The Narciso Martinez Conjunto Cultural Arts Center
225 E. Stenger Street
San Benito, Texas

The Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center, with the help of Miller Lite and the City of San Benito, is proud to announce the 17th Annual Conjunto Festival. This three-day event has become a staple event for the community, attracting over 3,500 people for a celebration of live Texas-Mexico Conjunto music.

The caliber of this festival has garnered national attention. This year marks a special milestone for the Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center as it celebrates the 10th year anniversary of the release of the Festival’s CD entitled “Taquachito Nights” produced in 1998 by the Smithsonian Institution’s Folkway Recordings label produced which is now available for sale world-wide.

This year will feature a reunion of the 1998 musical line-up which included Gilberto Perez, Ernesto Guerra, Ricardo Guzman, Freddy Gonzalez, Martin Zapata, Los Fantasmas del Valle, Beto Martinez and Conjunto Aztlan. Two conjunto greats that are no longer living will be represented by their offspring and family: Valerio Longoria will be represented by his son, Flavio Longoria and Tony de la Rosa will be represented by his nephews, Los D Boyz.

Other featured bands this year will include some Festival regulars such as Conjunto Heritage Taller of San Antonio, Juan Lugo y su Conjunto and Los Angeles del Sur. Highlighting the Festival will be two conjunto legends - Oscar Hernandez and the headliner, Esteban Jordan.

“We’re happy to be celebrating another milestone,” says NMCAC co-founder and Festival artistic director, Ramon de Leon. “We’ve done a lot of work over the years to celebrate our music and our people and we’ve had good results, like Taquachito Nights.”

The three-day celebration includes live music, dancing, and food and beverage for the entire family. General admission is $2.00 each day; children under 12 receive free admission.
NMCAC invites interested parties to join the three-day Conjunto celebration as volunteers or as food or crafts vendors. Fourteen booths are available for rent to the public and will be rented on a first-come, first-serve basis. Booth rental fees are $175 for three days. For more information on booth rentals, please call Yolanda Lopez at (956) 571-3325.

Jascha Heifetz Cheats on Violin With Accordion
Sep., 24, 2008
Before Rolling Stone, before Spin, even before Let’s Polka, there was Accordion World magazine — keeping its finger on the pulse of America’s hottest up-and-coming instrument. Zevy Zions sent us this fantastic piece from the November 1936 issue which excitedly discusses violin virtuoso Jascha Heifetz’s interest in the accordion and what it means for the instrument:“THE EMINENT VIOLINIST, JASCHA HEIFETZ, is shown in the above photograph, apparently taking his accordion very seriously. It has become now, not a fad, but a matter of real interest with some of our most prominent musicians in other fields, to take to their bosom our beloved instrument. Mr. Heifetz is studying the accordion and may soon surprise some of our best players.A few years ago a photograph like this would have appeared preposterous. Today our Symphony orchestras are accepting the accordion one by one. Three or four of our universities are already admitting the instrument and giving credit for it. A great many of our high schools have their own accordion bands. Our great name orchestras are not only including but featuring the accordion. And now our greatest musicians are taking it up. That is progress.”Progress!
Let’s Polka in the Palo Alto Weekly
Sep., 24, 2008
We often link to profiles of accordionists in newspapers around the globe, but today we’re linking to something a bit closer to home. In our own house, actually. This weekend’s issue of the Palo Alto Weekly has a very flattering cover story on our family and how accordion music brought Anna and I together (and inspired this site):“Fast forward to 2003… A girl named Anna messaged Saccheri on Friendster. She said she liked accordions too, that she’d been playing since high school. After exchanging a few e-mails, the couple started dating. The end of the story is the stuff of fairy tales: They’re now living happily ever after in accordion-playing bliss with their 6-month-old daughter Sarah in a little house near the Stanford campus.”Thanks to Jill Kimball, Marjan Sadoughi, Karla Kane, and everyone else at the Weekly for the excellent article!
Henry Doktorski’s Historic Records on CD
Aug., 5, 2008
Today I was going through my record collection, wondering if any of my old accordion records were available on CD. Sadly, many of them have not been remastered to CD. However, in my search I discovered that accordionist Henry Doktorski has taken the time to remaster some of his historic accordion records to CD! He sells copies of the CDs from his website for $15 each plus extra for shipping, handling and (optional) insurance. He has several albums by Myron Floren and Charles Magnante, as well as others. Take a look! While the recordings are not perfect (there are unavoidable hisses and skips), this is definitely a great resource for fans of the accordion.
Richard Galliano and Tangaria Quartet
Aug., 5, 2008
The annual Ottawa International Jazz Festival just wrapped up and one of the biggest hits was French accordion virtuoso Richard Galliano. Performing with his Tangaria Quartet, Galliano’s concert was “as thrilling a performance as was heard” throughout the entire festival, according to a review in the Ottawa Citizen. Galliano “reeled off one exhilarating song after another,” allowing the audience “to lose themselves in his brilliance.” Not a bad review, I’d say.Born in Cannes in 1950, Richard Galliano studied at a conservatory as a youth, but quickly changed his musical devotion to jazz after hearing (and memorizing the solos of) jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown. Galliano set out to establish the accordion’s reputation in jazz, becoming a sought-after accompanist and soloist. Astor Piazzolla invited him to be the bandoneon soloist at the Comdie Franaise production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” starting a close friendship that lasted until Piazzolla’s death in 1992.More recently, Galliano has become known for a style he calls “New Musette” — a fusion of styles ranging from samba and salsa to waltz and tango. Regardless of what he’s playing, though, it’s always with unparalleled skill and passion. Here’s a fantastic video of Galliano performing Piazzolla’s “Libertango” solo:
Julieta Venegas Goes Unplugged
Aug., 5, 2008
I thought MTV gave up on music years ago, opting instead to corner the market on inane reality shows for 16 year olds. Despite their best efforts, however, some music manages to occasionally escape onto their airwaves. Thankfully, one example is Mexican singer/songwriter/accordionist Julieta Venegas’ recent performance on MTV Unplugged, which was released this month as both an album and DVD.Trained as a classical musician on piano and cello before rising to fame with the accordion, Venegas decided to take a fresh approach for her Unplugged performance, including instruments like the ukelele, banjo, xylophone, and tuba. And in addition to hits from her four albums, she unveiled a handful of new tunes, including “Ilusin,” a Spanish/Portuguese duet with Marisa Monte, and the bouncy “El Presente,” which you can watch over at YouTube:Julieta Venegas: El Presente

