Lindum Accordion Club
Apr., 20, 2008

Dear UKAO,........ I would just like to give our club a plug , we don't hear about the LINDUM ACCORDION CLUB at Wragby near LINCOLN ,very much,

We have about 54 members from all over Lincoln and over the Humber bridge in Hull and area,  About 5 of us joined from Hull club when it closed last year and we were all made very welcome . 

Harry says all are welcome at The Lindum Accordion Club!

 The club has a very friendly atmosphere , the band lets anyone play, readers and nonreaders ,and being a non reader ,it really helps to gain confidence, and now I've got the courage to play in front ,after the tea break   ,Another thing the club is good at ,is raising funds for charity . Lindum club supports and raises money for LINCOLN ST.BARNABAS HOSPISE. In the last 8months ,up to January 08 ,a staggering £1124 has been donated to the Hospise ,, FANTASTIC .. This was made up from members playing at functions, £100 from raffles ,and would you believe , £24 selling doggy bags of food left over from our christmas dinner, also, selling an accordion that a member donated £85. Thanks to Wendy ,the treasurer ,for the figures .. What a nice club . We have a good time every 3rd wed of the month from 8.00pm.

Do join us if you are near ! ...Best Wishes from ....Harry Kipling  

On wednesday 19th March 2008 our very special guest artiste will be Pearl-Fawcett Adriano - doors open at 7.45pm and this will be a fantastic evening of entertainment!

La India Canela on NPR
Apr., 20, 2008
There was a great interview on NPR today with Dominican accordionist La India Canela. She has twice won the Cassandra award for her hit songs and is now releasing an album in the United States, Merengue Tipico from the Dominican Republic.

She had a tough start; her father didn’t want her to play the accordion, so she had to hide to practice. Then, after she was discovered, she had to convince him to let her play in the city. Overcoming the social stigma of the accordion being a man’s instrument was a challenge, but her love for the music was deep and she was determined to stick with it.

“Accordion is very profound, and you feel it probably from the moment you are in your mother’s womb.”

Now she’s one of The Dominican Republic’s most famous musicians. You can listen to the NPR interview as well as some clips of her playing here.

Squeezin’ at SXSW 2008
Mar., 30, 2008
The South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival kicked off in Austin today and, with hundreds of artists performing at over eighty venues, there are plenty of accordions in the mix. As we’ve done in previousyears, here’s a quick look at some performers that may have flown under your radar:Dusty Rhodes and the River Band
Not your typical West Coast indie rock band, this Orange County six piece blends a love for 70’s era classic rock with folk and bluegrass, ensuring that the guitars are never far from the accordion, violin, and banjo.
Dusty Rhodes and the River Band: Dear Honeymp3Rupa and The April Fishes
Hailing from our backyard — the San Francisco Bay Area — Rupa and the April Fishes mix sounds from the Far East, Europe, Latin America and the US, with multilingual performances in French, Spanish, English, Hindi and Roma. The band features Isabel Douglass on the accordion.
Rupa and The April Fishes: Une Americaine a Parismp3Rana Santacruz
Born in Mexico City and heavily influenced by both folk and alternative music, Santacruz’s music has been labeled by some as “Irish mariachi”, favoring acoustic instruments like the guitar, accordion, and guitarrone.
Rana Santacruz: Cajita de Barromp31001 Nights Orchestra
Austin’s longest running Middle Eastern music group has a repertoire that stretches from Southwest Asia and the Caucuses in the East to the shores of the Mediterranean in the West, as well as many original compositions.
1001 Nights Orchestra: Neda Voda Nali Valamp3There’ll also be a number of accordion-toting bands performing that we’ve covered here before, including DeVotchKa, Pistolera, Bowerbirds, Great Lakes Myth Society, The Felice Brothers and many others.There are few places where you can hear so many excellent artists in one place, so if you’re anywhere near Austin this week — on your way to the National Accordion Association convention in Richardson, perhaps? — stop in, have a drink, and meet your new favorite band.

