KEN SWEENEY Concertina - New England/USA

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Ken has been drawn to old and traditional songs and tunes since childhood. Playing harmonica since age 18, five-string banjo following a few years later, along with guitar and finally acquiring an English concertina a decade later - the object of interest that started it all - he has been actively playing and performing one thing or another since 1970.

Travelling extensively by thumb, boxcar, motorcycle, and homemade canoe since the age of thirteen (and still at it) and living in numerous rustic and out-of-the-way places has given Ken a unique understanding of the lifestyles of which he sings, and a first-hand sense of the regional and cultural nuances in the tunes he plays.

Don't call Ken a scholar, or an academic, or an historian - he holds no degrees, has written no books, and can't remember names and dates; he's just a guy who lets the music and song lead the way to grand adventure, and delights in sharing it.

Ken has been an educator and chanteyman at Mystic Seaport Museum for much of the past twenty years.

.....
"A native New Englander, Ken first heard sea chanteys as a child listening to his parents' record player and later found to his delight that he had a knack for rendering those tunes on the harmonica. He sings and plays traditional music on diatonic and chromatic harmonica, five-string banjo, and guitar, and has been performing at New England Contra dances, pubs, folk festivals, and concert stages for more than 20 years. After several appearances at the Sea Music Festival, he took on seasonal duties as a chanteyman. Ken has been described by fellow musicians as a consummate harmonica player."
Ken can be found playing banjo, concertina, and harmonica on the CD "Tapping the Tradition."

William (Wim) Wakker, Craftsman Concertina Maker Now US Citizen - USA

by Harley Jones
Wim WakkerWakker, a Dutch classical musician-turned instrument maker is now a US Citizen. The Valleyford, Washington State musician is known around the world for the custom-made concertinas he builds by hand. There are perhaps only five true concertina makers in the world, William Wakker says. His concertinas are not only made in America, but as of last Tuesday when he became an American citizen, “it’s truly American-made”.

For the past three years since moving to the USA, the Dutch-born Wakker has been making concertinas in his Valleyford home with his wife, Karen, a native of Spokane Valley.

A former concert musician and teacher who received a graduate degree at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam, Wakker taught and did postgraduate work at the University of Denver where he met Karen. He studied theoretical design and 19th-century free-reed instruments, including the concertina, until one day he took a leap.

“I decided I was going to learn to make and restore those instruments myself,” Wakker said.

When he says there are only five concertina makers in the world, Wakker is talking about craftsmen who make all the pieces of the instrument, including the focal steel reeds, honed to hundredths of an inch.

“You have to be able to work on small objects and you have to be able to hear the harmonics on top of the note,” Wakker said.

Wakker has been involved in concertina instrument design and manufacture. From 2003-2009 he designed and started production of the Jackie/Jack, Rochelle and Elise (hybrid) entry level concertinas.  In 2004 he started Wakker Concertinas (hand made) concertinas. In 2010 Wakker started the production of the Clover and Peacock,  intermediate level (hybrid) concertinas.

Used Bandoneon Shortage - Argentina

by Harley Jones
Alicia ComelliThere are complaints that foreign tourists with bulging wallets are buying up bandoneons as collectors items.

"In a few years, there will be no more bandoneons in our country," said Oscar Fischer, who heads La Casa del Bandoneon. A specialist in these instruments, Fischer has a workshop in Buenos Aires.

Horacio Ferrer, President of Argentina's National Tango Academy said - "I've known people who have 10 or 12 bandoneons, but don't play them," he said.

Because of the current exchange rates, antique instruments in Argentina are usually cheaper than in Europe and other countries. The current peso exchange rate means that new bandoneons from Europe are very expensive relative to incomes in Argentina.

Fischer said that "When the Second World War began, we had 60,000 bandoneons in Argentina. There are now only 20,000 of them left," and “only 2,000 remain in very good shape and with their original pieces."

Argentinian Congresswoman Alicia Comelli (picture right) introduced a law aimed at protecting the Bandoneon that was passed in 2009 but is still awaiting the decree so the law can take effect. "The bandoneon is part of Argentina's culture. We must protect this heritage," she said.

Under the bandoneon law, the government would be able to seize an instrument subject to a sale if it ever belonged to a well-known musician or if it is more than 40 years old. A national register of bandoneons would also be created and the instruments would be barred from leaving the country.

Another way, is being tried at the National University of Lanus. They have a plan to manufacture bandoneons at an affordable price. A prototype is nearly ready for testing and the production will not seek to make a profit.

