Doncaster Accordion Extravaganza - Report by Rene Mairis and Lilian Scaddan
Mar., 9, 2008

Rosemary Wright - Romano Viazzani - Pearl Fawcett-Adriano

The magnifivent view of Doncaster Racecourse

                                DONCASTER EXTRAVAGANZA  2nd March 2008 

This spectacular event certainly lived up to the hype and was indeed a wonderful treat for accordion enthusiasts.  Congratulations and thanks to Harry Kipling who organised the day at the stunning new Exhibition Centre at Doncaster Racecourse which is a superb venue: easy to find, plenty of parking, a huge area for trade stands, bar, catering, central stage for performers and room for a large audience.  The sun shone too and the view of the racecourse added to the happy atmosphere - a perfect scenario to enjoy a full day of great music and the chance to meet up with old friends and make some new ones.

Pearl-Fawcett Adriano
 

The stars were out in abundance, a veritable galaxy of them.  The show began at 10.30 am and from then on it was non-stop entertainment all the way for twelve fabulous hours.  The indefatigable Harry Hussey kicked off.  I swear that man runs on super-charged batteries!  He was on top form, as always.   Alan Young amazed us with his seemingly effortless playing.  Like Harry, he is a master of chords and modulates to surprising corners of the musical universe which keeps the audience on their toes!  Often the two were up there together doing ‘their jazz thing’ and having a blast.  Romano Viazzani showed his brilliant technique to the full, performing a variety of music, some very difficult pieces by modern composers, including Piazzola and a few well known standards in a well balanced and well executed performance. Romano gave a demonstration of the Roland accordion and how to make the most of many of its capabilities and sounds. 

Romano Viazzani

Pearl Fawcett-Adriano, a personal favourite, showed us the versatility of her repertoire and her special accordion with an exciting programme which included a number of her own compositions and arrangements.  A later session with Harry was great fun and she almost managed to control him – well done, Pearl!  As they said, those many seconds of practise really paid off.  Girl power was further enhanced when Rosemary Wright took to the stage at extremely short notice, as only a true professional can, (standing in for George Syrett who, unfortunately, was unwell that day, though he did pop in to show his support).  Rosemary gave an exciting performance and showed her extensive range of styles and genres.  The Burton Ensemble provided a lovely contrast and everyone really appreciated their musical ensemble playing.

Sam Pirt & The Hut People

Sam Pirt and the Hut People entertained with their unique style of performing folk music including an unusual and interesting array of percussion.  The presence of a number of ceramic pots and odd looking objects was a little bewildering but such is the world of the percussionist!  The highlight was definitely when Sam danced, wearing tap clogs, whilst seated, and at the same time played a fast and furious Canadian tune.  The audience were supposed to join in with the footwork and failed miserably – but we loved it.

Harry Hussey
 

Harry Kipling had promised a surprise during the interval.  This was the Dixieland Jazz Band who were fantastic - clarinet, trumpet, banjo and sousaphone.  The other Harry could not contain himself and it was not long before he was up there too jamming away.  The band were pleasantly surprised themselves when they realized what a fantastic jazz player he is. 

Alan Young

Alan Young joined in as well (he does love a sextet) and the audience loudly showed their appreciation. There were many trade stands and the chance to buy/try music, CDs, accordions both new and used, accessories, posters, old LPs and books, and to consult the experts and the artists for advice and help.  This is always of great value to us amateurs. 

The Dixieland Jazz Band

About 85 people attended this superb event which is such a shame as obviously the high costs involved are nowhere near covered and so this means Harry Kipling has had to sustain a huge financial loss.  All of us who were there would love to see this become an annual event but the chances of this happening are understandably remote.  We live on the Isle of Wight so this meant a ferry, a long car journey and two nights accommodation, but it was well worth the cost and the effort.  We thought there were many accordion enthusiasts up north (north is anywhere beyond Cowes to us), with a large number of accordion clubs and so assumed this would be sold out.  The venue is capable of easily accommodating over 400 people and so Harry must be devastated after all his efforts.  You know how it works – use it or lose it.  You may well have lost it.  Some said, ‘It was Mother’s Day’ as an excuse.  Not good enough.  Rosemary brought her mother who thoroughly enjoyed the day and surely many mums would have been delighted to have such a day out?  Let’s hope Harry will give it one more go so get it touch with him and pledge support for next year.

