Spielberg Musikfestival - Austria

by Diatonic News
24. bis 28. August 2016: Spielberg Musikfestival geht in die vierte Saison – Open Air am Red Bull-Ring: Hubert von Goisern, LaBrassBanda, Herbert Pixner-Projekt, Folkshilfe – Hochkarätige Künstler bieten grenzenlosen Musikgenuss – Jetzt Tickets sichern .

Mit Hubert von Goisern, Meister der Weltmusik und Volksmusikerneuerer, „Entstauber“ und Individualist, wird das Open Air am Red Bull Ring – übrigens eines seiner wenigen Konzerte 2016 – im kommenden Jahr zum ganz besonderen Hörerlebnis. Der musikalische Botschafter Österreichs bietet Alpenrock vom Feinsten – von der druckvollen Rocknummer über den schwungvollen Countrysong bis hin zur herzschweren Ballade. Er fordert sein Publikum heraus, voller Ideen und Energie – eben „alles Goisern“.

„LaBrassBanda“, die Live-Sensation aus dem Chiemgau, sind keine Neulinge beim Spielberg Musikfestival. Bereits 2015 begeisterte die etwas andere Blasmusikkapelle die Besucher mit musikalischer Energie. Festival-Intendant Herbert Pixner wird wie in den Vorjahren mit seinem „Herbert Pixner Projekt“ auf der Bühne stehen. Die vier Vollblutmusiker überraschen immer wieder mit außergewöhnlichen Eigenkompositionen und atemberaubenden Improvisationen. Das Trio der „Folkshilfe“ versteht es, mit seiner Musik Menschen aller Altersgruppen in seinen Bann zu ziehen. Bei ihren Live-Auftritten muss getanzt, geschwitzt und mitgesungen werden. Eröffnet wird das Open Air am Red Bull Ring wieder von den Gewinnern des „MyStage Bandcontest“.

Fünf Tage Musikerlebnis
Das Spielberg Musikfestival am Red Bull Ring zelebriert – ganz nach dem Motto „Laut & Leise“ – auch 2016 wieder eine außergewöhnliche kulturelle Bandbreite. Modern inszenierte Volksmusik bringt traditionelle Elemente und Zeitgeist zusammen: Bei Workshops erhalten die Teilnehmer von Mittwoch bis Freitag wertvolle Tipps von namhaften Referenten. Im Rahmen des „Erlebnis Volksmusik“ wird am Freitag in verschiedenen Häusern des Projekt Spielberg ein Abend mit Musik und Tanz geboten. Am Samstag, beim Open Air am Red Bull Ring, das von den „MyStage Bandcontest“-Gewinnern eröffnet wird, kommen Liebhaber der alpenländischen Volksmusik voll auf ihre Kosten. Der beliebte Familiensonntag, der mit einer Feldmesse eröffnet wird, rundet das Festival für Musikfreunde ab: Zahlreiche Musikgruppen sorgen für gute Stimmung, regionale Aussteller und Handwerker geben Einblicke in ihre Arbeit und präsentieren ihre Werke. Bei Oldtimer-Fahrten begeben sich die Besucher auf eine Reise in die Vergangenheit. Die kleinen Gäste können sich bei unterschiedlichsten Attraktionen vergnügen, spielen und sich austoben. Gemeinsam mit ihren Eltern genießen sie zudem hervorragende Musik und herzhafte Schmankerl – ein Familientag, bei dem Jung und Alt voll auf ihre Kosten kommen.

„MyStage Bandcontest“: Einmalige Chance für Nachwuchstalente.
Von Beginn an sieht sich das Spielberg Musikfestival als Förderer und Plattform für aufstrebende junge Talente. Aufgrund der äußerst positiven Resonanz findet 2016 zum zweiten Mal der „MyStage Bandcontest“ statt. Nachwuchskünstler haben die Möglichkeit, sich mit Hörproben oder Videos zu bewerben. Eine Vorauswahl wird die Fachjury unter der Leitung des Festivalintendanten Herbert Pixner treffen. Anschließend wird das Publikum per Online-Voting entscheiden, wer das Open Air am Red Bull Ring am Samstag, 27. August 2016, eröffnen wird.

Billy McComiskey’s AFC Fellowship Award, Washington DC - USA

by Rob Howard
Video: To celebrate the AFC’s 40-year connection with Billy McComiskey, he was invited to headline a concert on June 28th featuring his sons Patrick, Sean, and Mikey, his nieces Catriona and Angela Fee, and his friends Myron Bretholz and Josh Dukes. Presented as part of the Library of Congress American Folklife Center’s Homegrown: The Music of America series. Kennedy Center, Published: Jun 28, 2016.

