What Are You Doing For World Accordion Day? - International

by Harley Jones
What are you doing for World Accordion Day to promote the accordion in your country? World Accordion day is on May 6th, which is the day the accordion was patented in 1829.

World Accordion Day was started in 2009 by the CIA and has been very successful, generating a lot of positive publicity for the accordion. A key part of this event is the World Accordion Day website.

Every association, group, orchestra, performer and teacher, is asked to actively support this event by encouraging national and local accordion activities to happen in their country on this day or the weekend either side of Accordion Day if that should be more convenient.

Everyone can register their World Accordion Day activity on the website and send a report of their event after, for that website.

No event is too big or too small. ALL accordion events celebrating World Accordion Day are welcome. This is a CIA promotion for the accordion in which every accordion enthusiast can participate and help bring our accordion world together as well as strongly promote the accordion.

Paolo Fresu/Daniele di Bonaventura @ Copenhagen Winter Jazz Festival - Italia/Denmark

by Diatonic News
Paolo Fresu/Daniele di Bonaventura
Paolo Fresu (Trumpet/Flugelhorn / IT)
Daniele di Bonaventura (Bandoneon / IT)
8/9/10 February 2018 - Jazzhus Montmartre, København K 20h

The Italian trumpet and flugelhorn player, Paolo Fresu, is one of the most important jazz musicians on the European scene today. He has collaborated with a large part of the European elite as well as top-shelf artists from the US. However, his well-deserved reputation is due to his creative outings as a solo artist and band leader, which has earned him a large following that admires his expansive performances and fine soft tone, which, according to some critics, carries much resemblance to a certain Chet Baker. Paolo Fresu will perform together with fellow countryman, Daniele di Bonaventura, who is a bandoneonist, whose collaborations extend from classical music to contemporary music, from jazz to tango and world music.

Fergie MacDonaldFeb. 3rd, 2018 -

Becoming universally known on first-name terms, not through ego-driven marketing but by popular repute, reverence and affection, happens to very few individuals. And in Scottish music, there’s only one Fergie. The legendary Highland accordionist/bandleader Fergie MacDonald turned 80 in 2017, and the festivities were resounding indeed - so much so that they continue here at Celtic Connections in his final Glasgow appearance.

This celebratory show features Fergie in conversation and reminiscences with Gary Innes, alongside leading admirers like Phil Cunningham and John Carmichael, before he helms a line-up including Allan Henderson, Iain MacFarlane, Addie Harper, Alasdair MacLeod, Hugh MacCallum, Colm O’ Rua and more.

DIE STEIRER KOMMEN … MIT QUETSCHN @ Akkordeonfestival/Vienna

by Diatonic News
QUETSCH'N' VIBES & QUETSCHNKLAMPFA (AT)

Mi/28.2.2018 - 19h / Schutzhaus

Quetschklampfa: Elias Plösch: Gitarre Simon Ankowitsch: Steirische Harmonika, Maximilian Kreuzer: Kontrabass Jonathan Herrgesell: Saxophon
Quetsch 'n' Vibes: Johannes Kölbl: Steirische Harmonika, Perkussion, Leonhard Waltersdorfer: Vibraphon, Perkussion

Zwei Formationen aus der Steiermark machen gemeinsam Musik. Das Quartett Quetschklampfa, das 2007 mit dem Zusammenspiel von Gitarre und Akkordeon seinen Anfang nahm, und das Duo Quetsch´n´Vibes, das eine ganz eigene Mischung aus Volksmusik, Pop und Jazz pflegt. „Kernöl on the road“ nennen die sechs jungen Musiker das gemeinsame Programm, mit dem sie nicht zuletzt versuchen, „die steirische Harmonika aus ihrer Komfortzone zu schubsen.“ Die stilistischen Eigenheiten der Bands erfahren Erweiterung und Veränderung, die Funktionen der jeweiligen Instrumente werden von Lied zu Lied neu definiert. Auch außergewöhnlichen Ideen und Elemente verschiedenster Genres werden innovativ und zugänglich zugleich dem neuen Bandklang einverleibt. Letztlich bleibt musikalisch „kein Kürbiskern auf dem anderen“, wie das Neo-Sextett augenzwinkernd eine Ambition dieses Projekts beschreibt.

Elefant Session @ Celtic Connection - Scotland/Glasgow

by Diatonic News
Elefant Session
2 February 2018 9:30PM
Old Fruitmarket/Glasgow

Crowned as Up and Coming Act of the Year at the 2014 Scots Trad Music Awards, young Highland quintet The Elephant Sessions have since more than lived up to that promise, honing their high-octane fusion of folk, funk, rock and electronica into a behemoth big-stage sound, and winning hordes of new fans at major festivals including Glastonbury, Tønder and Lorient. 2017’s rave-reviewed second album, All We Have Is Now, further amped up their signature synthesis of warp-speed fiddle/mandolin tunes, monstrous grooves and bold sonic textures, adding dashes of metal, jazz and Balkan influence.




Equally adventurous in spirit, Ireland’s Notify are another instrumental five-piece, who’ve been turning heads both sides of the Pond with their daring yet sensitive alloy of Irish trad and contemporary jazz, featuring concertina, guitars, keyboards, bass and drums, plus samples, loops and programming. “A fascinating cocktail, full of flavour and quite intoxicating.” (Irish Music Magazine)

To keep tradition alive he continues to sing many traditional zydeco songs in French as well as writing many new ones of his own
