This Week in Accordion: Kimberley Accordion Championships

Let’s see what’s on the accordion calendar this week:

  • Kimberley International Old Time Accordion Championships (Mon-Sat in Kimberley, BC, Canada)
    A week-long festival full of concerts and competitions, right in the heart of beautiful British Columbia. Guest artists include Sammy Thomas, the Al Meixner Trio, and many more.
  • Pistolera (Wednesday in San Francisco, CA)
    Indie rock meets Mexican folk music in Pistolera, a NYC quartet led by Sandra Lilia Velasquez and the driving accordion melodies of Maria Elena.
  • Motordude Zydeco (Thursday in Palo Alto, CA)
    The Palo Alto Brown Bag concert series kicks off with a lunchtime zydeco dance party. I’ll be there (probably wearing this shirt), so stop by, say ‘hi’, and I’ll give you some Let’s Polka stickers.

There’s plenty more, too — including Brave Combo on tour and the return of the Conjunto Accordion Jam in San Jose. If you have an accordion event (concert, festival, etc.) to add to our calendar, let us know!
