What Are You Doing For World Accordion Day? - International

by Harley Jones
World Accordion Day - 6 MayWhat 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.

Anna Lena Kois-jüngste Harmonikamacherin - Österreich

by Diatonic News
Anna Lena KoisAnna Lena Kois (18) machte ihr Hobby zum Beruf. Als erste Müller-Mitarbeiterin mit „Lehre mit Matura“ ist sie damit auch Österreichs jüngste Harmonikamacherin.

Harmonika spielen können einige, aber eine Harmonika bauen? Das können nur wenige. Ihr Hobby zum Beruf gemacht hat die 18-jährige Anna Lena Kois aus Bad St. Leonhard, und zwar im traditionsreichen Familienbetrieb Harmonika Müller in Bad St. Leonhard. Als erste Müller-Mitarbeiterin mit „Lehre mit Matura“ ist sie damit auch Österreichs jüngste Harmonikamacherin. Nach ihrer ausgezeichneten Lehrabschlussprüfung folgt nun heuer noch die Matura.

Von allen Instrumenten habe sie die Harmonika immer schon am meisten fasziniert, darum spielt die Harmonikamacherin bereits seit ihrem siebenten Lebensjahr auf ihrem Lieblingsinstrument. „Musikalisch zu sein, mit gutem Hörvermögen, reicht für den Lehrberuf allein nicht aus“, erzählt die ambitionierte junge Frau und fügt hinzu: „Bis zur fertigen Harmonika sind es zahlreiche Arbeitsschritte in der Fertigung, da muss man handwerklich geschickt sein und präzise arbeiten.“

"4° Festival di Organetto del Cilento e del Vallo di Diano" - Italia

by Diatonic News
30/31 marzo 2019

20. INTERNATIONALE AKKORDEON FESTIVAL 2019 (bis 24.03.2019)

by Diatonic News
Akkordeonfestivals WienDie 20. Auflage des Internationalen Akkordeonfestivals Wien verkünden, mit ihren vielen kommenden Attraktionen wie jedes Jahr, die letzten (kalendarischen) Wintertage zu überstehen und den langsam einsetzenden Frühling mit offenen Armen zu empfangen.

20 ausufernde, programmatisch dichte Kulturfeste ganz im Zeichen des Akkordeons. Ein Instrument, in Hoch- und Volkskultur gleichermaßen vertreten, das zu E- und U-Musik ebenso stets etwas zu spielen weiss, wie es bei der Wiener Musik und der Weltmusik souverän mitzureden hat, regionale Dialekte diverser Folkloren ebenso fließend spricht wie die vielen Zungen der globalen Popmusik, mit den Jazzer_innen beseelt jamt und improvisiert, dass es eine wahre Freude ist, und sich dann in der Kammermusik subtil diszipliniert.

Dennoch war im Jahr 2000, als Friedl Preisl das erste Akkordeonfestival umsetzte, nicht abzusehen, dass sich im Zeichen dieses großartigen Instruments eine solche Erfolgsgeschichte entwickeln würde können, als die das Akkordeonfestival Wien heute international wahrgenommen und nicht nur in Wien wertgeschätzt wird.

Dies mag damit zu tun haben, dass beim Akkordeonfestival Wien immer wieder auch die Nähe und Querverbindungen oben aufgeführter Begrifflichkeiten, die tatsächlichen Wahlverwandtschaften vermeintlich unterschiedlicher Genres manifest werden, und es in der Essenz um lebendige Schönheit, um Lebendigkeit und deren in vielen musikalischen Formen wertigen Ausdruck gehen darf.

Winter-Hiking-Trekharmonika Weekend/Mark Söhngen - Holland

by Diatonic News
Mark Söhngen6-8 March 2015 Berg en Dal (Nijmegen)

Make a weekend music and walk in the beautiful surroundings of Berg en Dal led by Mark Söhngen and Hilbert Post. Arrival Friday from 5 pm (dinner), end Sunday 4 pm.


