2015 Paolo Soprani Award to Andrea Bocelli - Italy

by Diatonic News
The prestigious Premio Paolo Soprani Award has been created in 2010, by the Comune di Castelfidardo, the International Accordion Museum of Castelfidardo and Scandalli Accordions.

The idea was to create a prestigious award in the name of the founder of the accordion industry of Castelfidardo and to make the award every year to a person who achieved something at very high level for the image and diffusion of Italian accordion.

The award is usually presented during the “Musei in Musica” event. The Mayor of Castelfidardo Mirco Soprani, the President of Scandalli Accordions Mirco Patarini and the President of the International Accordion Museum Vincenzo Canali announced the 2015 Paolo Soprani Award to Andrea Bocelli (picture above) at the Opening Concert of the Castelfidardo International Competitions and Festival, for having raised the image of the accordion all over the world, thanks to his extraordinary musical activity.

Due to previous commitments, Andrea Bocelli could not attend this Opening Concert but a video of the presentation to him was shown to the audience. Video above.

Previous winners of the prestigious Premio Paolo Soprani Award are:
2010 to Gian Mario Spacca, President of Marche Region;
2011 to Vincenzo Canali, President of the Accordion Museum Castelfidardo;
2012 to Harley Jones, Founder of Accordions Worldwide internet news/culture sites;
2013 to Viacheslav Semionov, composer, concert artist and teacher;
2014 to Raymond Bodell, President of the Confédération Internationale des Accordéonistes (CIA);
2015 to Andrea Bocelli for having raised the accordion image all over the world.

The award sponsor is Scandalli Accordions and the Premio "Paolo Soprani" Award statue is the design creation of famous Italian sculptor Franco Campanari and is a real work of art in bronze, coming complete in a specially designed box with a published book about the art of Franco Campanari.

Special guest - Simone Marini, bandoneon (Italy)

Argentine tango - it's more than a dance, more than music, it's a sense embodied in the movement. It's a world for two, full of love and sensuality, sadness and joy, meetings and partings. "In Argentina, they say:" Tango - a novel for three minutes. " In life there is no way to live a lot of novels, and someone even one happens. Therefore, they try to live for those three minutes that dance. And so in Argentina, there are people who start dancing at eight o'clock, and finish at seven o'clock. It turns out that half of their lives they spend from the novel to the novel "(Alejandra Mantinyan).
Nostalgic tunes sizzling rhythms and sensual Argentine tango will be performed by the magnificent Russian ensemble Solo Tango Orquesta, rapidly soaring to the top of the world tango Olympus. The staff of the incredibly short time has gained wide international recognition, winning the XXXV International Competition Festival internazionale della fisarmonica in Italy. Today Solo Tango Orquesta is the official orchestra of the biggest international tango festivals (Tangomagia in Amsterdam, Roma Tango meeting in Rome, Istanbul Tango festival in Istanbul, "Tango of the White Nights" in St. Petersburg, and others.). The sound of the ensemble is distinguished by the highest mastery and powerful energy. Traditionally guest of Solo Tango Orquesta become the best Russian dance couples - winners of international competitions and festivals.

Duration: 2 compartments for 45 minutes.

Специальный гость – Симоне МАРИНИ, бандонеон (Италия)

Аргентинское танго – это больше чем танец, больше чем музыка, это чувства, воплощенные в движении. Это мир для двоих, полный любви и чувственности, печали и радости, встреч и расставаний. «В Аргентине говорят: “Танго – роман на три минуты”. В жизни нет возможности прожить много романов, а у кого-то даже одного не случается. Поэтому их стараются прожить за те три минуты, которые танцуют. И поэтому в Аргентине встречаются люди, которые начинают танцевать в восемь вечера, а заканчивают в семь утра. Получается, что половину своей жизни они проводят от романа к роману» (Алехандра Мантиньян).
Ностальгические мелодии и обжигающие ритмы чувственного аргентинского танго прозвучат в исполнении великолепного российского ансамбля Solo Tango Orquesta, стремительно взлетевшего на вершину мирового танго-Олимпа. Коллектив за невероятно короткое время приобрел широкое международное признание, став победителем XXXV международного конкурса Festival internazionale della fisarmonica в Италии. Сегодня Solo Tango Orquesta является официальным оркестром крупнейших международных танго-фестивалей (Tangomagia в Амстердаме, Roma Tango meeting в Риме, Istanbul Tango festival в Стамбуле, «Танго белых ночей» в Санкт-Петербурге и др.). Звучание ансамбля отличают высочайшее исполнительское мастерство и мощная энергетика. По традиции гостями программ Solo Tango Orquesta станут лучшие российские танцевальные пары – призеры международных конкурсов и фестивалей.