Lars Holm Teachers & Students Workshop - 9th March'08.
Lars Holm at the RAM
About 10 teachers attended this terrific workshop by the internationally recognised pedagogical expert Lars Holm.  They came from the length and breadth of the country as far north as Scotland and Northern Ireland to the south coast and from Essex to the West Midlands.  There were young students from 4 years old right up to university age. There were also a handful of mature adult students at varying stages of their musical development as well as other people just taking a keen interest.  The aim of the workshop was to help teachers in the UK with keeping their student’s interest so that they don’t get bored and hopefully become the next generation of professional UK-reared accordionists. 
Owen Murray in conversation with Lars Holm
Owen Murray, professor of accordion at the Royal Academy began the day by welcoming all the teachers and students to the workshop.  He explained that Lars Holm had been a teacher of pedagogy at the Royal Danish Conservatoire when he himself was studying there and had published lots of interesting music for accordion students several of which are used in the Trinity Guildhall Accordion Syllabus. With the government accredited syllabus now in its fourth year and the accordion department now in its 22nd year, the professor said that he felt the structures were all in place for an accordion student to flourish from the beginners stages all the way to professional status.  The nature of accordion work available has changed somewhat in the years that I have been a professional.  When I started out semi-professionally in 1981 I got a fair bit of “stereotypical” accordion work; walking around dressed as a french onion-seller playing french musette, or a gondolier in a boater playing italian serenades, parties, weddings and Bar Mitzfahs with my band, always wondering whether anyone was actually listening to the background accordion “wallpaper” I was churning out from the corner of a restaurant - and occasionally someone would say “that was nice”.  Not much reward for the many hours of practising spent each day either financially or morally. All the time, I was hungry for more; to make my mark, to say something new with my instrument that someone would actually listen to. What is great about the type of work today is that there is a lot of really interesting and challenging work available.  Work where people do want to listen to the music and not just to leap around the dance floor to it doing a mock-tango, or the kind of work where one is told to play quietly because they can’t hear themselves talk.   Now people want to listen to Jazz accordion, to Classical Accordion, to World Music, to Folk Music, they want to hear the accordion as part of a symphony orchestra, a chamber orchestra, in the orchestra pit of our theatres and even on stage in our theatres.  It’s even getting a “quietly cool” reputation in pop bands. Composers want to write for it as a solo instrument, as part of a larger ensemble and for incidental music in films and television. This new kind of work was around years ago but it was in the minority and usually one or two good players got the bulk of it. Today there is much more of it but the level of performance is also on the rise and the challenges set by it are greater.  For this it is important to hold our students’ interest and make them realise that a good career is now feasible.  If the only work they will most likely get is sitting in the corner of a restaurant they are not likely to be very inspired. It’s vital then for teachers not only keep their students’ interest by offering new and different repertoire but also for them to keep abreast with the many wonderful and original new artists who finding success in areas where the accordion was previously hardly ever seen. This means seeking out new artists, ensembles, going to concerts and festivals of all descriptions.  This is made easy by the internet today.

The workshop suggested many ways of making interesting music on standard or free-bass accordions, playing solo and as part of a group even before a student can actually read music properly.  Much of the music that Holm used was either his own material or arrangements of well-known pieces and despite being very apologetic about the standard of his English he enthralled his workshop audience all day long making fewer grammatical errors than many natives I could think of.  Particularly entertaining was an example of an exercise he does with some of his intermediate to advanced students of a simple Finnish polka played in first a Swedish style, then in a Russian Style, then Brazilian, Tex Mex, Balkan and finally in a Bulgarian style with a tricky time signature where 15 beats are divided at the halfway point of 7 and a half.  The latter two raised a laugh particularly from the students studying at the Academy of Balkan origin!After a brief history of free-bass accordion recordings going back to the 1910s and a history of Sweden’s contribution to accordion music, Holm worked with the youngest students who study with Elaine Beecham and Ingrid Gould.  They played a few pieces each to demonstrate their level and then Holm got them playing together as an ensemble. They were an absolute credit to their teachers in the way they participated in both morning and afternoon sessions and waited patiently and without getting frustrated or bored in the interim period.  Then Holm worked with adult students.  It’s a shame that some adults brought their accordions but didn’t feel brave enough to play them because Holm has a wonderful way of making people feel at ease on stage.

