Gary Blair at The San Benedetto Belbo Festival Italy June 25th-26th
Feb., 27, 2007

 

Gary Blair pictured during his recent visit to Italy and The San Benedetto Belbo Festival.
 
Please click the link below to view Gary's photo album!  
 
Gary's report is printed below!
 
I was booked by Cooperfisa Accordions to perform at two concerts in and around Verona Italy.
On arrival at Turin airport I was once again greeted with the familiar news that my accordion and luggage were
still in London and weren't due to arrive until the following night!
 My dear friend Romeo Aichino (Cooperfisa) made a detour back to Vercelli and to the Cooperfisa factory and after a guided tour of this magnificent accordion factory we went to the local superstore (Bennets) to purchase some necessary clothing. 
We then headed into the hills (a four hour drive from Vercelli) above Verona to a place called '' Erbrezzo'' where the
 "15th Festa Nazionale Della Fisarmonica" was due to take place the next day.
 Any hope of a long peaceful lie in bed were dashed at 6 am when the local photographer decided it
was time to start proceedings as he opened up both car doors and commenced to play accordion music at a decibel level that "Black Sabbath" would have been most proud of!!
I was really delighted to find out that my dear old friend Gervasio Marcosignori was the president of the music jury and that he, like me, would be playing at the concert on saturday night. (I sadly missed his performance as we had to travel back to Vercelli).
 The other members of the Judges panel were Tiziano Chapelli, Vanio Testi, Cesare Tronel and the Ukrainian accordionist Eugena Cercassova.  Cooperfisa were very kind in lending me a brand new accordion prototype model called a '' Superballo '' which I simply loved to play.
 The whole festival was just superb with some amazing performances by students from as far away as Croatia.
Next day we had a two hour car journey to a festival in San Benedetto Belbo, again well up in the hills. 
 This festival was packed to the gunnels with talent and I was once again delighted to meet up with my good friend Mauro Carra whom I first met at the LondonAccordion Festival back in 2001. We both performed on the same stage (I'm glad that I was on before this musical genius!!)
to a very enthusiastic audience who would clap and cheer showing their appreciation throughout our performances.
All in all it was quite a tiring weekend which I would gladly do again and again.
I have to thank all of the staff at Cooperfisa, Vercelli especially
'' My Family''Romeo, Paolo and the simply wonderful Emiliana, for their outstanding kind hospitality and friendship.

