogovina, old town Starogradski tunes from Bulgaria, and favorites of many generations from Croatia, Serbia and Macedonia.
There are songs for sitting and listening while enjoying drink and conversation with friends, as well as high energy dance tunes. Whether on your feet or sitting back, you are taken to a time when feelings, reflection and community were not so overwhelmed by the rush of tech

LE BÉBERT ORCHESTRA in dicember - Canada

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Yves Lambert is considered a reference point when it comes to Quebecois folk music and certain Quebecois critics even regard him as a guiding light on the whole subject of Quebec’s cultural heritage. A mainstay of the cult bands from Québec La Bottine Souriante for 26 years, Yves Lambert packed his bags in January 2003 in pursuit of new adventures. Always on the lookout of new musical currents and young talent, he formed the Bébert Orchestra in 2004.

A new mix with strong roots in Québec patrimony, the Bébert Orchestra is a band with multi-instrument musicians coming from different areas such as Jazz, classical, pop-rock, country, traditionnal. Olivier Rondeau, Tommy Gauthier, Robin Boulianne and Jean François Déry distances themselves by their passion and virtuosity.

When maturity and youth get together, it’s a noble and familiar world that is offered to us by the charismatic Yves Lambert, with subtle arrangements and complicity. When they get together, they reveal the love for their roots and music, exploring mixed sounds in an open-minded attitude and curiosity. >>>

Im 18. Jahr sind die ‚Stumpfes’ nun auf einer ungebremsten Tour, bei mehr als 1.900 Konzerten haben sich die vier Ostälbler einen legendären Ruf als Wiederentdecker weit gereister Melodien verdient. Mehr und mehr gehören auch Stücke aus eigener Feder zum Programm.
Die ‚Stumpfes’ holen sich Jazz, Blues, Folk und die Lieder ihrer ostälbischen Heimat nach Hause und beleben sie mit der bodenlosen Tiefe schwäbischer Mundart. Mit dem Handwerkszeug eines durchgeknallten Orchesters und Texten von markerschütternder Ernstlosigkeit legen sie unschuldig dreinblickend ganze Säle in Lachfalten und viele Seelen in Glück.
Zwischen Mannheim und Allgäu, zwischen Freiburg und der Aalener Heimat ist auch 2009 kaum eine Halle sicher. Ob “allein zu viert“, mit Hannes und dem Bürgermeister oder in der Mäulesmühle: Die ‚Stumpfes’ tragen ihr Herz ins Land, ehrlich, herzhaft und von karstiger Tiefe.

Kas a barh Ploue - France

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Kas a barh est une locution bretonne qui signifie mot à mot "qui amène à l'intérieur". On utilise aussi cette locution pour parler de quelqu'un(e) "quienvoie dedans", traduction littérale qui se dit de quelqu'un(e) de très actif(ve)et qui n'attend pas qu'on le (la) sollicite pour faire du boulot...
Enfin, Kas a barh est le nom donné à une danse du pays vannetais, dérivée de l'En Dro. Elle se danse en cortège de couples et à un moment de la danse, le cavalier qui tient sa cavalière par le petit doigt, conduit celle-ci (d'un mouvement énergique du bras qui décrit un S ) à se retourner vers le couple situé derrière, à faire un pas vers ce couple (qui lui-même en fait autant vers l'arriège du cortège) avant de reprendre la marche vers l'avant.
De Kas a barh on retiendra surtout la notion d'énergie et de dynamisme.
