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.

20. INTERNATIONALE AKKORDEON FESTIVAL 2019 (23.02.-24.03.2019)

by Diatonic News
Akkordeonfestivals WienDie 20. Auflage des Internationalen Akkordeonfestivals Wien verkünden, mit ihren vielen kommenden Attraktionen wie jedes Jahr, die letzten (kalendarischen) Wintertage zu überstehen und den langsam einsetzenden Frühling mit offenen Armen zu empfangen.

20 ausufernde, programmatisch dichte Kulturfeste ganz im Zeichen des Akkordeons. Ein Instrument, in Hoch- und Volkskultur gleichermaßen vertreten, das zu E- und U-Musik ebenso stets etwas zu spielen weiss, wie es bei der Wiener Musik und der Weltmusik souverän mitzureden hat, regionale Dialekte diverser Folkloren ebenso fließend spricht wie die vielen Zungen der globalen Popmusik, mit den Jazzer_innen beseelt jamt und improvisiert, dass es eine wahre Freude ist, und sich dann in der Kammermusik subtil diszipliniert.

Dennoch war im Jahr 2000, als Friedl Preisl das erste Akkordeonfestival umsetzte, nicht abzusehen, dass sich im Zeichen dieses großartigen Instruments eine solche Erfolgsgeschichte entwickeln würde können, als die das Akkordeonfestival Wien heute international wahrgenommen und nicht nur in Wien wertgeschätzt wird.

Dies mag damit zu tun haben, dass beim Akkordeonfestival Wien immer wieder auch die Nähe und Querverbindungen oben aufgeführter Begrifflichkeiten, die tatsächlichen Wahlverwandtschaften vermeintlich unterschiedlicher Genres manifest werden, und es in der Essenz um lebendige Schönheit, um Lebendigkeit und deren in vielen musikalischen Formen wertigen Ausdruck gehen darf.

Beginnerscursus trekharmonica spelen/Jos Lambregts - Holland

by Diatonic News
Jos LambregtsData: maandag 11 februari 2019 (6 lessen).
Tijd: 19-21 uur.
Niveau: beginners.
Stemming instrument: C/F

nhoud: Wilt u graag trekharmonica leren spelen? In deze beginnerscursus van zes lessen leert u uw instrument kennen en eenvoudige melodieën spelen. U leert een melodie spelen op gehoor en met behulp van bladmuziek. U hebt voor dit instrument geen muzikale kennis of ervaring nodig en ook zonder speciaal talent speelt u al snel een deuntje. Toch vraagt ook de trekharmonica doorzettingsvermogen en tijd. Vooral de coördinatie van de rechterhand, die een melodie speelt, en de linkerhand, die de ritmebox bedient, is niet voor iedereen gemakkelijk.

Docent: Jos Lambregts is een enthousiaste trekharmonicaspeelster die van meerdere genres houdt, waaronder Nederlands, Frans en Italiaans. Ze speelt al lange tijd mee met Gezelschap Goet ende Fyn. Bij Jos komt speelplezier op de eerste plaats.

Banda das Crechas and Maija Kauhanen
2 February 2019 7:30PM
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, New Auditorium

Banda das Crechas has the face of a collective universe which we started constructing between us 31 years ago based on conversation, art, live music, the love for our own culture and our curiosity for the strange at “Casa das Crechas”. An open collective; a band 2.0 in which the usual musicians get together with occasional visitors to keep the tradition alive, with the sound and emotion of the ceilidh session. This disc is a recording of one of those nights of song and dance in which Casa das Crechas honours its history converting itself, once more, into the meeting place it has been since the middle of the 19th century

This duo has toured the world, performing in, among others, the USA, Austria, England and Iceland, and has earned acclaim with its unique mix of two different accordions, which together produce a rarely experienced sound.

In 2011 the duo performed for a live DVD and in 2014 released a single.
