Gabalier - Konzert am Grossglockner/Kärnten - Österreich

by Diatonic News
Es wurde zünftig unter dem Gipfel des Großglockners: Vor den Kameras von korne.tv und SchauTV spielte Andreas Gabalier auf - und begeisterte im Rahmen der „Großglockner Live“-Sendung mit seiner Ziehharmonika unplugged vor spektakulärer Alpinkulisse

Nach dem Konzert der erste Aufstieg
Kurz danach ging es für den Schlagerstar schon los: Unter den Klängen des Kärntner Liedermarsches der Militärmusik Kärnten erfolgte am Freitagnachmittag der Startschuss für seinen Gipfelsturm. Wetterbedingt ging es bereits einen Tag früher als geplant in Richtung 3798 Meter.

Er sagte: „Ich habe in den letzten Tagen sehr viele Kniebeugen gemacht, aber ein Ruhetag mehr wäre mir noch lieber gewesen. Aber wir werden das meistern“, sagte Gabalier, der sich nervös zeigte: „Ich bin wetterbedingt ein bisserl nervös. Aber ich bin mit den besten Bergführern der Nation unterwegs.“

Über die Adlersruhe (3354), die höchste Schutzhütte Österreichs, hinauf in Serpentinen, über die steile Eisflanke des Glocknerleitls, weiter zum Kleinglockner (3771 m), dann ein kurzer Abstieg in die Glocknerscharte, bis zu den letzten Schritten hinauf zum Kaiserkreuz des Großglockners. Erleben Sie jeden Schritt, jeden Blick dieser Expedition am Weg zum Gipfel.

Es ist die erste Live-Besteigung eines 3000ers in Österreicher. Und noch eine andere Premiere gab es beim TV-Event der Superlative: Zum ersten Mal seit zwei Jahren spielte Musiker Andreas Gabalier mit seiner Band.

Antique Accordion Restoration Course at A World of Accordions Museum – USA

by Diatonic News
Picture above left to right are: Kevin Friedrich, Robin Floyd, Helmi Harrington and Tracy Gibbens.

A World of Accordions Museum (AWAM) curator Helmi Harrington, Ph. D., presented a seminar and course teaching Antique Accordion Restoration at the renowned A World of Accordions Museum in Superior, Wisconsin.

The week long course, one of several in the series, focused on reeds with topics and practical work assignments including identifying dislodged reeds (a common occurrence in antique instruments), removing, cleaning and treating all the reeds, dealing with rust and age related issues, sequencing according to keyboard configuration, cleaning and prepping the reed blocks, reed leather work and finally waxing the reeds back into place. In this seminar, each topic’s complexities paid particular focus to how it applied to antique instruments.

See pictures of the work at: 2021Course

Participants included accordionist and CIA Ambassador and curator of the Accordion Gems Exhibition at the Dargaville Museum in New Zealand Kevin Friedrich and local Symphony Conductor, musician and accordionist Tracey Gibbens. Additional assistance was provided by Museum volunteer Robin Floyd.

During the timeframe of the weeklong course, several of the AWAM Board of Directors met with the Mayor of Superior, Jim Paine. The Mayor is an enthusiastic supporter of his community and has been proactive in recognizing the importance and uniqueness of A World of Accordions Museum in Superior. The Mayor has invited A World of Accordions Museum to display several instruments at the City Hall offices to create awareness of the 2,000 instruments housed in the adjacent World of Accordions Museum. The Mayor was excited to hear that the Museum was the recent recipient of a substantial donation of instruments (350) from a private Washington DC and Paris based collector Alain Papineau. A preliminary display of instruments from these holdings is on display in the Special Exhibits area at the Museum.

Future classes in the series pertaining to antique accordions will include Tuning, Bellows Work, Bass Mechanics and general aesthetics and restoration. For more information please visit www.worldofaccordions.org

Postponed: 14th Harmonica Masters Workshops, 08 -12 June 2022

by Diatonic News
The 14th Harmonica Masters Workshops were originally planned for November 2020, but had to be cancelled due to the COVID pandemic. A free 3 hour Zoom event with all instructors on October 31st, intended as a gesture of thanks to our regular students, was virtually attended by over 150 people from around the world. Now we are looking ahead and have rescheduled the 14th HMW for June 2022.