August 8th, 9th and 10th 2008
Folk assured a great time at Dartmoor Festival!One of the highlights in West Devon each summer is the Dartmoor Folk Festival, which is centred on the village of South Zeal.It attracts people from far and near, who meet up to hear top artists from the folk world performing alongside some of the best local entertainers.This year the line-up includes: The Young Coppers, Steamchicken, Mawkin:Causley, Keith Donnelly, Mick Ryan and Paul Downes, Wistman’s Wood and Jim Bainbridge.Also appearing will be Rob Pudner, Dave Wills, Tony Beard (The Wag from Widecombe) and the Dartmoor Pixie Band.From Friday, August 8 to Sunday, August 10, the Dartmoor Folk Festival will include the Dartmoor Step Dance and Broom Dance Championships, a Dartmoor Fayre, craft displays, dances, a music hall, ceilidh, workshops, folk service, pub sessions, children’s entertainment, plus a Sunday ramble.In addition to Morris and Dance Teams, there will be an increase on the new and exciting Children’s Festival, which includes circus skills, storytelling, arts and crafts, music sessions, and much more.The Dartmoor Folk Festival was founded by local musician, the late Bob Cann BEM, who had the idea that he would like to start his own folk festival to help revive and preserve the traditions of Dartmoor and, in particular, the traditional music, dance, song and crafts of the area.His inspiration is continued by an association of local enthusiasts, including members of his own family and friends, and this will be the 31st annual festival.Events take place at the village playing field, in South Zeal’s Victory Hall, at St Mary’s Church and other venues.Local crafts will be exhibited in the craft tent and there will also be sideshows, dance displays, and much more.  There is a caravan and campsite with all the usual facilities.The Festival begins on the Friday with a Folk Concert and Dance.On the Saturday morning there are workshops and music and song sessions.On Saturday afternoon, there is a concert, which is followed by the Grand Dart-i-moor Fayre, from 2.30-5pm, which will feature the Dartmoor Broom Dance Championships and the Dartmoor Step Dance Championships.The Step Dance competition is one of the main traditions associated with the festival.  It involves dancers trying to out-step one another on a 15-inch square board, to win a place in the competition’s final, which is held on an old hay wagon.A workshop is run during the morning that teaches the basic steps and those who take part are invited to compete. A junior and senior champion is selected.  Wearing shoes with hard soles is advised.The Dartmoor Broom Dance Championship is for primary school aged children only.  Another Dartmoor tradition, this competition involves dancing with a broom, or rather over a broom.Children are invited to learn the series of moves involved at a workshop also held on Saturday morning.  On Saturday evening there is a concert and ceilidh.A ramble on Dartmoor is the first activity on Sunday, followed by a children’s workshop, dance workshops, song and music sessions and a Folk Service at South Tawton Parish Church.Sunday afternoon includes music, song and dance at the playing field arena from 2pm to 4.30pm. There will also be a concert and children’s evening, after which the weekend concludes with a grand Music Hall.Alan Quick, Festival publicity officer, explained: “An action-packed programme has been arranged and we are looking forward to a great festival.“There will be three days of music, song and dance, plus much more,” he said.“The festival is one of the highlights of the summer on the moor and it certainly shouldn’t be missed.“Entertainment is arranged for the whole family and there are events to take part in or simply sit and watch.“The weather will not be a problem either, because large marquees are erected to transfer into under cover, if needed.“We look forward to a successful and enjoyable festival.”For further information send an SAE to the secretary, Mrs Jane White, Sunnyhill, Zeal Head, South Zeal, Okehampton, Devon EX20 2JL.  You can telephone Jane on 01837 840102, or email: This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it .Alternatively, check out the website at www.dartmoorfolkfestival.co.uk .

Chocolate Accordion Cake (Yum!)
Jun., 27, 2008
When Debbie Budd’s father turned 80 years old, she didn’t bake him an ordinary cake. No sir, she made this delicious masterpiece — a chocolate accordion cake complete with white chocolate buttons and chocolate icing bellows. The cake is a full-size replica of a two-row button accordion that Debbie bought her father as a birthday gift. Read Debbie’s instructions to learn how to make your own, or check out this YouTube video where Debbie points out some of the cake’s finer details. (Anyone else need a glass of milk after seeing that cake?)[Found via TDA's Wall of Wheeze]
