Sväng Harmonica in January - Germany/Luxembourg

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Svàng Harmonica Quartet/Finland
"Harmonica Ensemble" may not immediately inspire thoughts of high art or serious music-making, but Sväng, founded in 2003, have proved to the disbelievers that this tiny instrument can be very expressive and that its potential is, in fact, unlimited!
With a dynamic, energetic stage presence and a repertoire of original music composed by the group themselves, Sväng are set to dazzle and delight listeners the world over. In their music, Slavic melancholy is bolstered by a compulsive rhythmic groove which betrays the groups' love of music of all stripes.
Sväng's debut album, released in 2004, was an instant success and has already achieved fame around the world. Following successful tours around the USA, Germany, France, Holland, Belgium, Austria, Hungary, Spain, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Mexico, UK Japan, China and Croatia, including many radio and television appearances, in March 2008 Sväng released their album Jarruta. The third album Schladtzshe! will be released fall 2010. In addition Sväng released an album of self arranged music by Fryderyk Chopin in May 2010.
Perhaps their strong appeal can be attributed to the novelty of the ensemble sound coupled with their unique program of virtuoso Balkan rhythms, swinging ragtime, passionate tango, world music from the North and wild improvisations. A spectacle that must be witnessed live!

Stage Organetto con Gianni Ventola Danese - Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Gianni Ventola DaneseRoma - 28 gennaio 2012
L'uso ritmico armonico dei bassi.

“Che accordi ci metto?” è questa una delle domande più frequenti. La risposta è “dipende, perchè ci sono molte possibilità”. La qualità diatonica dello strumento permette infatti di generare decine e decine di accordi che possono essere suonati per accompagnare in modo più suggestivo e ricco la linea del canto. Non solo. I bassi possono essere usati in modo “cantato” o ritmicamente asimmetrico, infrangendo la rigida scansione ritmica, per rendere più dinamico un determinato passaggio o per aggiungere sincope laddove l'elemento ritmico può arricchire l'interpretazione. I bassi possono essere usati per sovrapposizione e in congiunzione con la tastiera generando modulazioni ed effetti ritmici.



Destinatari
Lo stage si rivolge a coloro che suonano l’organetto a 8, 12 o 18 bassi, e che desiderano ampliare il repertorio e migliorare il loro stile esecutivo. Allo stage possono partecipare anche coloro che non leggono la musica.

Info e costi
Costo dello stage: 80 euro. La quota può essere versata tramite vaglia postale, bonifico bancario, carta di credito o conto PayPal.

Cygnet Folk Festival - Australia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Mick Flanagan6th - 8th January 2012

Irish-born Mick Flanagan had run a folk club in Sydney before moving to Franklin in 1979. He began a monthly folk club in Franklin’s Federal Hotel. A typical night on the first Saturday of the month would include two booked acts, then a ‘Come all Ye’ – a chance for new performers to perform a couple of pieces.
Many had young children and these nights were an important social event for the whole family. They would take along bedding, food and drink for the young children. The kids were expected to show respect for the musicians. They would listen for a while and then settle down. Many of these children grew up to be musicians themselves. This is where the family-friendly spirit of today’s Cygnet Folk Festival comes from.
Mick and his fellow musicians also wanted to showcase Tasmanian talent. This is another important strand in today’s programming. Those involved with those monthly folk club sessions in Franklin held the first annual festival three years later in Cygnet in 1982. It has run continuously ever since with many generations of volunteers. It is now Tasmania’s premier folk, dance and music event.
It has been cited as the inspiration for the high level of artistic activity in the Huon Valley. Many Tasmanian bands grew from chance collaborations at the festival and many musicians have moved to the valley to live because of the festival. Musical events and small group sessions are held throughout the year, albeit hidden among the hills sometimes! Performance at the festival provides a goal which can sustain an emergent band or solo performer for the year.
Musicians from all over Australia are keen to participate in the Cygnet Folk Festival and competition by performers is stiff. Each year the festival employs over one hundred local musicians and brings more than three hundred visiting musicians to Tasmania along with their many more fans
Part of it this year:
Uisce Reatha (issh-ker rah) is a group of friends who play Traditional Irish Music as a way of life. Their name literally means Running Water, and this is easy to see as they play sets of Traditional Irish Jigs and Reels, Hornpipes and Polkas, flowing seamlessly from one tune to another.

Hemlock – A Celtic-style group of local musicians from nearby beautiful hills and valleys, inspired by the likes of Turloch O’Carolan, Planxty, Steeleye Span, Loreena McKennitt and traditional tunes. Hemlock’s eclectic performances include beautiful haunting instrumental and vocal pieces which range from the slow, melodic and ethereal, to lively and vibrant jigs and reels and their own take on traditional songs.

Mick Flanagan is one of the founders of the Cygnet Folk Festival from 30 years ago!! Mick will sing the songs and play tunes from his native Ireland in the time honoured manner of Irish home based entertainment and dance. This is the sound that you feind from Clare to Cork, from Armagh to Kerry, in any parlour or pub

Celtic Connection Festival - Scotland/UK

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
19 jan - 5 feb 2012

It’s January, it’s Glasgow, the nights are long and cold. But with a jig here and a Scotch snap there, out of the darkness erupts the noisy winter carnival that is Celtic Connections, a riotous assembly of music and musicians drawn from five continents for an 18-day, 300-event hoedown that truly brings the city to life.


