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.

11th Annual Kevin Friedrich and Friends Dargaville Museum Concert - New Zealand

by Heather Masefield
Kevin Friedrich
Kevin Friedrich and Friends PosterThe Lighthouse Function Center in Dargaville, New Zealand was filled to capacity for the 11th Annual Afternoon of Music with Kevin Friedrich and Friends, a variety Show featuring accordionists and entertainers from throughout New Zealand. The show called 'A Touch of Kiwi' featured a variety of music, including quite a few items of New Zealand interest.

The concert host Kevin Friedrich performed a variety of accordion works plus a delightful original suite of four pieces called "Rehutai..... a view from the end of the Road" using the Kauri Diatonic.

Composed by Kevin Friedrich, the piece is inspired by the rural road Rehutai (Sea Spray in Maori), the place where Kevin grew up, a road which runs parallel to the spectacular coast line of the West Coast of New Zealand near Dargaville.

A local Dargaville odysee, the piece 'Rehutai... a view from the end of the Road' depicts four tales from the windy road found parallel to the coast line near Baylys Beach on the West Coast of the northern part of New Zealand.

(1) Dawn's Waltz tells of the frequent visits of the cheeky native New Zealand Fantail birds searching for bugs on the windows. Leaving little marks, they were in turn transcribed onto manuscript, turning into this lovely waltz dedicated to Dawn Taylor and her late husband Laurie, residents of Rehutai Road since 1957.

(2) Charlie's Return is the story of a solo Californian Quail who often strutted through, sometimes pausing to sing out his signature call. The distinctive call of the bird is heard during the March.

(3) Sunset on Trig Hill, An Evening Prayer is inspired by the stunning sunsets from this panoramic high point. Trig Hill is the highest point in the area, offering unparalelled views of more than 50 miles of ocean, the mountains and back to the Dargaville township.

(4) Rehutai, a Jig, is the final piece of the set and takes the listener on a journey down this windy metal road, the lifetime location of the Friedrich family farms.

Picture below: The unique diatonic Kauri accordion has a most interesting history and here you can see the bellows with the inlay of a New Zealand silver fern. You can see more about this International project between New Zealand and Finland by reviewing the Kauri Diatonic story.

Duo Rodríguez Franceschini
Sunday 15th April 2018 - 15h

Duo Rodriguez Franceschini is the musical project created by Ramón Rodriguez (Pan de Capazo) and Emanuel Franceschini (Trikosis), longtime friends and neighbours for a little less in this peculiar natural place, which is the Hof van Wezel.

Here life is somewhat calmer, we build our houses and common spaces with wood and recycled material. There is space for forests, orchards and horses and children can run freely going from house to house. This is where the melodies of the DRF come to life and little by little they acquire their final form, as if they themselves decided how they want to be played.

ELANOR/Bal Folk @ Folkarria - Spain/Belgium

by Diatonic News
ElanorFriday 13th April 2018 / 12h

Elanor is a young Belgian folk group with roots in Ghent.

In May of 2013, five seasoned musicians put their instruments together. A steaming accordion, a solid and sound hurdy-gurdy, virtuosic bagpipes and swinging flutes served in a spicy broth of bass and guitar. The music is energetic, easy to dance to and innovative with traditional elements. Original compositions and arrangements also allow a sitting audience to swing with pleasure.

Bert Leemans (EmBRUN, Les Boîtes, Triple-X, Variomatic) and Bart Praet have known each other for years as fellow musical countrymen. One melody after another emerged from Bart’s bagpipes and flutes. Bert eagerly caught the melodies and secretly stored them between the panels of his accordion. Some time later Bert shared the stage with Thomas Hoste (Cecilia). Presumably both hurdy-gurdy devotees stood listening to a mouth watering French hurdy-gurdy group... with a lot of desire to start working together. The three gentlemen met, the seed of Elanor had sprouted! The trio was immediately reinforced by a finely tuned DADGAD guitar, played by the keen and young scion Kuni Quintens. Jelle Van Cleemputte (Les Bandits de Belleville) ensures with his jazzy bass lines that the drone violence is enveloped in beautiful harmonies.

In 2013, Elanor launched a demo CD, rather as a business card to organizers. The first full CD "A Clear Look" came in the spring of 2016.
