PIF-Castelfidardo - Italy

by Diatonic News
PIF 2016 CastelfdardoCastelfidardo is the capital of classical and popular music thanks to its accordion. The PIF was born as a springboard for young people and it is confirming its role of promotion for the accordion as an instrument for all generations and all musical genres. Following this philosophy, we are introducing new categories such as the World Music and a jury of excellent quality, which may also have a role of talent scout.

Castelfidardo oggi è la capitale della musica colta e popolare grazie alla “sua” fisarmonica. Il PIF è nato come trampolino di lancio per i giovani ed è in quella dimensione che intende crescere ulteriormente confermandosi come veicolo di promozione della fisarmonica strumento per tutte le generazioni e per tutti i generi musicali. A questa filosofia si devono l’introduzione di nuove categorie come la World Music e la presenza di una giuria di indiscussa qualità che possa avere un ruolo anche di talent scout.

Open Trekzakfestival Zwolle - Holland

by Diatonic News
Workshops en jammen in een verantwoord park

Vijf mooie workshops tijdens het zevende Opentrekzakfestival in Doepark Nooterhof in Zwolle op 4 september. Helaas kun je ze niet allemaal tegelijk volgen. Want het aanbod dat organisator Jan Kamphuis heeft samengesteld maakt het kiezen moeilijk.

zondag 4 september 2016

Door het volgen van een workshop leer je meer dan tijdens een enkele les, het maakt je los van papier en je leert je instrument beter kennen. Daar gaat het om, om zo op weg te gaan om een stuk mooier, met gevoel en emotie te kunnen spelen. Dit in is belangrijk om het muziekstuk plezierig over te brengen. Dit kost oefenen maar belangrijk is dat je wel moet weten wat je oefent en dat leer je goed tijdens een workshop.
We raden dan ook aan zo veel mogelijk details tijdens de workshop op te nemen en te noteren, zodat je eenmaal thuis gekomen, weet hoe het was en je er verder mee kunt komen.

Goed, deze zaken leer je tijdens het Opentrekzakfestival.nl, waar je tegen de kostprijs met één van de workshops mee kunt doen om je spelen te verrijken.


De volgende workshops worden gegeven:

•Heleen Rook:
Shanty’s – Zemansliederen in C-F, halve dag vanaf begonners.
•Remco Sietsema:
Wereldmuziek – Hedendaags in C-F, midden niveau.
•Wim van der Kolk:
Klassiek op de trekzak in C-F, midden groep
•Mark Söhngen:
Trekhamericana in C-F, vanaf midden groep
•Wil Boonstra:
De Zuidamerikaanse wals in C-F, gevorderden

Kortom er zijn workshops voor elk wat wils, maar wees er snel bij want vol is vol.

Daarnaast is er volop gelegenheid om samen te spelen, te luisteren, een nieuwe trekzak te bespelen of kopen én trekzakspelers te ontmoeten.

Zet maar in je agenda: 4 september

2016 Accordion Noir Festival: Pinata Protest (San Antonio) - Canada/Texas

Video: Piñata Protest - Vato Perron Official Music Video

Concert performance of Pinata Protest "Move the Mess Around" on
Saturday 10th sep 2016 - from 19:30 until 1:00 in PDT

The Wise Hall & Lounge
1882 Adanac Street, Vancouver V5L 2E2

Piñata Protest is an accordion fronted punk rock band from Texas. The San Antonio band’s fusion of Tex-Mex and punk is a fresh sound the LA Weekly hails as “festively energetic,” and NPR alt Latino deems “brilliant” and “mind blowing.” It’s Selena meets Slayer. An intoxicating border mash up of The Ramones and Ramon Ayala.

“This band is manic, Hispanic, accordion driven, and loaded with punk rock attitude. Alvaro Del Norte squeezes and plies the keys of his accordion with frenzied energy, [and] he’s an amazing performer. He leaps about, spins around the stage and even does windmills on his accordion a la Pete Townshend. He exudes charisma from every pore.” (East Portland Blog).

Love Potion Cabaret with Nefertiti in the Kitchen - Canada/Vancouver

by Diatonic News
9th Sept 2016 / 19:30 until 23:00
The York Theatre
639 Commercial Drive, Vancouver V5L 3W3

Nefertiti in the Kitchen (Rennes, France)

An eccentric, multi-lingual cabaret, reverberating with intriguing sounds and punctuated by dream-like sketches. It’s a trip back in time to the roaring twenties and Tom Waits, Marc Perrone and Radiohead are along for the ride. The cabaret is brought to life by singer/actress Jen Rival and one-man-band Nicolas Méheust, the mad inventors of this musical universe in which guitar and accordion share the spotlight and where Kurt Weill himself would feel at home.

It’s an outlandish mix of genres, a musical gem, a whimsical journey. It’s classy like a dame, charming like a poet and crazy like a cartoon character with its fingers stuck in a power socket.

Granny's Attic are a teenage (at this moment) folk trio who met and formed whilst at secondary school in 2009, based in Worcester, UK. They have since been regularly playing a variety of gigs including festivals, local events and gigs across the country. Their passion is in the folk genre. They play a range of English, Irish, Scottish traditional music, as well as their own compositions. Each member plays a diversity of instruments, with the main line-up being melodeon, concertina, guitar, fiddle, mandolin and of course vocals.

The Lady's Cup of Tea by Mary MacNamara's - Ireland

by Diatonic News
Mary's new album (2016). On this album Mary is joined by her daughter Sorcha on fiddle. Mary and Sorcha have been playing music together since Sorcha was a young child. Over the years they have enjoyed an innate understanding of each other’s music.

This recording endeavours to capture the magical empathy that results from such a musical bond. Both Mary and Sorcha also play solo selections on this album.

Sorcha’s brother Pádraig adds to the “family fusion” in his accompaniment on tracks 9 and 14. Geraldine Cotter provides wonderfully sensitive and tasteful accompaniment on all other tracks.

Remembering accordion great Esteban 'Steve' Jordan through video

by Harley Jones
Excerpts from the "TheMonitor.com" article by Eduardo Martinez, published 19th August 2016.

This week’s column, I am recommending several rare treats that feature the late, great Esteban ‘Steve’ Jordan. For those that don’t know, Aug. 13 was the sixth year anniversary of his death.

One of the best musicians the Rio Grande Valley ever produced, and my personal favorite. To those not familiar with the eye-patch wearing accordion player, here are some video and audio I would recommend:

Two features that NPR did on Jordan — The first video is titled “No Rules: The Life & Music of Esteban ‘Steve’ Jordan” (found on Vimeo under that title), and it was done by Latino USA’s senior producer Alex Avila. It’s an hour-long radio documentary that was aired by NPR on Sept. 15, 2008. The second video is from NPR’s ‘All Things Considered,’ titled ‘The Corrido of the World’s Best Accordionist (found on YouTube under that title), and it’s an 8 minute feature by John Burnett.