Rosemary Wright

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Doncaster Accordion Extravaganza - It was brilliant!!

Les Blank and the Accordion
Mar., 9, 2008
Documentary filmmaker Les Blank offers glimpses into the lives and music of passionate people on the periphery of American society. Over the past forty years, he’s covered a wide variety of ethnic cultures, from rural Louisiana French musicians to Mexican-Americans in border towns to polka nuts in the Midwest. And these aren’t stilted, Travel Channel-esque accounts; his films are warm and intimate, deftly capturing the context (food, faces, scenery) from which the music originates.

Given the subject matter, it’s no surprise his films are a treasure trove for accordion lovers. Several of his films focus on Cajun and Creole musicians in Louisiana, following legends like Bois Sec Ardoin (Dry Wood), Clifton Chenier (Hot Pepper), and the Savoys (Marc & Ann). His 1989 documentary, J’ai t Au Bal / I Went to the Dance is considered the definitive film on the history of dance music in French Southwest Louisiana.

Chulas Fronteras was one of the first films to document traditional conjunto music, including rare footage of artists like Lydia Mendoza and Santiago Jimenez Sr. (The film was deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically important” enough to be included in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry.) The clip below comes from his 1984 polka documentary, In Heaven There Is No Beer (1984); it features a colorful performance of “Who Stole the Kiszka?” by Walt Solek and his band.

You can easily lose an afternoon watching clips of Blank’s films on YouTube or at UC Berkeley’s Media Resource Center and — my apologies to your boss — I highly recommend it. Or you can order the full-length films directly from Les Blank’s website.

Cymbal Monkey Faux Pas
Mar., 1, 2008

I know how the monkey in this comic feels, showing up with an accordion and having everyone stare at you in horror. A few polkas or a quick rendition of “Rock and Roll All Nite” usually changes the mood, though. (Thanks David!)

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?

Un día de 1927, me ofrecieron un acordeoncito de dos hileras de botones; me lo vendian en veinte pesos, muy barato. Le pedí a don Guillermo García Welsh, mi patrón, el dinero y me dijo: "Pá que los quieres pela'o?, mejor ponte a trabajar, después ahí te echas a perder con la música". Como quiera me los prestó y compré el acordeón que se veía bonito, pero como yo no conocía, resulta que el acordeón era un chasco. De todos modos, empecé a darle de día y de noche. Como ensayaba también en la casa, los dueños me decían: "Mira, agarra tu tequila y vete al monte a tocarle a los pájaros". El acordeón no me duró mucho y así me di cuenta que me engañaron con la venta, de cualquier forma le enganchaba alambritos y lo hacía cantar.
Yo segía trabajando en la labor, nomás soñando en juntar unos centavitos para irme a Estados Unidos y comprar un instrumento a mi gusto. Un día que me levanto, me agarro unas tortillas y una botella con agua y me voy para Terán, a pie. Hice tres días hasta los Ramones y en la estación del tren la pregunté al boletero, hasta dónde me alcanza con dos pesos?, voy rumbo a Reynosa. El boletero me dijo; "son uno ochenta y cinco hasta Anzaldúas". Pues sí, ahí me bajaron y me fuí directo a la frontera que ya estaba muy cerca. Llegué a Corrales y corrí a un estanquillo para comprar galletas, el hombre que despachaba me vió y me dijo "Para dónde vas?", ya le expliqué que quería pasar el río y tuve tanta suerte que el señor al verme hambriento y en huaraches me dió de cenar, me permitió bañarme y hasta zapatos me regaló. Total que él mismo me recomendó con unos muchachos que me pasaron al otro lado y me llevaron a un rancho, donde el dueño me contrató para desenralzar y tumbar mezquitez. Así junté doce dólares, hasta que supe que en la feria de Laredo vendían un acordeón, fui y lo compré. Me costó diez dólares, regresé al rancho cantando y tocando. Los muchachos nomás oyeron el acordeón y se arrimaron unas botellas de vino y ahí mismo si hizo la tocada. Estamos hablando de 1917 que fue el año de mi primer acordeón bueno, porque luego compré do más en Corpus Christi; andaba que me volvía loco de gusto.
 
En 1932 me fuí a China, Nuevo León, y en 1938 para Monterrey. Tenía 35 años de edad.
 