After lunch there was a brief recital by three of the six students at the Academy.  It was a great opportunity to see the entry level that is now required to study there.  Rafal Luc, only 18 years of age and in his second term at the RAM gave an extremely mature performance of Prelude and Fugue No.24 from (48 Preludes and Fugues –J.S. Bach) and a sensitive yet exhilarating performance of Interieur (Angelis).  This was followed by a beautifully expressive May (Tchaikovsky) and the subtly virtuosic Revis Fairy Tale (Schnittke) by Ksenija Sidorova. The finale was by 2nd Year Post-Grad student Franko Bozac accompanied by Makiko Sada on Piano and Calum Gourlay on Double Bass with a blistering performance of Le Grand Tango (Piazzolla).After these amazing performances Holm demonstrated ideas for advanced students and for these he used some of the Academy’s own students Ksenija Sidorova, Trang Nguyen, Rafal Luc and one of Elaine Beecham’s advanced students, Sam Davis who is currently studying music at Canterbury University majoring in Accordion.  Here music was used so reading skills were required, ensemble playing also develops the ear, rhythm and timing and other devices such as bellow shakes and left hand chord substitutions were explored.There was then a chance for Holm to play excerpts from some of his albums of compositions.  Thankfully Holm had brought a few copies for teachers to view and buy if they wished as there have been problems obtaining accordion music from small publishers both for individuals and music stockists in the UK.  The publishers should wise up to this as the current expiry date on the current syllabus is 2010.  There was another chance for the adult students to play where the morning session’s themes were expanded into playing in canon. The youngsters too finally got another chance to play and demonstrated that they had absorbed fully what had been taught that morning so all credit to the youngest students Kieran and Kristian Kanapathy, Darius Lau and Liam Rice.To finish Holm touched on the pieces of his and his colleagues such as Tom Pedersen that are included in the Trinity Guildhall Syllabus.  I know that many teachers would have liked to have discussed this topic more but the time flew and the Academy closes at 5.30 on Sundays.  Based on the success of this workshop Owen Murray would very much like to invite Lars Holm back next year and this being the case and the participation being similar there ought to be I would hope, another opportunity for eager teachers to ask questions and seek advice regarding the syllabus and further education in the UK again and for those teachers and students who didn’t make it this year to experience a really enjoyable and informative day.Romano Viazzani

"Spies" - Lyn Gardner - Wednesday February 27, 2008  - The Guardian  It is wartime Britain,Stephen and his friend and neighbour Keith Hayward have a summer to fill. Excitement and the stakes rise when Keith announces that his mother is a German spy. They decide to watch her every move. Michael Frayn's novel of adult secrets and childhood mysteries is lush with the remembrance of things past. Any stage adaptation requires the theatre to be thick with the fragrance of privet hedges as the elderly Stefan sets off on a journey into the past and suburban Surrey in search of his boyhood self, Stephen. However, Theatre Alibi's attempt does not quite make the nostrils flare.
It is a quietly entertaining evening, although the first half moves slower than a snail over a well-manicured lawn. The design is ingenious but too busy, with corrugated iron rather than hedges. Only Mr Hayward's sharpening of his garden shears and whistling offer the understated menace of quiet cul-de-sacs, where hidden emotional bombs could be detonated at any time. Theatre Alibi have a reputation as terrific storytellers and it is the narrative that carries them through here, with neat touches such as the live cello and accordion accompaniment. The show is at its best when at its quietest: Stefan peering puzzled at his younger self as if faced with a complete stranger. The piece feels as if it needs a smaller, more intimate staging to show both Frayn's novel and the company to best advantage. But there are some fine performances here, most notably from Benjamin Warren as Stephen and John-Paul Macleod as Keith, a boy who will grow up to be just like his father.***********************************************************************************************************
