The island roads were deserted!
Feb., 23, 2008
Much Travelled accordion case- but who's?
The Cooperativa gang at Eastbourne!
'Eastbourne Accordion Festival Feb. 2008 - Review'The island roads were deserted when we left home at a most ungodly hour to catch the 5.30 am ferry.  This early start was to avoid the extortionate charges and saved £15 (Lilian said she would happily pay the extra and stay in bed).  The other advantage was that we avoided the rush hour traffic and arrived in Eastbourne at 8.30 am - in time for breakfast!  It was good to have some time for a walk along the seafront and a look at Eastbourne before making our way to the Cumberland Hotel as we know from experience that once the fun starts there is no time for anything else! By 3 pm the Cumberland was buzzing with friendly banter as accordion friends old and new were welcomed.  The serious playing was soon off to a fine start with the one and only Alan Young, another ‘caulkhead’ (Isle of Wight native).  The sounds of the jazz harmonies soon allured Harry Hussey who sidled over, ‘Baloo-like’, and joined in.  Sometimes I think he and that Borsini are joined at the hip.  Next, a demonstration of the Roland accordion given by the entertaining and capable Romano Viazzani. He certainly put the Roland through its paces and showed us a number of accordion sounds including Italian folk, French musette, diatonic accordion, classical, Scottish, bandoneon and Alpine, plus many styles: jazz, scat voice, various wind instrument sounds and combinations, more than I can remember. Gennaro Fiondella took the stage after dinner and showed what a versatile player he is with a varied programme on both piano and button accordion.  He has not been playing the button instrument for long and is already an impressive performer.  Makes you sick! At 9 pm a new sound for Eastbourne – Café Noir.  This quartet consists of Mike Piggott – violin, Mils Solberg – guitar, Gerry Higgins – bass and Harry Hussey – accordion.  A real treat for the jazz fans; four amazing musicians who stunned the audience with their technique and ensemble.  Then the ‘Flying Scotsman’ himself, Gary Blair, accordion steaming, fingers a blur, but where was the kilt?  All the girls were disappointed, Gary.  Make sure you dress up ‘proper’ next time.  Young Gary joined in and proved he is a real threat to the Blair throne.  Accordion dynasties were well represented this evening as next up was the fabulous Johnny Lee Leslie who held us all spellbound with his intelligent and sensitive playing.  The guest busking session followed for those with stamina, lasting well into the small hours while us weaker mortals went to bed. Saturday proved to be an 18 hour marathon starting with various seminars and workshops all morning.  There was orchestra with Gennaro, Sue Bennett took the absolute beginners, folk and barn dance with Angie Lukins, seminars on blues with Trevani and jazz with Harry and finally tips and tricks from Gary.  Alan entertained at lunchtime, Charlie Watkins joked and sang as only Charlie can though his support from the Eastbourne Voices could have been stronger!  It’s all very well, Charlie, but some of us are too young to know the words!  The guest concert was over-subscribed but provided an enjoyable variety from many brave players.  Gorgeous Georgeous (George Bennett) entertained us through teatime and then, at last, an hour off to get ready for dinner. The evening concert featured Harry, Johnny Lee, Gary Junior and two fabulous Italian stars – Romeo Achino and Guiseppe Grosso – two very contrasting styles, superb mastery of the instrument and a huge wow factor.  Just one request for next time, boys – please announce the titles and composers of pieces to avoid frustration.  Did recognise Rossini’s ‘Thieving Magpie’ overture to which Guiseppe received a well-deserved standing ovation.  Gary Senior led a ceilidh for those who still had some energy and Gennaro led the merry making into the small hours. Sunday morning was filled with yet more workshops and seminars and the afternoon concert sessions gave everyone the opportunity to show off in their groups as well as with various solos or ensemble items.  There were more fantastic performances from the quest artists throughout the evening (it would make this report pages long if details were given) and the party mood prevailed.  The charity raffle for Winston’s Wish, a charity for bereaved children, was very well supported.  John and Jackie have now raised well over £5,000 for this deserving cause – and they thanked everyone for donating many excellent prizes and buying plenty of tickets. Mention must be made of the quality trade stands.  Charlie Watkins had a fine display of accordions, music, CDs, DVDs and electronic gizmos, Trevani had a phantasmagoria of music and The Accordion Shop ensured Cooperativa accordions were well to the fore – many of the performers played Cooperativas and a suspicious number of Cooperativa t-shirts were being worn all weekend!  It was really good to see Rob Howard down south with his Accordion A-Z books.                    
Romeo Aichino & friends at Eastbourne Accordion Festival Feb'08
 As always, guests were well catered for, the food was excellent and hopefully, by now, the accordion fraternity realise they need to book early for these very popular events.  See you at St Audries in September and back in Eastbourne in October.  Can’t wait.  Another huge success John and Jackie – as always your organisational skills have been superb and your choice of artists and teachers excellent – these events just get better and better.   ****************
[A second accordion part to The Teddy Bears' Picnic was found so if you did buy that, please check that you have both parts and if you are the person missing a second part, please contact me (01983 861322) so I can post it to you.]
 
See you all again at the next one.
Rene Mairis and Lilian Scaddan 
Editors Note: The much travelled accordion case pictured above belongs to Gary Blair who flew from Eastbourne via Gatwick & Glasgow to a weekend festival on The Shetland Isles.

Ace Your Test With Accordion Flashcards
Feb., 23, 2008
Like many accordion players, Bill Funkhouser came to the accordion from the piano and figured, “It has a piano keyboard… how hard could it be?” And then, like many accordion players, he struggled to master the layout of buttons on the bass side of his accordion.So to help others making the same transition from piano to accordion, Bill came up with a novel study aid: Accordion Flashcards. Much like those old cards you used to cram for finals, these cards quiz you on the layout of basses and chords in the Stradella bass button system. The cards currently come in two varieties: a 12 bass set ($7.95) and a standard set ($12.95). Check out this sample card and start studying:Sample Accordion Flashcard (PDF download)
Our New Little Squeeze!
Feb., 23, 2008
If things have seemed a little slow around here lately, we (for once) have a good reason. Last Friday night, Anna gave birth to the newest member of the Let’s Polka team — a bouncing baby girl named Sarah Rose. Weighing in at 8 pounds, 14 ounces, she’s everything we dreamed and more. And we’re already planning a trip to the local accordion shops so she can pick out her first box. Gotta start ‘em young, I always say.As you can imagine, our updates (and email response times) will be inconsistent over the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you have any recommendations for soothing accordion music that a baby might enjoy during a feeding or changing, leave us a comment.

2nd Fresno Gathering in Feb.....???
Feb., 23, 2008
What's up guys, I just wanted to ask you all if you'd be interested in gathering again in Feb? I don't want to play the gathering out by having them too close together so i thought i would ask you all what you thought....If you are all down to gather again i was thinking to gather the first weekend of every month...if that is too soon, maybe since we gathered on the1st weekend of Jan. maybe we could gather on the 2nd weekend of Feb, then in March the 3rd weekend and so on to allow an extra week, not just 30 days apart...Anyway I'm down to gather any day.....How does the 10th of Feb. sound? It's a Sunday again. I think Sunday's are good because most musicians that play in a group have gigs on Sat....Let me know what you all think so we could get this set......hope more people could join our great gatherings....thanks hope to hear from all you interested soon.... For the next gathering I think that Sunday Feb. 10 is good for me......Lets get this going again.....any one interested?
