Mar., 5, 2007
February 14, 2007
Accordionist Ariel Johnson says he's a longtime fan of the classic conjunto groups like Conjunto Bernal and even his own dad, Chalito Johnson.
(Courtesy)
Ariel Johnson makes CD debut
"I have always liked El Conjunto Bernal," Johnson said recently. "I liked them because they have their own style, and they wrote a lot of their songs. And their vocal harmonies are good too."Johnson is hosting his own CD release party Friday night at Arturo's Sports Bar, 3310 S. Zarzamora. Also performing are Flavio Longoria y Conjunto Kings, Los Astronautas, BB Shotbird, Los Homies de Andy Saenz and DJ Bong Bob.Johnson's debut CD, "Conimigo" was produced by J.P. Guerra and Charlie Cole at the Golden Eagle Records studio. Johnson also wrote all of the 10 songs on the CD, with some translation help from his dad, including one reggaeton tuned titled "Tu y Yo."Johnson said he included a reggaeton tune because "I wanted everyone to know we're playing for everyone. Not just the older crowd, but also the younger fans too."The rest of Johnson's band are drummer Rick Perez, bass player Joe Rodriguez, and bajo sexto player Mando Tejeda.Ramiro Burr, San Antonio Express News

Stockport A/C News - March/April 2007
Mar., 5, 2007
Rob Howard
On Wednesday, March 14th, SAC sees the welcome return of Bert Santilly as our Club Night guest artiste.  Bert is a most accomplished and versatile accordionist, with a wide repertoire, and known to many of you as a workshop leader at the Caister and Pakefield festivals.  Admission is £4.   As always, we begin promptly at 8pm, and all are welcome, including those who would like to play a tune or two.  SAC is now based at Woodley Methodist Church, Chapel Street/Hyde Road, Woodley, Stockport, Cheshire SK6 1BL.Early in February we received the terrible news that Anne Kearney had died, after a battle with cancer over the last three years. Anne did not recover from the anaesthetic after an operation for liver cancer.  Anne, originally from Ireland, travelled weekly for several years to practices all the way from her home in North Wales, and was a member of the SAC Orchestra, the Weaver Valley Accordion Band and Chester AC.  She will be missed.  R.I.P.  Soon after learning about Anne came the very sad news that Pete Fitzpatrick, who attended many of our Club Night concerts, had also passed away, aged 72. Pete Fitz, as he was known, was a former All Britain Irish traditional champion on both piano accordion and piano, and had also played the organ in clubs, backing singers.  Pete was a legend on the Manchester Irish scene, and was very well liked by all who knew him.  He attended many of our Club Night concerts, and once played a short spot for us.  R.I.P.We have been without our MDs during February, with Peter Whiteley visiting relatives in Australia and Brian Jenkins laid low through the prolonged effects of a really bad cold. Chris Green and Derek Pritchard ‘drew the short straw’ as stand in leaders.  Conducting is most definitely not a soft option, and the rest of us are grateful for their efforts at keeping us in order and leading us. SAC Vice President John Nixon is playing concertina with a small jazz combo at a pub called The Horseshoe, on Thursday March 1st, 9 till 11pm approx. Admission is free and the Horseshoe (a CAMRA approved pub for its beer) is located in the small village of Lawton Heath End, Staffordshire ST7 3RA - about 6-miles SW of Congleton.SAC members Rachel White and Sarah Hodge entered the NAO North Central Area Accordion Festival in Saltaire, near Bradford, on February 24th. Rachel came first in the Senior Polka, and second in the Advanced Solo Test Piece + Own Choice sections. Rachel and Sarah came second in the Open Premier Duet section. Well done, girls, and good luck at the forthcoming UK Championships, which take place at The Spa, Scarborough, over the Bank Holiday weekend, May 4th/6th. Rachel and Sarah have entered a duet section, and Rachel is contesting the NAO Advanced Championship title.  Our next Club Night concert with Bert Santilly is on the horizon, so I hope you can make it for yet another night of great music.Rob Howard        (0161) 480 8858        email:  This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it "> This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it  
Emily Smith Band - March gigs & news!
Mar., 5, 2007
Emily Smith
Hello folks

I hope you are all well and cheery. Sorry I have been out of touch since the New Year. January was a busy time as always for folkies here in Scotland with Celtic Connections festival taking place in Glasgow.
This year I was involved in 2 shows – one being a concert of Robert Tannahill songs and the other with my fellow songwriters from the Burnsong Song House (the songwriting project I took part in back in Nov 2005.) February being a short month came and went in a flash, I spent most of it on tour....   Emily Smith

As mentioned above I was out on tour with the Burnsong songwriters for much of January. We did a Tune up Tour around Scotland. It was a fantastic time for us to all get together again and resurrect the songs we wrote together in 2005. Our Glasgow show in the City Halls was packed and received top class reviews in the Scotsman and The Herald.
Sell Out Germany Tour
During Celtic Connections I recorded a song for BBC4 which will be shown on one of 2 programmes they have made about the festival. I sang ‘May Colven’, a traditional ballad which will be on my new album and performing with me were regular band mate Jamie McClennan and new guy Ross Milligan on guitar.
The programme will be aired on Saturday 17th March at 9pm.

Farewell to Steve Byrne....and Hello to New Guitarist Ross Milligan

It is located just near the small bridge off the A27 opposite the Ham Manor Golf Course turning off towards Rustington and is on the left only 2 mins from the main road. 
 
I have heard the food is very good there and the music will be good too!!  
 
It is to be called a 'London Night' so we shall be playing a lot of songs in between some good lively accordion music, including a bit of Austrian and Latin.
 
We look forward to seeing you there!
 
Best wishes

Contributed by Heather Masefield

On Thursday February 22nd there was a concert by the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra at the Auckland Town Hall. 

After the concert, the audience were invited into the bar where resident orchestra accordionist Tatiana Lanchtchikova was drawing in the crowds by playing Tangos and Hungarian music with a violinist from the orchestra.  The conductor Eckehard Stier, from Germany, then joined in playing jazz piano.

The audience adored the transformation from serious concert music to fun folk and entertainment music to finish off a great night.