Продолжительность: 2 отделения по 45 минут.

CABARET ROCK DE BRIC ET DE BROC à - France

by Diatonic News
Bric e Broc
C’est un cabaret excentrique et polyglotte, traversé de saynètes oniriques et de sons intrigants. On songe aux années folles, mais Tom Waits, Marc Perrone ou Radiohead ne sont jamais loin. Il est habité par la chanteuse et comédienne Jen Rival et par le multi-instrumentiste Nicolas Méheust, architectes de cet univers à la Weill où les trouvailles musicales s’égrènent à la guitare autant qu’à l’accordéon. Et cerise sur le gâteau, ils ont réservé au Grand Soufflet la première de leur spectacle Lunacy Opera. Un cadeau qui ne se refuse pas !

Any Answer to/regarding this instrument? - WORLDWIDE

by Diatonic News
To all our Readers - a question from Will Meyer, regarding an instrument, that he has bought.....pls help, if you can!

Dear Accordions Worldwide,

I've played accordions for years now, but I just bought an instrument I've never seen before and I couldn't find any information online about it.

I'd call it a tabletop concertina (see photos).

Can you give me any information about it?

Thank you. Will Meyer

28th Accordion & Fiddle Festival - UK

by Diatonic News
The 28th Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Festival dates are
Thursday 8th October to Monday 12th October 2015

The annual festival mainly concentrates on music provided by Shetland's two most popular instruments - the accordion and the fiddle.

The festival takes place over a hectic four-day period in early October. As with Shetland Folk Festival, musicians from all over the world perform at the event, although emphasis is on Scottish Dance music. Local musicians feature prominently in the event line-up. Tunes are swapped and musicians make new friends in the sessions that are an important part of the festival; younger musicians find them especially valuable in broadening their experience.
Adopting the tried and trusted format of widespread community involvement, the event incorporates most areas of Shetland. It culminates in one of the biggest traditional dances to take place anywhere in the UK. Around a dozen different dance bands take it in turn to perform to 1,500 enthusiasts in the local sports centre in what amounts to a highly enjoyable "traditional rave".
The festival is a must for anyone who enjoys the sound of traditional music and has the stamina to absorb it for four hectic days.

by Diatonic News
Robert Schmidt Tango Orchester
Burg Fùrsteneck
30. Oktober 2015 18.30 Uhr bis 01. November 2015 13.00 Uhr

Leitung: Robert Schmidt

Die klassische Tango-Orchester-Besetzung besteht aus Bandoneons, Violinen, Klavier und Bass. Wir wollen sie in unserem Kurs für alle Instrumente öffnen und ein kleines „orquesta tipica“-Repertoire erarbeiten. Anhand von einfach strukturierten Stücken werden wir herausfinden, was den Tango eigentlich zum Tango macht und welche Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten uns die Melodien, Harmonien und Rhythmen bieten.

Nachdem wir uns mit den Basics des Tango beschäftigt haben, können wir uns an vielschichtigere Kompositionen heranwagen. Besondere Beachtung finden die Möglichkeiten zur Bereicherung und Variation der Originalmelodie sowie der Wechsel zwischen dem begleitenden Spiel für alle Instrumente und einzelnen Soli.

Vorerfahrungen: Der Kurs ist geeignet für jedes Niveau außer für Anfänger/innen. Grundfertigkeiten auf dem eigenen Instrument müssen vorhanden sein.

Kursgebühren: 240 - 290 € (inkl. 125,00 € Ü/VP), 140 € Ermäßigter

16th Annual Willie Keane Memorial Weekend - Doonbeg/Ireland

He came to prominence with the Mullagh Set which won numerous competitions throughout Ireland.

After frequent appearances on TV, he toured the U.S. with Clare's best-known traditional artists and regularly taught set dancing at the Willie Clancy Summer School.

His passing away in 1998 has left a huge void in Doonbeg. This weekend of music, song and dance is our tribute to him.

