This Week in Accordion: Main Squeeze

What’s happening in the accordion world this week?

  • Main Squeeze Accordion Orchestra (Wednesday in New York, NY)
    What could be more romantic than spending Valentine’s Day with New York City’s only all-female, all-accordion orchestra? (Note: we cannot be held responsible if you’re swept off your feet by a winsome lass toting a Hohner.)
  • Mardi Gras Ball (Saturday in Cranston, RI)
    Mardi Gras isn’t until next Tuesday, but why wait to start partying? This 15th Annual Cajun & Zydeco Mardi Gras Ball (located just outside Providence) features Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys, CJ Chenier and the Red Hot Louisiana Band, and the Creole Cowboys.
  • 21 Accordion Salute to Merv Conn (Sunday in Silver Springs, MD)
    Watch the Washington-area premiere of The Legend of Merv Conn, a documentary tribute to this local accordionist’s life and work. Then stay and participate in the 21-accordion salute honoring his 87th birthday. Save room for birthday cake! (Update: The Washington Post has an article on Merv’s big day.)
