This Week in Accordion: Connecticut Zydeco

Time to check this week’s accordion events calendar

  • “Blast from the Bayou” Cajun/Zydeco Festival (Thu-Sun in Preston, CT)
    I don’t normally think of Connecticut as a zydeco hotspot, but this weekend’s Cajun/Zydeco festival in Strawberry Park brings Louisiana’s best to the Nutmeg State. Featuring Geno Delafose, Steve Riley, Chris Ardoin, Corey Ledet, the Pine Leaf Boys, the Savoy-Doucet Cajun Band, and many more.
  • Syracuse Polish Festival (Fri-Sun in Syracuse, NY)
    The 53rd Syracuse Polish Festival raises money for the Polish Scholarship Fund and features a slew of polka bands, including Lenny Gomulka and Chicago Push, Stephanie and her Honky Band, and Fritz’s Polka Band.
  • Accordion Free-For-All (Tue in Austin, TX)
    The Central Texas Accordion Association holds their annual Free-for-All, a nonstop accordion-fueled variety show.