Organisational changes and the non-availability of the Trossingen Music School in November made it necessary to find a new date, and the Whitsun school holidays are the only viable time when all facilities are not otherwise in use and there are no competing events. We ask for your understanding for this change and hope that the HMW 2022 will be able to take place under something approaching normal conditions.

Following the withdrawal of the Conservatory, Hohner has kindly taken on the local organisation in addition to providing logistical support and sponsoring. Your contact person for registrations and all other administrative questions is Product Manager Ines Weber. The website is now being updated and we will be accepting registrations as soon as this is complete.

The Harmonica Masters workshops 2022 will introduce several new instructors alongside many of our long time staff. Joe Filisko, Marko Jovanovic and I will again be presenting classes and we are happy to announce three new instructors who promise to provide fresh impulses: the irrepressible Jason Ricci will be joining us for the first time to share his vivid insights into contemporary harmonica, Marcos Coll will be teaching an introduction to diatonic and chromatic harmonica in Latin music, and renowned Hohner Affiliated Customizer and Celtic music virtuoso Joel Andersson will present an introduction to the harmonica in Irish music. As in previous years, Eric Noden will teach acoustic blues guitar and Riedel Diegel is again presenting our beginners class. Due to family obligations, David Barrett will be unable to attend in 2022 as originally planned, but promises to be back in 2023.

TANGO MUSIC FESTIVAL 2021 - Austria

by Diatonic News
22. – 24. October 2021

The Festival writes:
We hope to be able to carry out the festival as planned. We will of course create a security concept so that we can make the festival safe. Of course we will comply with all the conditions imposed on us by the authorities. Currently there is no specific limit to the number of participants. Participation in such events is governed by the 3-G rule, i. e. vaccinated, recovered or tested. We do not know whether this will be the case in October. Due to the current development of infection numbers, it is possible that the 1-G rule will then apply, i. e. only vaccinated persons may attend such a large event. We ask you to consider this possible development, which is outside our influence. Those who have not been vaccinated and do not get vaccinated – even with good reason – must expect to be unable to attend this year’s festival. We are very sorry about that, but it is beyond our decision-making power. If the risk of this development is too great, the ticket will be refunded. Please let us know as soon as possible, giving your bank details, info@lalocuratango.at.

We also ask those who are currently on the waiting list to let us know if we should remove them because of this perspective. You can help us find out how many tickets are still available.

We’re almost booked up. There are only very few remaining tickets left. If you are interested, please send us an email. info@lalocuratango.at.

We will only be able to offer day tickets at short notice in October, if we know how many places are still available on one day or another.

SoundBox presents: Andy Cutting - UK

by Diatonic News
Andy Cutting
Sat 30th Oct 2021 from 20-23h
SoundBox presents: Andy Cutting
St Mary's Handbridge Centre, Handbridge, CH4 7HL

Andy Cutting is a rarity. A musician's musician (BBC Radio 2 Folk Award Winner Best Musician 2008, 2011 & 2016): a soulful and technically outstanding melodeon practitioner with an ear for a fine tune. Many of his tunes have been purloined along the way: some considered contemporary classics on the folk scene. But then, Andy is also a warm and emotive performer, modestly engaging his audiences with his self-deprecating wit and then flooring them with downright staggering musicianship.
There are few melodeon players who put so much feeling into their playing, whether it is a set of dance tunes, or accompaniment to a slow English ballad.
Andy has been consistent musical force since he came swiftly to prominence with the innovative Blowzabella. As well as a thorough grounding in the English tradition, Andy's influences extend way beyond these isles, particularly to the music of Central France and to the storming Quebecois tradition. These influences will be well known to all those familiar with Andy's duo with English fiddle player, guitarist and singer, Chris Wood. Wood & Cutting became one of the most influential, and enduring, duos on the scene; paving the way for the explosion of many of today's thrusting young newcomers.