AMAntica Festival Castelnuovo/Recanati - Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Due giornate di musica, mostre, incontri..per irscoprire le meraviglie del borgo di Castelnuovo (Recanati-mc), tra musica popolare, interviste a chi da anni si muove per le sue stradine e visite in un piccolo intenso mondo.
30-31 Luglio 2011

L'antico rione di Castelnuovo è un piccolo e intenso mondo di vicoli e botteghe, di fervida produzione artigianale e di eccellenze sviluppate lungo un secolo di storia, che ha dato i natali a importanti figure del nostro tempo, piccoli e grandi artisti.
Se ci si addentra passo passo nelle arti e nei mestieri che hanno caratterizzato e caratterizzano la sua quotidianità, queste poche strade si colorano di un profondo che entusiasma e arricchisce la conoscenza personale di ognuno.

Da questo spontaneo fascino nasce il Festival AmAnticA, 2 giornate di musica ed eventi capaci
di raccontare con suggestioni e ospiti di rilevanza nazionale e internazionale la personalità e il carisma di questo rione.
Portare alla luce le proprie radici, ancora tanto robuste e vitali, diventa un mezzo per leggere e conoscere il presente e per lanciarsi più saldi verso il futuro.
Un divenire tra ieri, oggi e domani, tra classico e popolare, tutto questo è AmAnticA.


Stage di 2 giornate tenuto dal maestro e didatta Alessandro Parente (Piccola Orchestra La Viola 30-31-luglio 2011)

1° Concorso Nazionale "Città di Futani" (SA) - Italia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Per TUTTI GLI ORGANETTISTI DEL MONDO – for all diatonic accordionplayers in the world!

Saturday 16th from 3 pm until Sunday 17th July 11.30 pm
sabato 16 luglio alle ore 15.00 - 17 luglio alle ore 23.30

Per maggior informazioni contattare: Alessandro Gaudio su FB



La fisarmonica diatonica, comunemente nota come ORGANETTO, è uno strumento musicale appartenente alla famiglia degli AEROFONI (strumenti il cui suono è generato da un flusso d'aria) di tipo MECCANICO (l'aria è prodotta da un mantice o soffietto) e provvisto di ANCE LIBERE.
L'ancia libera è una sottile linguetta di acciaio, fissata ad una estremità su una piastrina di ottone o alluminio forata in modo tale da consentire all'ancia di vibrare liberamente sotto il soffio dell'aria, producendo così il suono.
Ogni ancia è intonata su una nota musicale: la lunghezza e la larghezza della linguetta sono proporzionate all'altezza della nota. Più acuta è la nota, più piccola è l'ancia e viceversa. Le ance sono montate su intelaiature di legno (soniere) fissate all'interno di due cassettine, anch'esse di legno, dotate entrambe di tastiera.
L'organetto è caratterizzato da una tastiera melodica a bottoni, azionata dalla mano destra, estesa per 2 ottave e 1/2, nella quale le note sono ordinate per scale diatoniche (5 toni e 2 semitoni). Ad ogni bottone corrispondono due suoni differenti, secondo che il tasto sia premuto aprendo o chiudendo il mantice (sistema bitonico). Il numero dei tasti della melodia può variare, secondo il tipo di organetto, da 12 a 33, ordinati in una, due o tre file.
Lo strumento possiede una seconda tastiera più piccola, azionata dalla mano sinistra, che comprende i bassi e gli accordi (da un minimo di 2 a un massimo di 12, ordinati in due file) necessari per l'accompagnamento ritmico.
Ogni tastiera aziona una serie di valvole che consentono il passaggio dell'aria attraverso le ance e la produzione del suono. L'afflusso dell'aria alle ance è assicurato da un mantice in cartone rivestito di stoffa, che collega le due casse.
Tra i vari tipi di organetto, quelli più utilizzati nella musica tradizionale italiana sono l'organetto a 2 bassi e l'organetto a 8 bassi, pur essendo diffusi anche i tipi a 4 e a 12 bassi.

Festival « Les Nuits Salines » - France

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Le Coz22-24 July Batz sur Mer/France

festival : un état d'esprit... trois jours et trois nuits dans, la musique, la fête et la convivialité !...

Le festival « Les Nuits Salines » de Batz sur Mer, c'est, avant tout, des instants de grande convivialité qui permettent aux résidents du pays des paludiers et aux personnes, de passage dans la commune ou dans la région, de se rencontrer, de partager leurs cultures et de faire, ensemble, la fête !…
Les Nuits Salines, ce sont trois jours et trois nuits de festival autour du sel, l’or blanc de notre presqu’île.

