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.

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?

Posts: 55 01/19/08 at 07:27 PM #4ANTONIO TANGUMA GUAJARDO (q.e.p.d.)

Nació en 1903 en China, N.L., Fueron sus padres, Teófilo Tanguma, originario de General Bravo y Victoria Guajardo de China N.L.
Plática del Maestro Tanguma
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.

Squeeze Me
Feb., 17, 2008
Chris and I have had babies on the brain lately. There’s so much cool stuff out there for kids and babies nowadays! We love these “Squeeze Me” onesies featuring our favorite instrument on the front. Gotta get the kids interested in accordions young, I always say. And these onesies are extra cool because they’re made with organic cotton. This is definitely the must-have fashion item for the new baby in your life.If you missed them the first time, more accordion-related clothing products that we’ve come across and posted about can be found here in our clothing category.

Milen Slavov Teaches Anytime, Anywhere
Feb., 17, 2008
Bulgaria seems to have no shortage of great accordionists and Milen Slavov is one of the brightest lights in Balkan traditional and contemporary music. He moved to America in 1997 and currently performs, composes, produces, and teaches throughout the United States and Canada. I know a few of our readers saw him perform with the Yuri Yunakov Ensemble at the International Accordion Festival in San Antonio last year.We’ve seen some online accordion lesson courses before, but nothing quite like the ones that Milen is currently offering through his website. He offers both custom audio (he’ll send you an MP3) and custom video lessons based around one of four subjects: ornaments in Bulgarian music, Bulgarian/Balkan piano accordion music, phrases and techniques, or improvisation. Even cooler, though, you can schedule face-to-face lessons to be conducted via webcam.Normally, I’m a little skeptical of online video lessons because there’s no substitute for the feedback you get from a real teacher. But I’ll admit I’m intrigued by the possibility of taking lessons (even long-distance ones) from one of the world’s top accordionists. If anyone out there takes a lesson from Milen, let us know. I’d be really curious to hear how it goes.