The American Folklife Center has congratulated Billy McComiskey, one of the USA’s top button accordion players in Irish traditional music, for winning a 2016 National Heritage Fellowship award. The Fellowship is in recognition for a lifetime of excellence in a traditional art form, and is the highest honor in the folk and traditional arts in the United States.

Billy McComiskey, from New York, has long been widely regarded as one of the leading Irish traditional musicians. His fame and music have been the subject of a doctoral dissertation, which is soon to be published as a book.

Billy’s award is special for the AFC as he is among the people who have been associated with the Center for all 40 years of its existence. On January 2nd 1976, President Ford signed into law the American Folklife Preservation Act, which the Congress had previously passed. It established the American Folklife Center in the Library of Congress with the mission to preserve and present American folklife. One of the first things the Librarian of Congress, Dr. Daniel Boorstin, did was to throw a party to celebrate the new Center, involving many leading Irish musicians, including a group called The Irish Tradition, featuring Billy McComiskey.

Passing of Bud Hyrczyk - USA

by Rita Davidson Barnea
AWW is sorry to report the passing of the versatile polka musician Bud Hyrczyk. From the news report by Jeff Himler: From his native Yukon to California and Europe, Bud Hyrczyk's music got people dancing.

A skilled player of keyboard instruments and the button box accordion from an early age, he was known for Slovenian-style polka music while leading the Yukon Button Box Club and in his recent solo recordings. Known as “Bud” since childhood, Lotsie J. Hyrczyk Jr., 67, of Russell Springs, Ky., died Friday, July 22, 2016, in Baptist Health Louisville after experiencing organ failure.

According to younger brother, Mike, of Yukon in South Huntingdon, Mr. Hyrczyk picked up a love of Slovenian music from their grandparents and was playing professionally with Greensburg-area musicians in his mid-teens.

As a young adult, Mr. Hyrczyk started a family band, Bud Hyrczyk and the Sounds of Time, that included his brother on strings.
“Mostly we were booked for weddings because of the ethnicity of the music,” Mike Hyrczyk said. “My brother was always very sociable onstage or offstage. He kept the good times going. He knew how to reach a crowd.”

In the early 1980s, Mr. Hyrczyk founded and directed the Yukon Button Box Club, whose eight members included his uncle and fellow accordionist Don Leskosek of West Newton. According to Leskosek, “The rest of us just played by ear, but Bud played by the notes. We were one of the best bands around because we had a good director.”

Tours took the band to Michigan and California, and even to Slovenia and Switzerland. Leskosek recalled one of their most popular numbers was “Toot, Toot, Tootsie,” an old Al Jolson song that his nephew recast as a polka.

Also an able singer, Mr. Hyrczyk went on to write, arrange and record original music. His latest album, “Livin' The Dream,” won a top award last year on a polka webcasting site. Mr. Hyrczyk's music is featured on the soundtracks of two recently produced independent films, “1/1” and “Dig Two Graves,” that were written or co-written by son Jeremy Phillips of Los Angeles.

Retired as a financial planner for Prudential Insurance Company of America, Mr. Hyrczyk was a member of the National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame. A Corvette enthusiast, he loved to cook Italian dishes.

In addition to his brother, Mike, survivors include his wife, Sandra; four children, Amy Busch and her husband, Regis, of Jeannette; Jeremy Phillips and wife, Jen, of Los Angeles; Jennifer Bloom and husband, Corby, of Texas; and Sabrina Barnett and husband, Mark, of Russell Springs; and six grandchildren. A memorial service was held on July 30, 2016 Saturday at the Harrold Zion Lutheran Church, Greensburg. Interment was private. Bernard Funeral Home, 367 Main St., Russell Springs, was in charge of arrangements.

Joe Derrane (1930-2016), Massachessetts - USA

by Rob Howard
Video: Excerpt from "As Played by Joe Derrane (1995)", a documentary about accordion player Joe Derrane of Randolph, MA. Produced by Frank Ferrel. Edited by Julie Eddy. Part of the Massachusetts Folk Arts Archive.

Joe Derrane, the son of Irish immigrants, is widely regarded as one of the greats of Irish traditional music. Born and raised in Boston, Massachessetts, his father played the button accordion and his mother the fiddle, and at the age of 10, young Joe began playing a one-row diatonic button accordion, taught by Jerry O'Brien, an immigrant from County Cork, Ireland.

