Sounding Out the Accordion

New Ideas for Accordion Fashionists - Worldwide

by Diatonic News
The 2022 has started and the world is seeking for new fashion ideas - here some help, if needed!

Appropriately titled 'Instruments played in the street corner,' the Xiaoping Huang Graduate Collection looks like it is comprised of outfits made out of accordion parts. Quirky and not a bit bizarre, the fashion is as creative as it gets. Taking a strong 3D approach, the recent University of Central Lancashire fashion graduate focuses on bright colors, bold prints and unusual textures to make a fashion statement like no other.

The winner of the Zandra Rhodes Textile Award, the Xiaoping Huang Graduate Collection was inspired by an accordion the designer found in a flea market. She then turned to contemporary street musicians’ paintings to better flesh out her concepts, creating ensembles fit for a traveling circus. Huang is currently promoting her graduate collection in London, England.

This award was given already 10 years ago, but as we say: fashion always comes back ;-)

World Accordion Day - What are you Doing? - International

by Diatonic News
World Accordion Day header
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.

Due to new COVID-restrictions - let us know, if you instead of live-events plan some online activities - we are happy to report

23. INTERNATIONALES AKKORDEON FESTIVAL 2022 - Vienna

by Diatonic News
Frield Preisl and Franziska Hatz
The 2022 Edition of the Internation Accordion Festival in Vienna is scheduled for the time between the 19.02.-20.03.2022.

The organizers, Friedl Preisl and Franziska Hatz are giving absolute preferenze to live-events than streaming performances and state as follows:

Not sure at any time whether all programmed events will be able to take place, but nevertheless a dense and exciting program has been planned. On the one hand, there are concerts that were already booked for the Accordion Festival 2021, which did not take place, but had to fallen victim to the Covid circumstances and restrictions.

In addition, the Festival is celebrating Astor Piazzolla's 101st birthday in March 2022 for reasons of circumstance, round anniversaries are usually overestimated anyway ... Piazzolla's importance for music and especially that played with the accordion/bandoneon cannot be emphasized enough at any time anyway!

The MAIN FOCUS AUSTRIA remains as self-evident as it is necessary, since international artists are currently almost inevitably absent. The richness of the local musical landscape has always been an essential, always exciting and diverse component of the Festival programs.

Download festival program here: 2022Akkordeonfestival.pdf
The 2022 is fully planned and with many interesting events to be looked up at:

Archie’s Box Academy (Getting Better) - UK

by Diatonic News
Archie Churchill-Moss
Monday 21 Feb 2pm–4:30pm, 2022

Archie Churchill-Moss to continue with Halsway’s once-a-month box club.

Now in term two, Archie’s ‘Getting Better’ workshops aim to support and develop the skills of Improver and Intermediate level melodeon players in enjoyable workshop sessions. Each 2.5 hour session will present a new challenge, with time for individual help to support less confident / less advanced players and to stretch more ambitious / more accomplished musicians. You’ll be learning new tunes and techniques each month, while also developing a working knowledge of music theory, and your own creativity as the course progresses.

Archie Churchill-Moss: Widely regarded as one of the best players of English traditional folk, Archie has worked as a session musician for some of the UK’s top folk acts (Cara Dillon, Eliza Carthy, Blair Dunlop), as well as performing with the trio, ‘Moore, Moss, Rutter’ , the outfit which saw him receive the coveted BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2011.

The past two years have seen Archie tour extensively across Western Europe and perform at some of Europe’s top music festivals, including headline slots at ‘Colours of Ostrava (Czech Republic), Tønder festival (Denmark), Cropredy Convention (UK) and Cambridge folk festival (UK).

Celtic Connections Festival - Scotland

by Diatonic News
Celtic Connections Festival - Scotland
20 Jan - 6 Feb 2022

“If there’s one thing that makes wintertime in Glasgow great then it’s Celtic Connections.” The Guardian
Glasgow’s annual folk, roots and world music festival celebrates its connections to cultures across the globe. From 20 January - 6 February 2022, over 2,100 musicians from around the world bring the city to life for 18 days. During that time, there are concerts, ceilidhs, talks, art exhibitions, workshops, and free events.