Stockport Nov/Dec Newsletter
Feb., 27, 2007
Rob Howard

                Hi & G’Day,
             On November 22nd, our Club Night concert features the legendary
Pearl Fawcett-Adriano, one of this country’s most brilliant professional
accordionists.  Admission is £5, there are no advance tickets, and we are
anticipating yet another great night for the accordion.  All are welcome. 
And, yes, we do need players for supporting spots.
           Pearl Fawcett-Adriano has achieved international recognition as
an outstanding accordion virtuoso, and she has done much to raise the
standing of the accordion as a 'musical' instrument, both in Britain and
abroad.  Pearl (as Pearl Fawcett) won every major national competition run
by the British Association of Accordionists, and then became Junior and
Senior World Champion in successive years.
          Pearl's vast repertoire ranges from the classics to light music,
French musette and continental, and no matter what kind of music she plays,
her marvellous technique and control of the instrument ensures that the
music is interpreted to the full.  Specialising on the acoustic/electronic
accordion, she brings a completely new dimension to the instrument, and she
has such a command of this instrument that she utilises it to its full
orchestral and musical extent.  Her subtle use of the expression pedal,
split-second changes of registers and perfect bellows control produce a
musical tapestry of multicoloured sounds and effects.
            Pearl has appeared on radio and television many times, and many
of you will remember her regular weekly spot playing French musette solos on
the BBC Radio 2 Charlie Chester Show on Sunday afternoons.  I also remember
watching Pearl play on BBC television’s The Good Old Days, before TV was
taken over by ‘celebrity’ shows and soaps.
           Pearl was the first to teach accordion at a Conservatoire of
Music in Great Britain, and she was the first to give accordion recitals of
classical music at a British Conservatoire, and also on TV.  She was the
first British accordionist and the first Western female accordionist to do a
solo concert tour of the former USSR.  She has many superb recordings
available.
           Stockport Accordion Club is now based at Woodley Methodist
Church, Chapel St, left off the main A560 Hyde-Stockport Road.  From the
M60, take J25, follow the Bredbury signs, and then turn left at the traffic
lights just after MacDonalds/Morrisons.   Woodley Methodist Church is on the
left, next to the Health Centre, not far after the Waggon & Horses pub and
opposite a road named Smithy Green.  The 330 Bus from Hyde or Stockport
stops at the Precinct and is only a few minutes away.  There are two car
parks available.
           At our first band practice at Woodley we were visited by a
photographer from the Stockport Express and by Simon, a presenter from local
radio station Pure Radio, whose frequency is FM107.8.  Peter Whiteley and I
were interviewed, and some of the SAC Band’s music was recorded for
broadcast on Simon’s afternoon show the following day.
           On October 18th, our first Club Night concert at the new venue
starred John Kirkpatrick & Chris Parkinson a.k.a. The Sultans of Squeeze.  
Their programme included Under Paris Skies, El Choclo, The African Waltz,
Genevieve (harmonica/3 row accordion duet) and Squeezebox, The Who’s 1975
chart hit song, and English folk songs and dance tunes.  John and Chris used
different combinations of instruments, with some startling results, most
notably on The Liberty Bell, the old Sousa tune played on bass accordion and
bass concertina.  No wonder that the Monty Python team used to say “And now
for something completely different”!!  All in all, a great show from two
very talented musicians.
           Our club trip to the North Staffs AC 21stBirthday Concert on Sept
29th was a most enjoyable evening.  And what an amazing ‘accordion’ cake -
looked much too good to eat!
           People often ask about local accordion dealers, and within the
Greater Manchester area there are two shops.  The Accordion Shop (a.k.a.
Electronic Accordions Ltd), 54 Drake St, Rochdale; tel 01706 658 283.  This
shop promotes Cooperativa and the Roland V Accordion, but also stocks other
makes, and pianos.  Hobgoblin, based at Johnny Roadhouse Music on Oxford
Road, M/C, sells all sorts of piano and button accordions, including
melodeons, plus other instruments; tel (0161) 273 1000.  Support your local
dealers!
           Seamus Shannon is playing at St Richard’s Social Club, Sutcliffe
Avenue, Longsight, on Tuesday afternoon, November 21st, from 1pm to 3pm. 
Johnny Coleclough and I will be there, so if you fancy seeing, hearing and
meeting our old friend Seamus, please join us.
           On Friday December 8th, at 8pm, we perform our annual charity
Stockport AC Band & Orchestra concert at Broken Cross Club (formerly Henbury
& Broken Cross Institute), Macclesfield.  This is always a good night out,
and all money raised goes to the East Cheshire Hospice, so it’s in a very
worthy cause.  Contact John Jones on 01625 618 691.
          Justin Ryan has left the club – for the time being, at least – and
has gone to New Zealand to train as an airline pilot.  So, if in the future
you are flying away on holiday and hear the sound of an accordion playing in
the captain’s cabin, it’ll probably be Justin!
         The NAO North West Area Championships take place on Sunday December
3rd at the Marine Hall, Fleetwood.  This is the festival we used to organise
at Stockport Town Hall.
         The club’s Christmas party takes place on December 20th, at our new
home.  Due to catering and space, the party is only for playing members,
families and club officials.
         The first Club Night concert in 2007 will be on Wednesday January
10th, and the guest will be the fabulous Julie Best.  What a fantastic start
to the New Year!
          Looking a little further into next year, Foster & Allen are
playing at the Plaza in Stockport on Tuesday April 3rd, at 7.30pm; booking
number - 0161 477 7779.
          I hope to see you at our new home at Woodley Methodist Church for
the debut of Pearl Fawcett-Adriano on November 22nd – this will be quite an
occasion.  If you can’t make it, may I be the first to wish you and yours a
very happy Christmas & New Year (“Get out of here,” I can hear you
saying!!).  In the meantime, keep on squeezin’.

                                    Rob Howard (0161) 480 8858;

Feb., 27, 2007
‘Land of Legends: A Journey through the Carpathian Mountains’ is the title of a show presenting Polish, Hungarian and other mid-European music and dance, to be held at the Ritz Theater, Northeast Minneapolis, April 19th to 22nd. Performances are at 8pm each night, with a matinee at 2pm on Sunday 22nd.

The EDT Folk Orchestra, featuring Dee Langley on accordion, will perform the music. According to Colleen Bertsch, music director, "The orchestra is incredibly excited to play the music that Liszt, Brahms, Dvorak, and Bartok found worthy of using as their creative muse. Once you hear traditional music from the Carpathians, you will understand why the great masters depended on this deep well of material: it's earthy, sexy, passionate, and real.”