By the age of 14 Derrane was performing at house parties on the thriving Boston Irish scene. He switched to a 2-row D/C# accordion, and soon became a leading musician in the Irish dance halls, which in the late 1940s led him to playing on radio broadcasts and making records. He was much admired for his lively, accurate and highly ornamented playing.

By the late 1950s the Irish dance halls locally were closing down, so Derrane switched to piano accordion and formed a band to play for weddings and functions, moving away from Irish music and instead playing popular selections as well as Italian and Jewish traditional music. In the mid-1970s Derrane moved to playing the electronic organ. He retired from music in 1990.

In 1993 Rego Records reissued some of Joe Derrane’s original 78 rpm recordings from the 1940s on a CD, ‘Irish Accordion’. These recordings generated considerable interest, and Derrane began playing the button accordion again and was invited to perform as a special guest at the 1994 Irish Folk Festival in Washington, D.C.

His virtuosic performances (accompanied by Felix Dolan on piano) were greeted with overwhelming enthusiasm and acclaim, and Joe Derrane embarked on a second career as a button accordionist. He subsequently recorded two solo albums, ‘Give Us Another’ (1994) and ‘Grove Lane’ (2010), and four collaboration albums with other players, appeared on radio and TV many times, including ‘The Pure Drop’ on Irish TV RTE.

He was the subject of a documentary by Frank Ferrel, ‘As Played By Joe Derrane’, and on another broadcast by Irish-language station TG4 as part of its ‘Sé mo laoch’ series. Joe toured Canada, Switzerland and the Netherlands, and appeared with The Chieftains at the Boston Symphony Hall.

In 1998 Joe Derrane was inducted into the Hall of Fame of Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann for his contribution to Irish traditional music.

Joe Derrane, married with grandchildren, died on July 22nd 2016 in Randolf, Massachessetts, at the age of 86.

100th Anniversary of the Birth of Lasse Pihlajamaa (1916-2007) - Finland

by Kimmo Mattila

Video 2: One of his famous compositions Nuoruusmuistoja.

The 100th anniversary of the birth of Lasse Pihlajamaa (1916-2007) is celebrated in Finland in several concerts, exhibitions and events. Lasse Pihlajamaa (1916-2007) was a Finnish accordionist, composer-arranger, teacher, entertainer and world-class accordion comedian and father of a range of accordion models.

He was born on the 1st August 1916 in Jämijärvi, in a small village in Western Finland.

He was the pioneer of Finnish accordion music. As a composer he was searching for the musical and technical limits of the instrument as early as the 1940's, when 'The Dance of the Wind', 'The Dragonfly', 'Variations in Minor' and many other compositions were written, one generation ahead of their time. Picture left, 1942. Picture right, 1986.

Teaching in his own Accordion Institute in Helsinki from 1957 to 1972, Lasse Pihlajamaa had a crucial impact in the professional pedagogy of accordion playing. Due to his work, in 1977 the accordion began being accepted in several major conservatories including the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki.

Lasse Pihlajamaa is described as one of the leading figures in modern Finnish (and Nordic) accordion art. Lasse Pihlajamaa passed away 14th November 2007 in Helsinki.

Trekzakfestival Enkhuizen - Holland

by Diatonic News
Het wordt zondag 7 augustus vanaf 13:00 uur weer een dag vol wisseltonigheid rond de oude binnenstad van Enkhuizen. In een omgeving waar de trekzak zo mooi tot haar recht komt. Helemaal ‘feng shui’, zoals de chinezen dat noemen.

zondag 7 augustus 2016

Trek rond!

Er is wel een dringend verzoek: blijf niet langer dan een half uur op dezelfde plek spelen: ook de omstanders en aanpalende horeca houden van variatie.

Dit jaar is de ontvangst geregeld in het restaurant van het station van Enkhuizen. Het NS-station ligt aan de Oude Haven en de Buyshaven (postcode 1601 EN). Bart, de uitbater, heeft de gehele dag zijn restaurant (en terras) ter beschikking gesteld.

Cat in the Corner met André Visser aan de trekzak verzorgt na de maaltijd een avondoptreden.

5 TAGE CHROMATISCHE MUNDHARMONIKA IM AUGUST - Österreich

by Diatonic News
Die chromatische Mundharmonika

Kursleitung: Isabella Krapf

Fast jede und jeder hat eine in der Lade und fast jede und jeder hat auch schon einmal versucht, darauf zu spielen. Die wenigsten wissen aber, was tatsächlich in diesem kleinen Wunderwerk steckt. Isabella wird Teilnehmer davon überzeugen, dass mit der chromatischen Mundharmonika – sie ist übrigens das einzige Ateminstrument der Welt – wirklich fast alles möglich ist.

