This Week in Accordion: Tejano Conjunto Festival

What’s on the accordion calendar this week?

  • Tejano Conjunto Festival (Thu-Sat in San Antonio, TX)
    One of the biggest and best conjunto festivals of the year takes place this weekend in Rosedale Park. The lineup is a “who’s who” of conjunto accordion legends: Mingo Saldivar, Flaco Jimenez, Joel Guzman, Eva Ybarra, Flavio Longoria… you get the idea. Don’t miss this one.
  • Billy McComiskey (Friday in New York, NY)
    Button box virtuoso (and Brooklyn native) Billy McComiskey performs at NYU with banjoist Peter Fitzgerald and keyboardist Matt Mulqueen.
  • Gator By The Bay (Sat-Sun in San Diego, CA)
    San Diego’s biggest Zydeco, Blues and Crawfish Festival features entertainment on three stages with huge wooden dance floors and bands like Jeffery Broussard and the Creole Cowboys, Brian Jack and the Zydeco Gamblers, and more.

As usual, if you have an accordion event in your area — polka, zydeco, rock, whatever — and it isn’t on our calendar yet, tell us about it!