5. FESTIVAL DE TANGO DE VALENTIN ALSINA - Argentina
5to Festival de Tango de Valentín Alsina – 10, 11, 12 Octubre 2015

Declarado de Interés Cultural por la Secretaría de Cultura de la Presidencia de la Nación Argentina

Valentín Alsina es una ciudad donde no se respira ni arte snob, ni magia, ni excentricidades. Se respira trabajo, esfuerzo y amor por el quehacer cotidiano. Así lo demostraron tantos personajes popularmente ilustres que nacieron y se criaron en sus calles, sus bares, sus clubes. Íconos como Sandro o Edmundo Rivero concentraron en su arte la esencia del barrio que los vio crecer y, si hablamos de esencia popular, hablamos de Tango. A raíz de este contexto único decidimos instituir nuestro festival, el Primer Festival de Tango de Valentín Alsina, “el primero de muchos”, como nos gusta decir.

15. American Cajun,Blues & Zydeco Festival - Germany/Switzerland

by Diatonic News
The festival celebrates it's 15th anniversary in 2015. It will tour throughout Germany and Switzerland to bring authentic music from Louisiana to the fans and friends of Cajun, Blues and Zydeco. The festival honors these particular genres from Louisiana with artists from USA and Europe. 2015 we'll present from Louisiana two times Grammynominee 'Magnolia Sisters', 'Lil Buck' Sinegal, legendary guitarplayer for Clifton Chenier and the guy Eric Clapton says is the best bluesguitarplayer alive and the CFMA winners for Best CD, Cajun Roosters.

Over the last few years a new sound has been gaining momentum here in Europe. More and more bands have been visiting these shores bringing a new sound from over the atlantic ocean. This music is using familiar instruments like guitars, accordions and fiddles played in a way that is fresh and vibrant. Its home is in swamps and prairies of Southwest Louisiana but bands from over the seas are finding a warm welcome in clubs and festivals 3000 miles away from their roots. The music isn’t new of course, its traditions are centuries old but to many people here in Europe it comes like a breath of fresh air. With its driving beat, hearfelt emotions, and trance like melodies it strikes a chord with 21st century ears.


Since 2001 artists from Europe and USA have been performing at the annual Cajun & Zydeco Festival:
Steve Riley & Racines Trio, T'Monde, Jeffery Broussard, Cedric Watson, Leon Chavis, Corey Ledet, Bobby Michot, Randy Vidrine, Mitch Reed, Downtown Cajun Band, River Zydeco Band, Blue Bayou, Pain d’Mais, Mousse Espagnole, Zydecomotion, Zyderythmics, Cajun Pioneers, Des Fais Do-Do, ZigaZag, Zydeco Alligators, Zydeco Fever, Ludwig Seuss Band, Cajun Company, Breaux, Lil Jim and Deepzone Zydeco, Pete Contino Band, Sarah Savoy and The Francadians, ZydeGoNutz, Lafayette Rhythm Devils, Mama Rosin, Lynn August, Brother Dege and Buddy Flett

FESTA MAJOR & ROCK’N’ROLL

Ils nous avaient quitté sur un triomphe en 2012, les meilleurs rumberos du monde reviennent cette année en habitués du festival, et devraient à nouveau régaler le parterre de leur rumba catalane convulsive, façonnée dans les meilleurs pots, où l’accordéoniste virtuose Joan Garriga et ses comparses ont su associer la tension gitane, la syncope caribéenne à la puissance d’un supergroupe de rock.

CD "Medicine for the Blues" by Whiskey and Woman - Scotland

by Diatonic News
CD Whiskey for Medicine by Whiskey and Woman
Their Latest CD "Button and Bows" of Whiskey & Women is currently only available at live shows, you can instead order their CD " Medicine for the Blues" -
A collection of songs old and new to lift the spirit and sooth the soul! released 02 August 2014

All songs arranged and performed by Whiskey & Women ©2014 americana folk bluesy cajun folk punk old time Oakland

Their name they got from their first street performance together: they had only an hour to earn enough money to buy a bottle of Jameson. It was a cold, rainy day in Edinburgh, Scotland. They had never rehearsed a lick of music together. Did they succeed? Yes! They busted out Irish, Scottish, and Welsh drinking songs, sea shanties, Cajun two-steps, honky-tonk originals, impromptu harmonies, and a whole lot of stomp and holler. The Scots responded with generous tips. The ladies knew they had something special: a mix of musicality and fun that was powerful even in its raw, unrefined state. Years later, in ornate venues and lowly street corners, the fun still shines through their performances like a beam of sunshine through a 25 year-old single malt.
