Tom Russia with Love !
May, 28, 2007

UKAO catches up with 17 year old UK accordionist Thom Hardaker from North Yorkshire who has been invited to study the accordion at the St Petersburg Conservatory in Russia by the well respected Russian virtuoso accordionist Professor Oleg Sharov…

Thom started off by learning playing the keyboard with a local music teacher called Harry Hinchcliffe who teaches keyboard, piano, guitar and accordion. Thom soon found his interests were with the piano accordion and started playing accordion at the age of 7. At the age of 11 by which time Thom had reached grade 5 Harry recommended that he change from a piano to a button accordion. Starting afresh and after 4 years of hard work and much practice Thom achieved grade 8 in his practical exam and grade 6 in theory and now regularly plays in local concerts and fundraising events both solo and with the Craven Accordion Orchestra and the Rob Thorn Band
.

In mid-november 2006 whilst playing with the Craven Accordion Orchestra in Giggleswick, North Yorkshire Thom met Professor Oleg Sharov – the main star of the event and prolific Russian virtuoso accordionist well known all around the world. Harry Hinchcliffe had organised with Professor Sharov beforehand for Thom to attend a Master Class with Professor Sharov to have a fresh set of eyes on his repertoire and for Professor Sharov’s valuable and well respected input. Thom had a challenging one hour which he enjoyed immensely having had an insight as to what study was like at the highest level and found he had gained a great deal from the master class, with Professor Sharov being extremely friendly and helpful. Following a brief discussion about Thom’s future career aspirations Professor Sharov suggested that he would like Thom to come study with him in St. Petersburg in the next year adding that he considered that Thom had the potential to become a professional performer. Thom passed his contact details to Professor Sharov and left it at that, six months later he received a phone call from Oleg asking "Is that Thom? - are you still interested in coming to study in Russia with me?" to which Thom without hesitation replied – “Yes please..” - an offer of a lifetime he couldn’t refuse!
 

Thom intends to go to St. Petersburg in September 2007 for one years study initially on the conservatory’s preparatory programme; he will then have the option after this time to stay for another year or possibly 4 years – the four year course teaching up to doctorate level giving a D.M.A. qualification (Doctor of Musical Arts).  Thom was excited to learn that he will be staying in a special accommodation block built for the conservatory students.

Thom will be funding this study course by himself and is currently saving everything he can towards the costs of this exciting educational opportunity, if anybody would like to sponsor him (no matter how small the amount) they can contact Thom direct on Tel: 01535 - 632332 or write to him at:-

Thom Hardaker - The Kings Arms, High Street, Sutton-in-Craven, North Yorkshire, BD20 7LP

Or email Thom on:- This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it

UKAO have set up an online donation fund for Thom called 'Tom Russia with Love Fund' where anyone can donate no matter how small an amount via Paypal and a safe secure connection.

The Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center, with the help of Miller Lite, the San Benito Chamber of Commerce, Su Clinica Familiar, and the City of San Benito is proud to announce the 16th Annual Conjunto Festival. This three-day event has become a staple event for the community, attracting over 5,000 people for a celebration of live Texas-Mexico Conjunto music.


The Conjunto Festival is NMCAC’s largest project of the year and emphasizes preserving a deep south Texas cultural treasure – conjunto music. Narciso Martinez, a native of San Benito, Texas, is credited as being “the father of Texas Mexican conjunto.” “This festival is the only show of its kind, closely related to what Don Narciso originated in the 1930’s,” says Rogelio Nuñez, co-founder and board member of NMCAC. “All these musical groups are loyal to the conjunto tradition. We invite everyone to come learn about this tradition and celebrate with us in an event that connects you to the past.”

Listen to Pearl Fawcett - Adriano online - Click Here!
Pearl Fawcett - Adriano is indeed thequintessential accordionist performer of her generation and appears to have it all,
 she is a pleasant articulate attractive lady who makes each and every member of her audience feel special with her confident playing and winning smile.
She has bellow control and bass fingering to die for, her right hand touch and articulation are of the first order, her choice of musical programme content is always fresh interesting and varied, before performing each piece of music she explains in detail interesting facts about its history and that of the composer often with comments about the style of music or dance.
 Pearl Fawcett-Adriano is, in my opinion, the best accordionist performer that we have right now in the UK and accordion students should make every effort to attend one of her superb performances. - Ron Bennett

USA TOUR
I’ll now be on tour for the remainder of May on a tour largely made up of Scottish folk clubs. Some of the best laughs I’ve had on tour have been playing in folk clubs and village halls so I’m really looking forward to this tour. Since many clubs struggle to host bigger band line ups both space wise and financially, Jamie and I will be doing this tour as a duo which is a relatively new venture for us but one we’ve been working on for a while alongside the band gigs.
Our tour begins though with a concert in Sanquhar Town Hall, Dumfries & Galloway where we will play as a three piece with new addition to the band Ross Milligan. This will be Ross’s first performance with me in my home region.

On the Edge With Kimmo Pohjonen
May, 15, 2007
If you prefer accordion music that doesn’t play by the rules, check out Paul Sullivan’s excellent biography of Finnish avant-garde/experimental accordionist Kimmo Pohjonen. Playing a 5-row chromatic accordion, Pohjonen uses electronic effects like samples and loops, as well as heavy doses of improvisation, to push his instrument into uncharted territory. In addition to his solo work, he has collaborated with percussionist/sampler Samuli Kosminen, the Kronos Quartet, and former King Crimson members Pat Mastelotto and Trey Gunn.“Sometimes it can be a bit strange for people that an accordion player is doing the kind of stuff that I am doing. But I’m getting such good feedback… I hear comments like, ‘I have never liked accordion, and this is the first time that I’ve liked some accordion music.’ And that is the best comment that you can get.”According to his site, Pohjonen’s mission is “to expand the capabilities, sound, performance, scope and experience of the accordion in many different settings to levels never before seen or heard.” Judge for yourself — here’s a video clip of Pohjonen performing solo in 2002:Kimmo Pohjonen: Keko

Ramon Ayala, El Rey Del Acordeon
May, 12, 2007
Whether your Cinco de Mayo plans involve joining the crowds at a local festival or simply enjoying a Corona at home, you’ll need a suitable soundtrack. Might I suggest something from the catalog of norteo accordion legend, Ramn Ayala?Known as “El Rey del Acordeon”, Ayala is a superstar on both sides of the border and through his distinctive accordion playing and songwriting, has set the standard for norteo music. In his forty year career, he has led two of norteo’s most successful conjuntos: first, Los Relampagos Del Norte (”Lightning Bolts of the North”) with singer Cornelio Reyna, and his current group, Los Bravos del Norte.Here’s a classic track off his greatest hits collection, Antologia de un Rey:Ramon Ayala: Mi Piquito de Oro (MP3 download)