Creative Director Donald Shaw programmes more than 300 events across multiple genres of music. The festival is renowned for its ability to bring together one-off line-ups for special collaborative shows. The camaraderie between musicians continues late into the night at the Festival Club - home to legendary musical collaborations and spontaneous sessions.

“There are situations that you’ll see where people are playing that you’ll never see again, or if you do, it’s because it worked here first.” Donald Shaw, Creative Director

The festival has also curated key parts of the cultural programme for major international events, including:

Ryder Cup Chicago
Ryder Cup Gleneagles
London 2012 Olympics
Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games
European Championships 2018
In 2015 the festival won the Art and Culture Award at the Inspiring City Awards ceremony. The event was organised by the Herald and Glasgow Chamber of Commerce in association with People Make Glasgow. The awards were created to celebrate the people and organisations that make Glasgow great.

In 2021, due to Covid-19, the festival went online for the very first time. Over 100,000 people tuned in from 65 countries to watch over 10.5 million minutes of content across 19 days.

MARÍA DE BUENOS AIRES im Landestheater/Tirol - Austria

by Diatonic News
Santiago Cimadevilla04.02.2022 - 19.30 bis 21.45 Uhr
Tiroler Landestheater & Orchester GmbH Innsbruck
Rennweg 2 . 6020 Innsbruck
T +43 512 52074

Santiago Cimadevilla - bandoneonist, composer, arranger was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He played guitar from a young age and studied classical piano at the Conservatorio Municipal Manuel de Falla.
In the Netherlands he studied bandoneon at the Rotterdam Conservatory with Victor Villena and Leo Vervelde. After his graduation concert he was awarded with a prize from the Foundation Friends of the Rotterdam Conservatory for outstanding study results and artistic quality.

In 1968 Astor Piazzolla composed his only opera as a declaration of love to the tango and his home town. Through the figure of María, the tango, which stands for a whole attitude to life and world-weariness, takes on a form of its own. The Tango Nuevo developed by Piazzolla is brilliantly presented in his Operita (= little opera), which is based on the highly symbolic, highly musical poetry of the Uruguayan lyricist and tango historian Horacio Ferrer. The floating feeling of the tango, which results from the tension between closeness and distance as well as melancholy and beauty, becomes the narrative of the story.

The Fureys concert - Killarney/IE

by Diatonic News
The Fureys
Venue: Gleneagle INEC Arena
Killarney, Co.Kerry, Ireland
5th Feb 2022 - 20:30

The Fureys
The Furey's have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 38 years, audiences that have included former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Former Irish President Mary McAleese and the late Pope John Paul while Tony Blair has publicly stated his favourite peace song of all time is the Furey's “Green Fields of France”. Recently Ireland President Michael D Higgins attended their concert in Dublin’s National Concert Hall. The band was formed in 1978 literally by accident. George, Paul and Davey were playing in Denmark with their own band called the Buskers and Eddie and Finbar, while touring in Germany were involved in a road accident. When George and Paul got news of the accident they immediately travelled to Germany to be with their brothers. They then decided that they should all be playing together and this was the start of the Furey's. The Furey's are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly. Their emotive songs stir many emotions….tears and laughter, sadness and joy.

CD "sing" by Folkshilfe - Austria

by Harley Jones
CD FOLKSHILFE have long since ceased to be an insider tip in the German-speaking music scene. Since their Ö3 hits “Mir laungts” and “Hey Du”, their unmistakable style has become known in the most remote corners of Austria. Their successful run was highlighted in 2018 by winning the Amadeus Music Award as Songwriter of the Year. Their uplifting popsongs are characterized by their use of accordeon and synthesizer.

In 2019 they were co-headliners at the Donauinselfest and heated up the crowd at Nova Rock.