Anhand eines einfachen Zahlensystems kann man auch ohne Vorkenntnisse sofort anfangen und kommt ganz schnell in den Genuss, auch ohne Notenkenntnisse erste Melodien zu spielen. Mit der richtigen Atemtechnik ist praktisch “alles” – vom Blues über den Tango bis hin zu Westernmelodien möglich.

KURSLEITUNG
Isabella Krapf spielt seit ihrer Kindheit mit Leidenschaft Mundharmonika und hat sie schließlich sogar zu ihrem Beruf gemacht. Die beiden machen ganz schön viel gemeinsam: Auftritte, Unterricht, Ausstellungen zum Thema, bis hin zu Reparaturarbeiten am Instrument. Isabellas Unterrichtsmethode ist geprägt von der Vermittlung der richtigen Atemtechnik und einer unglaublich facettenreichen Tongebung. Ihre Seminar- und Konzerttätigkeit hat sie und ihre Mundharmonika sogar für mehrere Jahre bis nach Nordkorea geführt.

TERMIN MO, 22. August, 19 Uhr, bis FR, 26. August 2016, 13 Uhr
KURSBEITRAG 290,-

TERMIN FR, 9. Dezember, 19 Uhr, bis SO, 11. Dezember 2016, 13 Uhr – anmelden

Bud Hyrczyk (1949 - 2016)

by Harley Jones
Bud HyrczykVersatile polka musician toured in U.S., Europe
by Jeff Himler, Trib Live, Friday, July 29, 2016,

From his native Yukon to California and Europe, Bud Hyrczyk's music got people dancing,

A skilled player of keyboard instruments and the button box accordion from an early age, he was known for Slovenian-style polka music while leading the Yukon Button Box Club and in his recent solo recordings.

Known as “Bud” since childhood, Lotsie J. Hyrczyk Jr., 67, of Russell Springs, Ky., died Friday, July 22, 2016, in Baptist Health Louisville after experiencing organ failure.

According to younger brother, Mike, of Yukon in South Huntingdon, Mr. Hyrczyk picked up a love of Slovenian music from their grandparents and was playing professionally with Greensburg-area musicians in his mid-teens.

As a young adult, Mr. Hyrczyk started a family band, Bud Hyrczyk and the Sounds of Time, that included his brother on strings.

“Mostly we were booked for weddings because of the ethnicity of the music,” Mike Hyrczyk said. “My brother was always very sociable onstage or offstage. He kept the good times going. He knew how to reach a crowd.”

In the early 1980s, Mr. Hyrczyk founded and directed the Yukon Button Box Club, whose eight members included his uncle and fellow accordionist Don Leskosek of West Newton. According to Leskosek, “The rest of us just played by ear, but Bud played by the notes. We were one of the best bands around because we had a good director.”

Tours took the band to Michigan and California, and even to Slovenia and Switzerland. Leskosek recalled one of their most popular numbers was “Toot, Toot, Tootsie,” an old Al Jolson song that his nephew recast as a polka.

Also an able singer, Mr. Hyrczyk went on to write, arrange and record original music. His latest album, “Livin' The Dream,” won a top award last year on a polka webcasting site.

Mr. Hyrczyk's music is featured on the soundtracks of two recently produced independent films, “1/1” and “Dig Two Graves,” that were written or co-written by son Jeremy Phillips of Los Angeles.

Retired as a financial planner for Prudential Insurance Company of America, Mr. Hyrczyk was a member of the National Cleveland-Style Polka Hall of Fame. A Corvette enthusiast, he loved to cook Italian dishes.

In addition to his brother, Mike, survivors include his wife, Sandra; four children, Amy Busch and her husband, Regis, of Jeannette; Jeremy Phillips and wife, Jen, of Los Angeles; Jennifer Bloom and husband, Corby, of Texas; and Sabrina Barnett and husband, Mark, of Russell Springs; and six grandchildren.

A memorial service will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday in Harrold Zion Lutheran Church, Greensburg. Interment will be private.

