Open Air Konzerte mit Andreas Gabalier - (Österreich)/Deutschland

by Diatonic News
Nürnberg Open Air 28.5.2014 ab 18:30h
Neu-isenburg / Frankfurt am Main Open Air 29.5.2014 ab 19.30h

Andreas Gabalier ist derzeit einer der erfolgreichsten Volksmusiker Europas: ER bricht in seiner Heimat Österreich und mittlerweile auch in Deutschland sämtliche musikalischen Rekorde und seine drei Alben stehen seit Monaten auf den vordersten Plätzen der Charts. Nach seiner sensationellen Arena-Solotournee im Herbst 2013 wird der sympathische Sänger im Sommer 2014 bei wenigen ausgewählten Open-Air Shows erneut das deutsche Publikum begeistern.Seine Mischung aus Volksmusik und Rock nennt er ganz einfach „VolksRock`n`Roll“. Und sobald er die Bühne betritt, steht das Publikum in der Halle Kopf; es wird gekreischt und gejohlt wie bei einem Justin Bieber-Konzert. Allein der Weg hin zur Bühne ist für den Steirer jedes Mal eine Herausforderung: „Es ist doch super, wie’s ist“, sagt er und kommt mit dem Autogrammeschreiben kaum noch nach. Andreas Gabalier genießt das Bad in der Menge und wundert sich dabei selbst immer wieder darüber, wie schnell eigentlich alles ging. Der Spiegel nennt ihn den "Elvis der Volksmusik" und die Süddeutsche Zeitung schreibt: "Gabalier lädt die Volksmusik mit Sex auf... seine Musik ist rockiger als die der Anderen". Sein Hit „I sing a Liad für di“ läuft in den Funkstationen und Diskotheken rauf und runter und wird allerorts gecovert. auf Haartolle und seinen mittlerweile legendären „Arsch-Wackler“. Andreas Gabalier ist ein Massenphänomen! So vieles ist bei ihm außerhalb der Norm und das ist gut so! Es kracht, es stampft, es rockt!Seine Kernzielgruppe hat Andreas Gabalier längst gesprengt. Bei ihm treffen Ziehharmonika und Lederhose

by Diatonic News
in Scheffau am Wilden Kaiser/Tirol mit Weltrekordversuch
Pfingsten 2014 – 8. bis 9. Juni 2014

Freunde der "Steirischen" sollten sich das Pfingstwochenende 2014 rot im Kalener anstreichen. Das dritte Tiroler Knöpferl-Harmonika-Treffen geht in Scheffau und auf der Walleralm über die Bühne - und wer will, kann sogar aktiv mithelfen einen Weltrekord aufzustellen!



HARMONIKA-TREFFEN IN SCHEFFAU/ORTSZENTRUM

Erster Höhepunkt ist am 8. Juni das "Fest der Harmonika", für das der Knöpferl Musikverlag als Veranstalter sogar einen Weltrekordversuch plant. Wir wollen das größte Harmonika-Orchester der Welt auf die Beine stellen. Wir laden jetzt schon alle Freunde der Steirischen ein, uns bei diesem Vorhaben zu unterstützen. Ist die Harmonika-Big Band formiert, spielen alle zusammen das Stück "Die Sterne am Himmel"(Ideal wäre GCFB-Stimmung, Leihinstrument möglich). Und zwar gemeinsam mit dem Komponisten, denn Luis Plattner sorgt mit seinem "Tiroler Echo" an diesem Abend für Stimmung. Mit dabei auch die aus dem Musikantenstadl bekannte Familienmusig Herzog und natürlich das "Knöpferl Ensemble" mit den beiden Autoren Peter Thurner und Josef Rupprechter. Für die Verpflegung der Besucher sorgen die Scheffau Vereine, unterstützt wir die Veranstaltung auch vom TVB Wilder Kaiser-Scheffau und vom Kulturausschuss der Gemeinde. Beginn 18 Uhr 30



HARMONIKA-TREFFEN AUF DER WALLERALM

Am Pfingsmontag lädt der TVB Scheffau zu einer geführten Wanderung auf die Walleralm, wo das große Harmonika-Treffen in Szene geht. Ab 11 Uhr gibt es ein lockeres Programm mit verschiedenen Gruppen, dem "Knöpferl Ensemble" und einen Auftritt der "Oimdudler". Natürlich haben die Teilnehmer auch wieder Gelegenheit, ihr Können vor großem Publikum zu präsentieren. Anmeldung erbeten. Durch das Programm führt jeweis Hermann Nageler.

World Accordion Day (WAD) Online - Finland

by Diatonic News
World Accordion Day logoWorld Accordion Day - Celebrate the Accordion!

May 6th will see the celebration of World Accordion Day by many accordionists around the world. A project of the Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA), coordinated by CIA Music Committee Member Grayson Masefield, ths 5th annual celebration has taken on several interesting formats during its short evolution.