En realidad mis primeras composiciones las traje siempre en la mente, porque cuando trabajaba en la labor, me inventaba tonadas y las repetía silbando. En 1938 terminé la primera pieza; De China a Bravo. Ese nombre you no se lo puse, pero como la pasaba viajando de China a Bravo, así se le fue quedando, fueron unos músicos que me acompañaban los que la titularon. Hasta la fecha, he compuesto más de cincuenta composiciones y las que han pegado más son; El cerro de la Silla, Evangelina, Naranjo, Blanca Nelly, María de Lourdes y otras. Mucha gente me pregunta por qué tanto nombre de mujer. Será porque los nombres de las mujeres me gustan tanto.
En 1945 me fuí a México, pero, de todas las cantinas y restaurantes me sacaban, pues el acordeón no gustaba todavía. Un día unos amigos policías de Los Herreras, Nuevo León, se metieron conmigo a un restaurante, ahí en la ciudad de México, y me pidieron que tocara. Apenas me estaba calentando cuando el mesero nos dijo: "Oiga, aquí no se puede tocar". El más grandote de los policías le contestó: "Nosotros somos de Nuevo León y este hombre del acordeón es Tanguma y su música es tan buena que donde quiera se le debe escuchar": y como mientras contestaba le enseño las pistolas... tuvieron que escucharnos toda la tarde. Lo que pasaba era que la música norteña apenas estaba naciendo, y en la mayoría de los estados del centro y sur, no se conocía. Por eso a mí me gusta Nuevo León, porque en cualquier rancho adoran el acordeón y el contrabajo. No se necesitaban muchos músicos para amenizan un buen baile. Desde 1938 que me dedique de lleno al oficio de la tocada empezó a irme bien, aunque no pagaban lo suficiente, podía mantener a mi familia. Ya nomás con juntar para los frijolitos, lo demás era ganancia. Al principio me acostumbré a tocar sólo porque había muy pocos guitarreros que me acompañaran, pero de 1940 para acá, empecé a organizar mi grupo, casi siempre tocábamos a dueto: acordeón y contrabajo. De tódas mis composiciones, el shotís del Cerro de la Silla es la que más me gusta. Esta composición nació como un chipazo, en un rancho en las faldas del Cerro de la Silla. En la mañana quedaron unos amigos de pasar por mí para tocar en una tardeada; no llegaban y se hacía tarde; yo estaba muy desveladoy tenía mucha hambre, bueno, pues me recosté a esperar, como no queriendo, agarré el acordeón, y ya de rato me gustó lo que estaba tocando, repetí las notas y las memoricé; cuando llega el guitarrero y me dice: "Oye esa pieza es muy buena, no te la había escuchado", no hombre, dije yo, es la cruda y la sed que me están haciendo ver visiones. Tiempo depués llegaron a mi casa unos gringos de una casa disquera que me querían escuchar y les toqué el shotís que hice acerca del Cerro de la Silla; les gusto mucho, y como no tenia título, pues así se le quedó, El Cerro de la Silla. Todavía dicen muchas gentes que nomás la escuchan, y se les mueven la piernas solas, que esa piesa hace bailar a cualquiera, auque no sepan. Me gusta ese shotís, me gusta ver a los niños que lo bailan en las escuelas, en las asambleas y en los concursos escolares. Mi vida ha sido el acordeón y mi familia. Me casé cuando tenía como treinta años: a mi esposa la conocí en un baile, muy bonita, se llama María de Jusús, me gustó desde que la ví, y me dije, yo me quedo con esa chiquilla porque ella es mucho más chica que yo; me casé con ella en 1933 y tenemos once hijos. Ahora tengo casi los ochenta y cuando escucho un acordeón, no sé por qué, a veces me dan ganas de llorar, me da como cierto coraje que allá por los treinta, mucha gente no quería el acordeón y ahora sí. La música norteña termino imponiendo su fuerza... bendito sea Dios que el acordeón ya tiene su historia.

Antonio Tanguma Guajardo, murió el 5 de diciembre de 1989.
Es el artista de música norteña de más reconocimiento nacional e internacional. Sus polkas, redovas, shotises y huapangos, los han bailado generaciones enteras de niños, en miles de escuelas de todo el Norte del país.