OPEN AIR KONZERT mit Hubert von Goisern - Austria

by Diatonic News
Samstag, 27.08.2016 / Ort: Red Bull Ring
Open Air Konzert / Uhrzeit: ab 17 Uhr
Spielberg bei Knittlfeld

Hubert von Goisern hat den Blues. Hubert von Goisern hat auch: die Vielfarbigkeit und die flirrende Energie von New Orleans. Dieses spezielle Südstaatengefühl. Und das alles balanciert er auf der Basis seiner eigenen Tradition, die zwar geografisch aus den Alpen kommt, faktisch aber die ganze Welt in einer musikalischen Idee ist. Goisern war auf Musiksuche im Süden der USA. Und das, was er mitgebracht hat, ist stimmig, von der druckvollen Rocknummer über den schwungvollen Countrysong bis hin zur herzensschweren Ballade. PedalSteel und Stromgitarre, Cajun und Ziehharmonika. Alles ist Goisern.

F.Infos und Ticketbestellung: https://www.projekt-spielberg.com/musikfestival/hubert-von-goisern.html

„Federn“ ist ein leichtes Spiel. Denn die Rhythmen der Country- und Bluegrassmusik müssen nicht mit heißer Nadel an die österreichische Klangbasis gestrickt werden. Sie passen einfach – als wäre es nie anders gewesen. Seltsam, wie Hubert von Goisern das immer wieder fertig bringt: man fühlt sich in der Welt zu Hause.



Zum Künstler

Hubert von Goisern ist seit mehr als 25 Jahren auf den Bühnen Europas unterwegs – als musikalischer Botschafter Österreichs, als Volksmusikerneuerer, als Entstauber und Individualist. Ganz einfach: als er selbst. Hubert von Goisern hat nie das gemacht, was von ihm erwartet wurde, und war damit konsequent erfolgreich. Von den Anfängen als Alpenrocker mit dem „Hiatamadl“ über seine Expeditionen nach Tibet und Afrika, die Linz-Europa-Tour auf einem umgebauten Lastschiff bis zum bahnbrechenden Erfolg von „Brenna tuats guat“. Noch immer steckt Hubert von Goisern voller Ideen und Energie, er bleibt neugierig und fordert sein Publikum heraus. Jedes Mal aufs Neue. Das ist wahrhaftig. Das begeistert.

GlamourTango performing in Argentina

by Diatonic News
Shinjoo Cho bandonenGlamourTango, a group showcasing female artists in Tango, will perform on August, 2016


Shinjoo Cho is the group's bandoneonist. She is also a pianist and accordionist and a versatile solo and ensemble musician embodying many musical traditions. Her musical path began with piano in her native Korea at the age of five. After immigrating to the US in 1991, she continued her study with Peter Coraggio in Hawaii and later with Ingrid Clarfield in Princeton, New Jersey, where she studied piano performance and pedagogy at the Westminster Choir College. During this time, she won numerous scholarships and competition prizes and performed at the Carnegie Hall. Shinjoo traveled to Serbia for an immersion in Balkan music and studied bandoneón in Argentina.

She has collaborated with international music, dance, and film artists in multidisciplinary projects. Equally at home with classical music, she participated in the Marlboro Music Festival under the direction of Leon Fleisher and performed with the Cleveland Orchestra in 2012 at the Severance Hall.

Currently, Shinjoo splits her time between Buenos Aires, Argentina and the US, performing extensively as a bandoneonist and pianist. She is a principal bandoneonist and assistant director of Orquesta Tipica La Hannibal and in May 2015, she performed as a solo pianist at the inauguration of Centro Cultural Kirchner, which was broadcast live on Argentine national television.

The Wild Catahoulas performing at the Cotati Festival - USA

by Diatonic News
PERFORMING AT THE 2016 CAF/Cotati
SATURDAY AUGUST 20, 2016
5:30-7:00 at the Polka Tent

The Wild Catahoulas is that unique Cajun/ Zydeco band in the North Bay, merging traditional Cajun French two-steps and waltzes from Southwestern Louisiana with contemporary Zydeco and New Orleans sounds. In other words, a GREAT dance band.

Joining us in Cotati will be guest accordion master Andrew Carriere, of the legendary Carriere Family of Lake Charles, Louisiana. Andrew adds real Cajun flavor to the mix of fine musicians: Gus Garelick on fiddle (an original member of Jim Boggio’s Sonoma Swamp Dogs), Allegra Broughton and Sam Page, vocals, guitar and bass (best known from their group Solid Air), and Don Connolly on drums (a member of the Sonoma County Love Choir). Great players, great music! Laissez les bon temps roulez!

*The Catahoula is the official state dog of Louisiana: hard-working and bi-lingual