Beginning with coordinated celebrations from around the globe, the last two years have seen a 24 hour live streaming. While initial plans thought of a live streaming this year, the CIA has decided instead to collect footage from around the world of CIA member activities, to be made available to member associations and interested accordionists for use to publicize the accordion with media, fellow musical associations, the International Music Council as well as for other opportunities to promote the accordion in the field of music as appropriate.

The CIA is blessed to be supported by more than 30 nations spanning all corners of the world, and with its competition winners alone, features some of the world's most outstanding accordionists performing a diverse array of musical styles, while representing many countries and musical cultures. Combined with World Accordion Orchestra, the composers portfolio of new works for accordion and representation at the International Music Council, the CIA is truly the epitome of 'World Accordion' and so by compiling all these exciting activities into one source, the CIA hopes to celebrate World Accordion Day itself, along with the rest of the world!

We invite those celebrating World Accordion Day to submit video and pictures from their activities to the CIA, so that as we correlate the various activities we have a wonderful cross section of the many faces of accordion found around the world.

During World Accordion Day, members of the CIA Executive will be in Finland at the CIA headquarters, working on plans for publicising this years events, as well as exploring possibilities for a live event next year, which will be discussed by the CIA Delegates at the upcoming General Assembly in Salzburg, Austria later in the year.

To submit your information, please send your videos, pictures, or links to online performances to the CIA General Secretary Kimmo Mattila at e-mail, with World Accordion Day in the subject box: secretariat_cia@harmonikkaliitto.net

Dieser Tango ist ganz und gar Gegenwart. Das Echo der Tradition ist spürbar, aber die Musik ist heftig und bunt wie das Leben in einer modernen Grossstadt. Sie kickt und springt, seufzt und schmerzt. Zwei Bandoneons, Geige, Klavier, Cello, Kontrabass legen die Fährten, auf denen sich der Sänger dieser argentinischen Truppe entfaltet. Die sieben Musiker haben alle in wichtigen Bands gespielt, bevor sie 2005 Astillero gründeten. Seitdem haben sie neun Welt-Tourneen unternommen, an vielen Festivals gespielt und in Buenos Aires ein eigenes Theater eröffnet.

Fidelis Strings ist ein Streicherensemble, welches aus Lehrpersonen und Absolventinnen und Absolventen der kantonalen Mittelschule Kollegium St. Fidelis in Stans besteht.

Ærø Harmonikafestival 23.-25. maj 2014 - Denmark

by Diatonic News
ACCORDION FESTIVAL IN MARSTAL 2014 23 - 25 May
21st accordion festival with popular music over the entire weekend in Marstal.

By tradition a big pole tent is placed on the berth area of Marstal Yacht Club, and two more stages are set inside the Yacht Club and in the rowing club facing the harbour.

Accordionists from Ærø, "the mainland", i.e. from outside the island, and from Sweden and Norway - and possibly Germany - will be playing from the three stages from Friday afternoon till Sunday afternoon.

On Saturday morning, the town of Marstal will be transformed to a multi arena where groups will be playing from every nook and every street corner.

From the stages, all genres of music will sound. "Gammeldans" - the Swedish and Norwegian type of folk dancing -, where cheerful dancers will fill the dance floor. Top-of-the-pops tunes where everybody can dance and sing along. Latin rhythms. Swing. Jazz. Sweet Swedish ballads by Bellman and Taube. Not forgetting the popular 30 minutes with Marstal Småborgerlige Sangforening, the merry Marstal mariners association, who sing shanties and maritime songs on Saturday evening - not to be missed!

The full programme will be available in early May, but we are able to disclose at this early stage our two dear guests from Norway: Odd Arne Halaas, singer and accordionist, and Reidar Dahle, guitarist, who will also appear at an accordion concert in Marstal Church on Thursday evening 22 May at 7.30pm.

NO ENTRANCE FEES – for Marstal at the Marina (GPS address: Sejlmagervej 1, 5960 Marstal).

BEGINNER, INTERMEDIATE + ADVANCED LEVEL WORKSHOPS
BANDONEON BOOTCAMP STRUCTURE
The bootcamp contains four modules spread over two days. All modules will be taught in the school recital room which has excellent acoustics.
Day one focuses on core technique and practise methods. There will also be time on day one for masterclasses on solo repertoire for any participants who would like the opportunity to perform and receive feedback.
Day two will focus more on aspects of tango music, and we will work on ensemble pieces. There will be an opportunity to perform the pieces we work on in the evening milonga for anyone who wishes to participate.

The first day of the workshop is suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced, and is the foundation for all of the advanced techniques that are introduced on day two. The second day is more suitable for players with a medium level and above - already able to play some pieces in a range of keys.
All participants will need to bring their own instrument.

SATURDAY MAY 25 2013
Module 1 (10.00-13.00): Foundations of bandoneon technique. Level: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced.

Module 2 (14.00-17.00): Finger technique. Level: Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced.

A range of exercises will be presented which develop independence, fluency and virtuosity of finger technique.

SUNDAY MAY 26 2013
Module 3 (10.00-13.00): The elements of the tango. Level: Intermediate, Advanced.