Pendant la durée des « Nuits », un "village" est installé sur la place du Mûrier, où chacun peut venir se restaurer de crêpes, grillades, moules-frites ou sandwiches, accompagnés de cidre, de bière blanche, blonde ou brune, ou simplement d'un soda, tout en écoutant la musique des groupes qui se produisent sur la scène du Village.



Une seule monnaie est valide pour payer ces denrées : les sachets de sel que l'on trouve aux caisses situées à l'entrée du village.
En plus des concerts, une initiation à la pêche à pied, des balades dans les maris salants, en calèches, un spectacle pour enfants et un marché du terroir complètent cette riche programmation festive.

Cette année, encore, les "Nuits Salines" font preuve d'originalité et d'ouverture avec :
- des musiques TRADITIONNELLES (fest-noz) et des ambiances plus ROCK,
- un mélange du monde CELTIQUE (bretagne et irlande) et du monde, au sens WORLD Music (roots),
- sans oublier la CHANSON FRANCAISE et "MARINE".

Les enfants ne sont pas oubliés, ils pourront embarquer pour un voyage dans le monde merveilleux du cirque !

Les "Nuits" favorisent, toujours, l'émergence de groupes locaux, à côté d'affiches celtiques.
Les 'nuits" vous emmènent partout où la musique est gaie, festive et parle de nos racines

Kastav (CRO), Summer Festival – Istria/Croatia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
7.5.2011. - 26.8.2011 This oldest summer festival in the Kvarner region dates back to the early 1990s, 1992 to be exact. It was then that a group of enthusiasts, led by Milivoj Jelovica who today is honorary president of the Society, organized the first Summer, which included a drama programme by local playwrights and performers. The excellent public reception led to the organization of a larger festival the following year and, since “three’s a charm”, in 1994, the programme was further expanded to include drama, art and exhibits and classical and popular music. From year to year, the content, quality and quantity of the summer festival keeps growing and growing and, with the participation of numerous foreign performers, the festival has taken on an international character. To date, excellent artists have come from all over the world: Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Holland, Hungary, Macedonia, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Uruguay, United States and the United Kingdom.

BRIAN PETERS /Masterclasses/Concert in July - UK

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Traditional songs and music from England with squeezeboxes

Traditional songs and music from England with squeezeboxes and guitar
- traditional folk music combined in a high level of skill on three different instruments with a great voice and an energetic stage presence. He's a leading English squeezebox player, doubling on melodeon (button accordion) and anglo concertina, a fine guitarist well-versed in open tunings, and a passionate singer who can convey drama or emotion, while his carefully-constructed accompaniments blend adventure and sophistication. Described as "One of British folk music's finest ambassadors", Brian started out in the folk clubs of England and has taken his performances to stages all over the world, touring regularly in Europe and America, and always retaining a deep commitment to the musical traditions of his native country.

XIX Viljandi Folk Music Festival - Estonia

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
The theme of XIX Viljandi Folk Music Festival which takes place on July 28-31 is "Rhythm and Pulse" through which the organisers hope to create a bond stronger than ever before between the performers and the audiences.

Viljandi Folk Music Festival

Similarly to the previous years, the programme of the festival taking place on July 28-31 includes more than 70 concerts plus tens of performances on the Green Stage and on the dance floor. In addition to that, everyone is invited to attend the workshops, night university, runo song nest, fairytale chamber, instrument fair, handicraft yard and film sessions.

The Head of the Programme, Tarmo Noormaa, reminded everyone that the organisers of Viljandi Folk Music Festival do not usually label any of the performers as the headliners of the festival. "Throughout the years, our audiences have proven to be very professional and curious and that is why we want the guests to have a lot of freedom in their choices. However, one thing is certain - many exotic and engaging rhythms will be heard," he said.

Among the internationally well-known performers, the Head of the Programme brought out Trilok Gurtu, a percussion player and composer from Kashmir. He was one of the first Indian musicians who managed to break into the West with his ability to mix the music from his homeland with jazz and fusion. The solo performances of Trilok Gurtu are famous for being spectacular and inspiring and widening the audience's concept of drum playing and the world of rhythm as such.

In addition to that, summery Viljandi will also host the Swedish traditional music pioneer and legend Hedningarna who was the first in the world to mix Scandinavian traditional music with rock and electronic and acoustic instruments. Hedningarna has brought traditional music into the clubs and stadium stages and has appeared in different pop music charts. "Their modern sound language has inspired many other musicians," added Tarmo Noormaa. The last time Hedningarna performed in Estonia was in 1997 and their fan base in Estonia has been growing ever since.

