Archie’s Box Academy (Getting Started) - UK

by Diatonic News
Archie Churchill-MossMonday 24 Jan 10:30am–1pm, 2022

Now in term two, Archie Churchill-Moss Archie continues to support beginner melodeon players in these enjoyable once-a month workshops. Each 2.5 hour session will present a new challenge, with time for individual help to support less confident / less advanced players and to stretch more ambitious / more accomplished musicians. You’ll be learning new tunes and techniques each month, while also developing a working knowledge of music theory, and your own creativity as the course progresses.

Who’s it For?
Archie’s ‘Getting Started’ workshop is players of the DG melodeon, levels 0 and 1

The Tutor
Archie Churchill-Moss: Widely regarded as one of the best players of English traditional folk, Archie has worked as a session musician for some of the UK’s top folk acts (Cara Dillon, Eliza Carthy, Blair Dunlop), as well as performing with the trio, ‘Moore, Moss, Rutter’ , the outfit which saw him receive the coveted BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award in 2011.

The past two years have seen Archie tour extensively across Western Europe and perform at some of Europe’s top music festivals, including headline slots at ‘Colours of Ostrava (Czech Republic), Tønder festival (Denmark), Cropredy Convention (UK) and Cambridge folk festival (UK).

Vier intensive Tage mit Workshops, Sessions und Kaminfeuer: Genießt den Austausch und neue Impulse an Drehleier und Nyckelharpa, im BalFolk- und NeoTrad-Ensemble, in inspirierender Gesellschaft und hochwertigem Burgambiente. Neben den Instrumental- und Ensemble-Workshops haben wir für den Abend ein abwechslungsreiches Programm im Gepäck.

Da man noch nicht einschätzen können, ob im Januar Singen und Tanzen erlaubt sein wird, ist ein flexibles Programm aus Sessions und musikalischen Präsentationen geplant. So kann man auch nach den Workshops zusammenkommen und den Abend anschließend am offenen Kamin ausklingen lassen. Um dann in den nächsten Januarmorgen zu starten, werden kleine erfrischende Körperübungen im Freien angeboten – mit traditionellen und zeitgenössischen Impulsen für einen lockeren Start in den Tag und am Instrument.

The name Joe Burke has been synonymous with Irish traditional music in general and the accordion in particular for over 60 years. His passing in February 2021 marked the end of one of our most celebrated musical careers but long-time friend and student Daithí Gormally, together with the legend Frankie Gavin and pianist Catherine McHugh, has ensured that his legacy continues – capturing the musical impact and the spirited lilt of Joe’s inimitable style in an experience not to be missed.

Boxing Banjo in Jan 28 - Ireland/Dublin

by Diatonic News
JANUARY 28, 2022 8:30 PM
Lost Lane, 1-2 Adam Court, Grafton Street, Dublin, D02 RP20, Ireland

ailing from the picturesque west coast of Ireland, Boxing Banjo bring an exciting and fresh sound to the Irish music scene. Comprising four of the most accomplished Irish musicians, brothers Darragh and Micheal Healy along with Joseph McNulty and Seán O’Meara have amassed in excess of 20 All Ireland titles on various instruments and in singing along with 4 world bodhrán titles.

They have toured extensively together and performed in countries including Russia, Germany and the United States of America. In 2019 they completed a 34 date tour of Germany and also made a hugely successful debut at the world renowned Milwaukee Irish Fest in the USA. Through the combination of their considerable individual experience and talents they have created a unique blend of traditional Irish music and song, old time and bluegrass music. Combining striking vocal arrangements with a myriad of instruments including button accordion, banjo, guitar, mandolin, bodhrán and fiddle, they possess “a startling degree of accomplished maturity” (Irish Music Magazine).

Their debut album, ‘Round #1’, described by Bill Margeson as “thoroughly delightful”, was released to critical acclaim in 2018. Showcasing the bands versatility, this album is imbued with a tangible reverence for their roots as well as more than a sprinkling of contemporary twists.

Louise Jallu
Video: Louise Jallu interview and then performing Astor Piazzolla’s “Oblivion” on the Culturebox show. Main performance starts at 7:03

Jeude, 06.01.22 / 20h

Du haut de ses 26 ans, dont plus de 20 aux claviers de son instrument, l’incroyable bandonéoniste Louise Jallu s’attaque au maître : Astor Piazzolla, dont on vient de fêter le centenaire de la naissance. Entourée de musiciens à la hauteur de son talent, l’artiste – nominée aux Victoires de la Musique 2021, dans la catégorie Révélation – offre une prestation que l’Argentin ne renierait pas.