The rhythmic elements of the tango will be presented and integrated into the core technique. We will also look at the techniques of transcription: creating a truly authentic sound. And we will look at simple improvisation techniques.

Module 4 (14.00-17.00): The techniques of the Orquesta Típica. Level: Intermediate, Advanced.

Continuing to look at tango rhythm and melodic expression, using ensemble pieces which will be prepared for a performance slot in the evening milonga for anyone who wishes to participate.

BIO-rchestraBottoni
Nata dall’evoluzione della Piccola Orchestra La Viola e dall’incontro di musicisti delle province di Roma, Frosinone, Latina e Napoli, l’OrchestraBottoni, formazione di ispirazione popolare con influenze mediterranee, è considerata uno dei gruppi più inediti nel panorama della world-music italiana. E’ attiva dal 1994. A testimonianza di questo fanno fede le numerose collaborazioni sia discografiche che live con Daniele Sepe, Peppe Barra, Angelo Branduardi, Franco Battiato, Eugenio Barba, Riccardo Tesi, Marc Perrone, Blue Stuff, Lino Cannavacciuolo, Vincenzo Zitello, Hector Ulises Passarella, Arnoldo Foà, Fratelli Mancuso, Alfio Antico, Mosshen Kasirossafar, i numerosi concerti in Italia (Folkest, Lithos, Roma incontra il mondo-Villa Ada, Teatro Eliseo-Roma, Liri Blues Festival, I Suoni delle Dolomiti, Auditorium S.Chiara-Trento, Teatro Palladium-Roma, Paleariza, etc.) ed all’estero (Francia, Danimarca, Germania, Polonia, Albania).
IL CONCERTO
Un’orchestra e una voce, un viaggio tra la tradizione mediterranea, l’etnojazz e…
L’ensemble filtra, attraverso l’originale suono che da anni la identifica, tutte le idee che riceve. Allo stesso tempo, tramite il suo lavoro di ricerca, si fa protagonista di una contaminazione continua.
Le armonie e le melodie polifoniche della numerosa sezione di organetti, sorretta da un inedito organetto basso (bassoon), il collante ritmico tenuto dalle batteria percussiva, insieme alla voce di Antonella Costanzo e ai fraseggi del solista Alessandro D’Alessandro, sono l’espressione di questa particolare sperimentazione. Le atmosfere sono varie, come la provenienza dei brani, con uno stile che spazia dal classico al contemporaneo, con sfumature di funky, reggae, afrobeat, etc.
L’OrchestraBottoni è una formazione che cerca di coniugare tradizione ed evoluzione.
Nel corso del concerto presenterà alcuni brani tratti dal disco “The Journey” (Dodicilune 2011), inciso insieme al sassofonista jazz americano Dan Moretti.

Described by The Guardian as ‘the finest instrumental duo on the traditional scene’ and twice winners of the BBC Radio 2 folk award for Best Duo, Spiers & Boden have made the genre of spontaneous, punky English folk very much their own stomping ground. Loud, proud, and with just a few acoustic instruments, they create a multitude of textures upon which they present traditional stories and dance music which have taken them on to the main stages of major festivals.

The band is led by Aidan Sheehan, his Lafayette "Clarence Junior Martin" Cajun accordion and "Seydel" Blues harmonicas plus Martin Blake on a beautiful white "Gretsch" and a "Swamptone Telecaster B-bender" guitar. Add whiskey-soaked vocal harmonies, heartfelt lyrics delivered in both English and Cajun-French and you're right there, back on the Bayou boys...

Their swamp-rocking rhythms are augmented by Dave Wood (wild "Psy-de-co" fiddle) and a driving rhythm section featuring Dennis Schiavon (aka Vince Santini) or Geoff Ockenden / Danny Kilbride on bass and Pedro Brown on drums. Ted Bunting (blistering Zydeco sax) plays when available. Our good friends Andrew Williams, Li'l Queenie or Thom Podgoretsky may feature on fabulous Zydeco frottoirs.

Da quando hanno iniziato nel 1978 sono stati in tour in tutto il mondo, dal Festival di Glastonbury Festival, fino agli angoli più sperduti di Africa, Sud America ed Estremo Oriente. Innumerevoli le folk band che li citano come ispirazione e influenza principale per la loro musica. Arrivano a Maison Musique con un nuovo album, pubblicato nell'ottobre 2013, che li conferma al top della musica folk mondiale. Strange News è stato registrato in Inghilterra e Francia e riconferma il talento della band per la composizione di melodie per la danza che immediatamente entrano a far parte del patrimonio tradizionale della musica folk, "musica tradizionale di domani" direbbe qualcuno. Non mancano, naturalmente, nel disco ance alcune melodie tradizionali del repertorio anglo-sassone. Il disco è arricchito da un ospite eccezionale come Patrick Bouffard.

I Blowzabella sono: Andy Cutting (organetto), Jo Freya (voce, sassofono, clarinetto), Paul James (cornamuse, sassofono, whistle), Gregory Jolivet (ghironda), David Shepherd (violino), Barn Stradling (basso), Jon Swayne (cornamuse e sassofono).
