Stockholm Music and Theatre Museum - Sweden

by Diatonic News
MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS - Diatonic Accordion

Since 1979 the Stockholm Music Museum is located in the former Crown Bakery, in the same block as the Court Stables, beside the Royal Dramatic Theatre.
The Crown Bakery dates from the 17th. Century, and is Stockholm’s oldest industrial building.
This building has a long and eventful history and has through the centuries performed a number of functions: bakery, weapon depot, spirits store.
Yet almost all the time – from the 1640’s to 1958 – it has been a bakery for the armed forces in Stockholm. It even boasted mobile ovens which could be used during field exercises.
In 1945 the building was ravaged by a fire which destroyed its upper floors in the northern part – where the Concert Hall is now located.

The musical instrument collection consists of approximately 6400 artifacts of varying ages: from brand new to several hundreds of years old. The major part of the collection is of European art music and Scandinavian folk music instruments.
Since the 1970's the collection has included Nordiska Museet's instrument collection.

Consequently only part of the collection is shown on the website. At the moment circa 1,800 instruments are accessible. Updates are made on a daily basis, so check out and see what is new!

There are no linguistic or cultural barriers when friends of accordion music from all around the world come together. Music is in the air in the Festival Park and in the concert venues for a week. Both amateurs and world class musicians perform at Ikaalinen – providing the festival audience with an astonishing variety of musical styles.

HEBCELT Festival - Scotland

by Diatonic News
Stornoway 11-14th July 2012

Celebrating 17 years, the award winning Hebcelt is renowned for its truly special party atmosphere which radiates out from its epicentre in the Castle Grounds to our outermost communities
-The Outer Hebrides, located off the north west coast of Scotland, incorporate the islands of Barra, South Uist, Benbecula, North Uist, Harris and Lewis; a group of islands each uniquely different.

The Festival centres on the main venue, a large marquee, capable of accommodating up to 5000, which is set in the scenic grounds of Lews Castle, Stornoway.

The 'Castle' a Victorian mock Tudor castle was built in 1849 by Sir James Matheson of Jardine Matheson Company and is surrounded by a beautiful wooded area once believed to rival Kew Gardens for its richness in variety. Lord Leverhulme granted the lands to the folk of Stornoway in 1923 and this saw the establishment of the Stornoway Trust who now oversee the daily management of the Grounds and croft lands within the Trust area.

In addition to the many complementary events in Stornoway, the 'capital' of this island group, a variety of events are hosted by community groups around the islands of Lewis and Harris.

by Diatonic News
Kaustinen Folk Music Festival, in Kaustinen, 9 – 15 July I
Themes for the Kaustinen Folk Music Festival this year are Scandinavia, the kantele and the historical province of Tavastia (Häme) in southern Finland. The festival focuses on Finnish folk music and its various related phenomena, such as folk dance, singer-songwriters, and mind-boggling crossovers.

This year, a record-breaking number of over 300 folk music groups, from amateurs to professionals, are expected to arrive at the festival, including M.A. Numminen & Pedro Hietanen, Hyperborea, Freija, Alamaailman Vasarat, Suo and Tallari to name but a few. Also JPP will be celebrating their 30th anniversary, and Frigg their new release.

The Kaustinen Folk Music Festival Band of the Year 2012 is the Sibelius Academy Folk Big Band. They are a folk music band consisting of 35 musicians, each of whom play an important role as the composer, arranger, multi-instrumentalist, soloist and a band member. Their instrument repertoire includes violins, kanteles, accordions, guitars, wind instruments and harmoniums. A wide array of instruments and indisputably strong folk singing skills give the band a distinct and unequaled sound.

BANDADRIATICA- QUELLI TRA BARCA E REALTÀ - Italia

by Diatonic News
"Arriva la banda" è il primo videoclip del gruppo salentino
diretto da Gianni De Blasi in cui i musicisti sono immersi in un mondo animato

Una nonna in cucina col nipote alle prese col morituro pollo, un manager incredulo, sposi ubriachi, sono alcuni dei personaggi che animano “Arriva La Banda” videoclip del primo singolo estratto dall’omonimo cd della salentina Bandadriatica, diretto da Gianni De Blasi e realizzato con il sostegno di Apulia Film Commission. Questo nuovo lavoro discografico della ciurma ribelle guidata dall’organettista e cantante Claudio Prima, che da cinque anni infiamma le piazze di mezza Europa, prodotto da Finisterre, distribuito da Felmay e promosso con il sostegno di Puglia Sounds , contiene una serie di musiche e testi inediti che si intrecciano in una nuova forma canzone che vive di un'energia trascinante.