Sans tomber dans l’imitation, elle prend comme point de départ le répertoire du maestro et, grâce notamment aux arrangements du compositeur Bernard Cavanna, en tire une authentique création où le tango version 2021 n’a rien perdu de l’engagement ni de la modernité de son prédécesseur. « Sans style, il n’y a pas de musique », affirmait Astor Piazzolla. Louise Jallu a trouvé le sien, indiscutablement.

Faith& Branco @ Tradfest - IE/UK/RU

by Diatonic News
Faith and Branco
Tradfringe / JANUARY 29, 2022 3:30 PM IFI

This intimate documentary follows the cross-cultural relationship between Faith Elliot and Branko Ristic over seven years. Accordion-player Faith Elliot travels from England to Serbia to learn gypsy accordion. She meets Roma violinist Branko Ristic and, despite language and cultural barriers, they fall in love and decide to marry. They move from Serbia to the UK and although they perform together with enormous verve and talent, their differences become more pronounced and their marriage falls under threat. Irish filmmaker Catherine Harte creates a sensitive portrait of a difficult relationship against a lively backdrop of traditional Roma folk music.

Séamus Begley & Oisín Mac Diarmada with Samantha Harvey - UK/IE/USA/California

by Diatonic News
Séamus Begley & Oisín Mac Diarmada with Samantha Harvey
JANUARY 27, 2022 8:00 PM @ CASTLE HALL
Dame St, Dublin 2, Ireland

Expect sparks to fly when West Kerry accordionist and singer Séamus Begley joins forces with Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada and Californian dancer/pianist Samantha Harvey. Begley is the quintessential Irish musician, an eager storyteller known for his sharp wit and the frisky spontaneity of his accordion-playing. Fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, founder of noted group Téada, has been described by The Irish Echo’s Earle Hitchner as “one of the most gifted and creative traditional fiddlers playing today”. He has appeared as guest soloist with the Southern Georgia Symphony Orchestra in the US and the Wurttembergische Philharmonie in Germany. Providing masterful accompaniment on piano, Samantha Harvey originally from Ventura, California, is also an award-winning step dancer, her energetic dance and musical performances on stage seeing her become an increasingly prominent touring performer and teacher.

Das Tonkünstler-Orchester gilt als einer der größten und wichtigsten musikalischen Botschafter Österreichs, und es ist uns eine große Freude, das Programm "Symphonic Alps" nun als CD und als Konzertfilm auf DVD inkl. HD-Streamingcode mit unserem Publikum teilen zu dürfen.

Octetology - new album - Argentina

by Harley Jones
https://www.kisskissbankbank.com/fr/projects/octetology-nouvel-album/tabs/description

Le Quinteto Emedea et le Cuarteto Lunares se réunissent pour présenter Octetology, un projet dédié au flamboyant et emblématique Octeto Buenos Aires d’Astor Piazzolla. Dès sa création en 2020, Octetology remporte le premier prix du concours international de Castelfidardo en Italie, dans la catégorie « Piazzolla Awards » ; et compte sur de belles programmations (Théâtre de la ville, Festival Tango de Gennevilliers, Festival les Nuits de nacre, Fip Concert Live…).

Lorsqu’il quitte Paris pour retourner s’installer à Buenos Aires en 1955, Astor Piazzolla est résolu à « sortir le tango de la monotonie dans laquelle il s’était embourbé », en bouleversant ses codes et ses traditions par la création d’une musique nouvelle. Il s’entoure des musiciens parmi les plus emblématiques du genre (A. Stampone, L. Federico, E. Francini…) pour créer l’« Octeto Buenos Aires », formation éphémère (1955-1958) qui marquera profondément la musique de Buenos Aires et qui restera comme l’une de tentatives les plus avant-gardiste du compositeur. Malgré l’originalité de la proposition, la virtuosité des interprètes et l’écriture flamboyante, le projet ne reçoit pas l’écho espéré auprès du public et des connaisseurs, ce qui conduira Piazzolla à l’abandonner et à détruire l’intégralité des partions de cet immense répertoire.

Par un important travail de recherche et de réécriture, le Quinteto Emedea et le Cuarteto Lunares parviennent à reconstituer ce répertoire perdu, jamais recréé depuis sa disparition il y a plus de 60 ans !