In addition to the performers mentioned already, performers of the festival include Snaarmaarwaar from Belgium, Ensemble Sahnbehzadeh from Iran, Chveneburebi from Georgia, Oreka Tx from the Basque County, Reveillons from Quebec, Cissokho System from Senegal, Auli from Latvia and Sergei Starostin's family band from Russia.

Estonian bands Kukerpillid, Abrahams Café, Legshaker, Nikns Suns, Triskele, VEM, Vägilased, Untsakad, RO:TORO, Zetod, Paabel, Knihv and several others will also give a concert.

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Giampaolo Bandini – Cesare Chiacchiaretta Duo, guitar and bandoneon, formed in 2002 pursuing the clear aim to propose Argentine music through the charm and magic of its most representative instruments. The duo immediately became an important point of reference in the international concert circuit thanks to their great communicativeness joined to an extraordinary charisma. Invited by the most important festivals and theatres in the world, they have toured in Mexico, Romania, China, Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland, Croatia, Russia, Slovenia, Turkey, the Czech Republic and Hungary meeting outstanding critical and audience approval.
The duo had the privilege to play Astor Piazzolla’s Double Concerto “Hommage a Liegi” conducted by Maestro Leo Brouwer at the Auditorium Paganini of Parma and for the Unione Musicale of Turin with the renowned Moscow Virtuosi chamber orchestra conducted by Pavel Berman. In 2004 Bandini – Chiacchiaretta Duo was awarded the 15th “Beniamino Joppolo” Citta di Patti Prize (in the province of Messina, Italy) for remarkable artistic achievements in the field of music.
In 2005 the duo made their debut in the prestigious Grand Hall of Saint Petersburg Academic Philarmonic achieving such great success that they were immediately asked to play for the following two years. Their peculiarity of living music to the full and without boundaries leads them to work together with prominent artists such as Arnoldo Foa, Elio delle Storie Tese, Amanda Sandrelli and musicians such as Fernando Suarez Paz, Michele Pertusi, Corrado Giuffredi, Danilo Rossi, Massimo Quarta, Enrico Bronzi, Franca Masu, Maria Estela Monti, Enrico Fagone and many others.
Their first CD “Hombres de Tango” sold more than ten thousand copies and was greeted with great enthusiasm by the critics. They have recorded for the most important radio and television broadcasters in Italy and abroad.
Recently, a concert held in Brussels was broadcast via satellite in more than twenty countries. As teachers, they are requested by the most renowned Academies and Universities and hold classes at the Institutes of Higher Education “Luigi Boccherini” in Lucca and “Tito Schipa” in Lecce as well as at the Summer Festivals of Gubbio and Portogruaro.

2011 Pitango Annual Tour - Israel

by Harley Jones
Amijai Shalev (bandoneon),Israeli quartet Pitango of Hadar Cohen (violin), Amijai Shalev (bandoneon, picture left), Shahar Ziv (piano) and Rinat Avisar (double bass) are making their annual tour of Israel, performing chamber concerts and a joint program with the Netanya Kibbutzim Chamber Orchestra under its artistic director Yaron Gottfried.

“These are two different programs,” explains Amijai Shalev. “The first, in which we are joined by tango dancers Ronen Hayat and Maya Schwartz, is more intimate. It is for those who want to hear tango of different styles and periods as it sounds in cafes of Buenos Aires.

The second is for those who prefer a big symphonic sound. It is like you take music from the street and bring it to a symphony hall – it both gains and loses and takes on a new aspect. We perform Astor Piazzola’s Four Seasons of Buenos Aires, especially arranged for quartet and orchestra.

by Holda Paoletti-Kampl
Caladh is an old Irish word meaning "Harbour" or "Shelter place". Caladh Nua means a "New Harbour" or "New Shelter place".

This very unique band was founded in early 2009. Like many of the great Irish traditional bands Caladh Nua simply formed as a result of some great musicians crossing paths, realising a special connection and then wanting to share it with the world audience. The ensemble comprises of five extremely talented musicians from three beautiful regions in Ireland, counties Carlow, Waterford and Kilkenny. The tasteful musical arrangements of Caladh Nua include traditional Irish dance music, traditional songs alongside some more recently composed pieces. Caladh Nua has a perfect balance between innovation and preservation of Irelands wonderful music and song tradition, the band's special repertoire and energy is guaranteed to capture an audience of any generation.