The workshop
Mark gives the workshop. A sensitive minor roller, a sensual tango, a lazy blues or a swinging polka Playing the right notes is one thing, but how do you get such a melody according to sensitive or sensual or languid or swinging freshness? My grandmother said it all: "C'est le ton qui fait la musique".
Therefore: in this workshop we will look at how you can make notes of music: how do you make a tone, how do you use it, do you like it or not, short, long, soft, hard, how to use your bellows after all, the breath of your draft harmonica and when exactly. Where do you leave your fingers and your feet and how do you (for a piece) turn off your mind and (completely) your feeling.
We will do this in C / F and possibly. G / C on the basis of a couple of beautiful, sensitive, sensual, languid and swinging melodies from the rich repertoire (and that is often more than you think) from which we can choose as a tune harmonica player, from middle ages through balfolk to pop music.

Melodeon Building Course (2.5 Row) with Emmanuel Pariselle - GB

by Diatonic News
Monday 18 Mar 10am — Monday 25 Mar 4pm, 2019

Emmanuel will guide novice makers through the steps to build your own two and a half row melodeon. You will leave with your own professional standard instrument; whilst having a great sense of humour (and extremely good English) Emmanuel is also a demanding task master and will ensure that all instruments made are of the highest possible calibre. In addition to having a wonderful instrument, you’ll also benefit from the inestimable experience of working with a master craftsman and learn techniques for construction, maintenance and repair in the future.

The box you build will reflect your individual preferences and there is flexibility in terms of key, inlay and accidental layout (see below). Case wood is French walnut and reeds are high quality Binci a mano hand made Italian reeds. Please note that because of the time constraints on this course Emmanuel can only offer stepped and not Irish-style flat fingerboards.

During their 12 year span, the band has produced and released six CDs. Something for the Young & Old (2005); Who Want It (2007) Gotta Be Me (2009); I Bring It (2011); I AM The Creole Truth (2015) and the current Built Creole Tough (2016) . Offbeat Magazine's review of Gotta Be Me writes; "Given the subtle finishing touches, like the cool descending guitar cords and sliding keys, a band that has found it's course, Same Ol 2 Step is hardly same ol'. They will make you want to dance."

Concertinas! Concert - Great Britain

by Diatonic News
Cohen Braithwaite-KilcoyneSaturday 9 Mar 8pm–9:30pm, 2019

Available are a very small number of tickets available for members of the public to attend the tutors’ concert, as part of the WCCP Concertina Weekend. Please book in advance, as the event will be very busy.

MICHAEL HEBBERT, a Jeffries Duet player since 1958, has played in many different styles through Traditional English, Latin American, Klezmer, Playford and more. Besides busking in streets and pubs he has performed extensively with singer Andrew Frank and led workshops at many major festivals and events. He’s now working on new stuff with jazz singer Natasha Sutton-Williams.

New kid on the block COHEN BRAITHWAITE-KILCOYNE (photo) is a fine singer and player of the anglo concertina and melodeon, whose skill and experience belie his tender years. Nominated for a BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2014 as a member of trio Granny’s Attic, Cohen received a nomination in his own right in the coveted Horizon Award category in 2018. Cohen has a style and approach deeply rooted in the traditions of the British Isles and regularly gives tuition linked to traditional music, both on a one-on-one basis and in group workshops.

ALEX WADE left Yorkshire to study music in Durham where she immersed herself in the rich folk traditions of the North East. Woodwind teacher by day, award-winning dance musician by night, Alex combines an innate understanding of traditional music with a wealth of teaching experience. She is excited to be venturing south to tutor the English players at Halsway!

CLAIRE WREN has been running concertina band workshops for over 25 years. She has written extensively for concertina band and smaller ensembles. Claire is the Musical Director of Banding Together and also directs her own concertina band “J25”. Claire’s favourite pastime is rehearsal!

by Diatonic News
OUT 1st March 2019

Five years since they first hit the road together, folk super-trio Leveret return with their fourth album, Diversions. In contrast to the self-penned Inventions (2017), Diversions features exclusively traditional material, unearthed from archives, manuscripts and tunebooks and reinvigorated in Leveret’s signature style. It’s a collection of tunes which, though unassuming on the page, take on a whole new life in Leveret’s hands.