On Tuesday 24th January 2012, 8.00pm
Celtic Connections Box and Fiddle Night
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall : Strathclyde Suite
Nearly 60 years since Jimmy Shand played ‘The Bluebell Polka’ on Top of the Pops, this all-star gathering – specially curated for Celtic Connections – celebrates the proud history of Scottish accordion and fiddle music, and remembers its most legendary figures, with a selection of classic tracks from classic albums, dating right up to the present. Described as “the ultimate dance-band mix tape”, and featuring plenty of tall tales and anecdotes in between sets, the show is hosted by the inimitable John Carmichael, presiding over a line-up including Duncan and Robert Black, Marie Fielding, Alasdair MacCuish and Tom Orr, plus some very special surprise guests.

12. Fürstenecker Bordunale , Burg Fürsteneck – Germany

by Harley Jones
Sigmar GotheSkandinavische Musik auf dem diatonischen Akkordeon
Für Fortgeschrittene mit Sigmar Gothe vom 1. bis 4. Januar 2012

Anhand charakteristischer Stücke wird ein Einblick in den Stil und die Rhythmik traditioneller Tanzmusik aus Schweden und Norwegen gegeben. Der Kurs vermittelt Tipps und Anregungen wie diese Musik, die sich ursprünglich eher am Geigenrepertoire orientiert hat, auf dem diatonischen Akkordeon gespielt werden kann. Der Schwerpunkt wird auf Polska- bzw. Pols-Melodien liegen. Die einzelnen Melodien werden wir mit unterschiedlicher Intensität bearbeiten, so dass einerseits ein vertieftes Verständnis und andererseits ein vielfältiger Überblick möglich werden.

Sicheres Melodiespiel, eine gute Koordination von rechter und linker Hand sowie die Bereitschaft nach Gehör zu spielen werden vorausgesetzt. Wenn möglich einfaches Aufnahmegerät mitbringen. Benötigt wird ein diatonisches Akkordeon in G/C (ohne Gleichtöner) möglichst ohne Terz im Akkord. Diese kann aber auch noch vor Ort und vorübergehend abgeklebt werden.

Sigmar Gothe, Trossingen, arbeitet als Handzuginstrumentenmacher und spielt schwäbisch-allemannische (mit den "Stäffelsgeigern") und skandinavische Musik auf diatonischem und chromatischem Akkordeon.

Peter Brice, Button Accordionist and Balladeer

by Rita Davidson Barnea
Peter BricePeter Brice plays Irish Traditional music on the button accordion and sings old songs in a traditional style. A protégé of legendary accordionist Billy McComiskey, Peter has pursued the traditional style with special regard for the playing of the old Galway button accordionists, particularly Joe Cooley, Kevin Keegan, and Raymond Roland.

Peter's interest in obscure music and songs from printed collections has earned him a reputation in the United States and in Ireland as an enduring source of little known repertoire. Peter is the founder of the Baltimore Singers Club and a charter member of the Old Bay Ceili Band. He holds a B.A. in Irish Traditional Music and Dance from the University of Limerick.

Peter performed in "A Celtic New Year", celebrated at Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage on Saturday night, December 31st, with Irish music and dance in the form of jigs and reels. He performed with the New Century Ensemble and its leader, accompanist and producer, Zan McLeod.

"Technically, I'm more Scottish than I am Irish," said McLeod, a multitalented accompanist and producer. "But the word 'Celtic' has become a popular [term] in the last 15 years. As people get more familiar with the music, they realize a lot of it came from England and Scotland, as well as Ireland."

Having performed in many musical styles and genres, this native of North Carolina co-founded the Irish-American group Touchstone. In 1988, McLeod migrated north to D.C., where he met up with his Irish musician buddies and began touring and recording.

Now, guitarist McLeod (who has performed and recorded with such Irish notables as the Chieftains and Seamus Egan) works with his New Century Ensemble, and its Celtic cast of performers that include Peter Brice on the accordion, Rosie Shipley on the fiddle and the professional New Century Dancers under the direction of Kate Bole.

At the Millennium concert, Peter performed the dance music that you hear from Ireland and Scotland; the traditional jigs and reels and Caeli [dance] repertoire along with some holiday songs and a Celtic version of "Auld Lang Syne," a traditional Scottish tune by Robert Burns.

Grove Lane...by the master of diatonic accodion/Joe Derrane - USA

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Grove Lane by Joe DerraneJoe DerraneGrove Lane’ is the title of a wonderful CD from Irish-American accordionist Joe Derrane, featuring a splendid selection of traditional jigs, reels, hornpipes, waltzes, barndance, plus ‘Tango Derrane’, a self composition.

Joe Derrane (born 1930), from Boston, Massachusetts, is widely regarded by his peers as the greatest exponent of the 2-row D/C# system diatonic accordion. Playing professionally and recording since 1947, Joe Derrane’s Irish dance music has been much admired for his vigorous, accurate and highly ornamented playing.

By the late 1950s Derrane had switched to piano accordion and formed a band to play for weddings and similar engagements, moving away from Irish music to popular music and music from other traditions, including Italian and Jewish. By the mid-1970s musical tastes had changed once more and Derrane again switched instruments, moving to the electronic organ.

In 1994 Derrane switched back to the button accordion and began performing and recording again, with great success. He has appeared on radio and television many times, and was the subject of an Irish TV documentary, ‘As Played By Joe Derrane’. He has toured Canada, Switzerland and the Netherlands, and appeared with The Chieftains at Boston Symphony Hall. In 1998, Derrane was inducted into the Hall of Fame of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann (North American Province) for his contribution to Irish traditional music.
